Amitiza will sit in my bowel and I have to strain to get it moving. Lots of gas first. Right now I take two pink ducolax to move stool out without straining every third or fourth day but I can end up with loose stools and diarrhea. I do eat fruit and vegetables and walk alot. Maybe I should be taking a laxative every day but don't want to end up with diarrhea. Any advice on other laxative supplements that might
work better for me would be appreciated. Note> I only take one or two 7.5 hydrocodone a day.
