My Doctor has prescribed Stool Softeners (Seenosides). I have to take 7 to 8 tablets per day to offset the side effects of constipation. I'm trying to switch to another RX to help with the constipation, but so far I have not found anything. The Sennosides discolor the inside of Colons so when a Colonoscopy is administered the GI Doctor cannot see the Colon Lining clear. Does anyone have a recommendation? I have been taking Ranexa since March of 2012... 1000 MG per day; the Cardiologist wanted me to take 2000 MG per day but I couldn't because 2000 MG makes the Constipation much much worse; I can tolerate 1000 MG per day.
