    Hmmm... this discussion is frightening me! No one ever mentioned to me that constipation may be an issue with phentermine. Is this pretty common? I'm only on day one, so I'll have to see. Maybe it will actually help me out because I have IBS and it causes me to....now don't freak out...it causes me to go 4-6 times a day! If this can help me go less frequently then it may be a good side effect for me.

    I just had this conversation with my sister and she told me that she had used a liquid form in a bottle and it worked wonders too,maybe this is the Total Clean stuff.She said she got cherry flavor and put in the fridge to get cold because it made it go down easier taste wise.Now I had this problem with not having a BM about a week ago and didn't know about this bottle stuff ,I took 3 of the colace and it did nothing at all for me so I got desperate and bought a fleets enema and it did the trick but I'm not wanting to have to repeat that little task again,ugh.Next time I'm finding this cherry liguid stuff for sure.

    when i first started taking colace things went back to normal and i did what you did....stopped taking them. biggest mistake of my life! if i didn't take them for a few days my next trip to the bathroom was going to be awful! that's why i'm glad i found something else. colace was just like one more thing to worry about every day.

    I have some of that Magnesium Citrate in my bathroom closet. I haven't drank any yet,as I am dreading the taste-doesn't look too good LOL. But then again,I guess I haven't had to go bad enough yet to get desperate. I might try it later tonight.

    Thanks for the info girls .

    I didn't have this problem until recently. I am so mad because I started taking stool softeners and metamucil on Wednesday in preparation for my Saturday weigh in. Nope, didn't go, and then this morning (Sunday) I went! After the weigh in of course. I am going to have to get some of that stuff that works in 2 hours because metamucil is not like that.
    Thanks for the tip!

    Mandagirl I just noticed you took 3 Colace?? Did your doctor prescribe this for you or did you purchase it over the counter? I think my script says to take one daily.

    I am not worried about needing it all the time. I only take it once a week. mainly on weekend so I am at home and close to the bathroom. I have not had many problems with going but when I feel like I need that extra poo I take it and it makes me feel alot better. Make me feel cleaner on the inside. I lose about 3 to 5 pounds when I take it. It is hard to believe that we have that much poo in uslOLOLLOOO pretty gross huhhuhhuh!!!
    This has defendly been a road well traveled, I have never looked back,Hope the furture is as bright as the sun.....

    I've been on phen for almost a month and a half now. I have had to take something to be able to go since my first week on it. I'm scared that my body will become dependant on using something the whole time I'm on Phen, then what? Do any of you ladies have that concern as well?

    I have Colace in the cabinet right now. It was prescribed after I had my last baby but I never used it. I may start using it now. Thanks.

    Magnesium citrate is pretty much epsom salt solution, and it WORKS...comes in a glass bottle but doesn't necessarily have to be called Total Clean. I took it way back when I started phen and was having a hard time going....I keep one bottle at home in case of emergency.....but since I did the colonix colon cleanse I haven't been getting backed up.....

    I never thought I'd jump for joy and feel fabulous after going potty...I guess that is when I truly realized I was getting old......lol

    mazel tov on your pooping, and you lost weight too..yay
    I did it!! Reached goal and have been here for quite a while thanks to low carb eating and working out like crazy! Phen didn't work for me, but that isn't to say that there aren't other ways. God bless all of you!

    my husband is at Target, I just called him and told him to get that total clean stuff because he has been wanting something... hope it works for him too.

    colace is pretty good.....i was on it regularly for awhile before i found miralax. i found that colace didn't make me go, but when i did go it wasn't SO hard to go. but you have to take the pills twice a day religiously because if you stop then your butt will be bleeding the next time u go haha. that's why i like miralax better cus u can just drink it and then forget it.

    I never thought regularity could cause me such joy! LOL I was just uncomfortable! It wasn't about the weight anymore, I was looking feeling pregnant! I feel like I can go back and do it again soon. That is some good stuff!

    Default Woot! For the ladies who need to poo!

    Go to the drugstore and get you some Colace! Now! Run! Wonderful!

    I woke up this morning (after having a sm. BM in the am, nothing to write home about though...) and weighed 259.5 *sigh*
    So I had my normal day....Took my phen, my lipitrol, my wellbutrin and added 3 colace tablets thinking they would probably not work...
    Then we went out to dinner (cue dread music here.....Duh Duh Duhhhhh)
    I ate. I was SO hungry. I had 2 yeast rolls, a large salad with 1 boiled egg (just the white...) a little cheese, grilled steak and dressing on the side (dipped fork....Was just as good if not better!). Wanted water, but it tasted funky so i elected Diet Coke.
    After dinner, they had these "shooter desserts". They are literally the size of a shot glass! What a great idea! So I had a PB chocolate one YUM

    So we walked and ******d a bit and my tummy started to rumble so we get home and sweet jesus what relief! To be on and off the toilet in 5 mins is a feat I haven't accomplished in the 3 weeks since I started Phen!

    The kicker? Even haven eaten all that food, I get on the scale and woo hoo! 258 baby! YAY!
