    Oh that sounds like fun! I've never been regular and probably only went every few days. Sorry that you havethe same problem, but I don't feel so alone in this problem anymore! I thought it was just me!

    dancemom10, I know exactly what you mean, I have absolutely no urge to go at all! I am actually jealous of my hubby who has a bm like clockwork every day! I cannot imagine! In my whole life, I don't think that I had a bm every day! I feel lucky to have one every few days would be good! I figure I will probably have to have a colonoscopy sooner than later!

    I haven't heard of Acai berry. But there are alot of products people have mentioned on this page. I just can't believe that I have to track when I last went, I'm not kidding, I don't feel like going at all. I take exlax every Saturday just to empty out because I know it's got to be there!

    dancemom10, I cracked up when you talked about how you felt like an old lady obsessing about your bowels!!! That is what I was thinking about myself too! I work with older adults, so trust me, that is something that some of them obsess about!! I also have always had constipation and the phen has made it worse, in fact, sometimes I think I may have diverticulitis as I get severe pains in my lower left abdomen and try to have a bm, but it is too painful! Has anyone else dealt with that ever? Has anyone ever heard or used any products with that Acai berry? Supposedly that has great health benefits and can also act as a cleanser.

    Senna C tablets also work really well there is a Senna tea too which is what is in the Super Dieters Tea and that stuff is very good. Make sure you will be home the next day if you take it at night Nothing worse than having to poo when you are out shopping - TMI ... I know

    I get the cinnamon flavored tea and it actually tastes good. I have made it part of my nightly routine.

    Also, someone posted this last week (and forgive me for forgetting who), but the Slim Quick Cleanse for Women works GREAT! I started it yesterday, and wow what a difference! I haven't seen any huge changes in my weight, but I have been spending a lot of time in the bathroom, so that has to be doing something. It is definitely CLEANSING!

    SUPER DIETER'S TEA!!! It works and it is cheap! You can buy it at WalMart and most grocery stores for around $4.00. You will find it in the isle with coffee and tea. All you do is drink 6oz of tea every night before bed. I PROMISE you, within 10 hours you will feel a difference! I drink it at least 5 nights a week. It makes a really big difference!

    Thanks everyone for the tips. I've tried the stool softner and it didn't do anything for me. I think I'll try the tea someone mentioned. It's nice to know I'm not the only one with this problem

    I have the same problem, I hate it. I am trying a stool softner once a day. It kind of freaked me out at first until I read that other people taking phen are experiencing the same thing. I used to go quite often, but then when I started the phen it was like woah... If I keep having the problem I will take the advise and grab something like metamucil, I also heard that a yogurt (like activia) works, I read that on another forum here.

    Walk : I have walked around inside the building I work in a lot lately however I stop and chat so I don't think that counts.

    I use the Fiber One cereal twice a day, it really works and it's only 60 calories ... you can mix some fruit with it, so it's not so plain

    I get the 3 Ballerina tea, the natural green leaf brand -- I brew and drink a cup in the evening before bedtime (with a couple packs of artificial sweetner), and in the morning, success!! It can be purchased either at those mom&pop Korean stores, or ordered online at amazon.com - pls. don't suffer, my friend; there are a lot of things out there to help you; good luck!

    Default Suggestion

    You can try fibersure, its made by Metimusil but its a tasteless white powder that you can add to drinks or sauces without the gritt feeling. I also use the chewable ones, kida tastes like candy? worth a try... good luck

    Try taking adding Metamucil to your daily regimen. It does not work "immediately" like a laxative, but it will work eventually. In the past, I found that taking it 3 times a day (before each meal) worked for me.

    I need to take my own advice... cuz I am having the same problem. Note to self: Pick up Metamucil today.
