This is Dr. David
I am sorry you are constipated.
you need to be drinking lots of fluids.
and you need to continue to use these ducolax suppository
and also add on a laxative like miralax (polyethylene glycol)
you might also need to use a fleet enema to help get your stools to move as well.
but using these laxatives and suppositories and enemas will pull water and fluid from your blood system, so that is why you have to make sure you are drinking lots and lots of water so there is water to pull from your blood system into your bowels.
this water is what will help start to move the bowels and get things moving again.
if you can't get this constipation to move, you can go to the hospital or emergency room and see a nurse there who can help give you IV fluids and help give you laxatives or enemas to help move your bowels as well.
does this information help?
let me know if you have questions.
it sounds like you are quite severely constipated.
you still have stool in there that needs to come out.
you will need to drink lots of water and continue to use the dulcolax and add on an oral laxative
to continue to push out the rest of the constipated stool in there.
you might be dehydrated
so your bowels are not pulling enough water into your bowels to move and push out all of the stool.
are you willing to drink more water and continue to use the dulcolax twice a day
and add on an oral laxative like miralax (polyethylene glycol)?
it can be a tough process if you are severely constipated.
it can take several days to get all of the stool out.
drinking more water, eating prunes, adding on an oral laxative can help.
yes, even with a suppository.
just a suppository sometimes is not enough.
does this help?
do you have other questions?
or you can go to the hospital and ask for help from one of the nurses there.
no, it just sounds like you are very very constipated.
I am sorry that the dulcolax wasn't able to fix the constipation completely
but you can continue to try tonight or early tomorrow.
with drinking more water, going to the drug store to get a laxative
and you can try another dulcolax in the morning as well.
and you can also try 1/2-1 cup of magnesium citrate to drink to help move your bowels as well
but you have to make sure you are drinking lots of water
this can happen if you are severely constipated.
you can use another dulcolax suppository and add a senna laxative or dulcolax laxative orally as well.
and make sure you drink more water.
you can also take colace 100mg which is a stool softener as well which could help.
Dulcolax Laxative contains bisacodyl
you should take the same suppository and add on something else as well
you should add on dulocolax laxative or a senna laxative
I am still here.
you can have some soreness.
but if you drink more water and use a stool softener that could help.
whatever one you have in your drug store or chemist store.
senna laxatives vary from country to country.
do you have any other questions?
no, it is not too severe
but you have to drink a lot of water.
are you drinking a lot of water?
you should drink 4-6 glasses of water per day. at least
the green tea has caffeine in it and is not as good as water
try to drink more fluids tomorrow.
well, it is not working to stimulate your bowels
when you use laxatives and suppositories you dont' want caffeine since it dehydrates you.
good luck to you
