Nothing more uncomfortable then being stuffed up.  As I get older, a good BM can be one of the highlights of my day.

My diet is pretty good but having some issues from time to time with constipation and needed a little help.  So, bought a box of this Donutt fiber.  The box and their website say it contains all natural ingredients including 2500 ml of Psyillium fiber.

Anyway,  2 days ago in the evening I gulped down a packet with a large glass of water. Woke up at my normal 6 am and about 15 minutes later wow, cleaned me out big time probably lost over 1 kilo.

I ate a lot that day so tried it again.  Same results an early morning total bowel evacuation!  Cleaned me out so good I was starving 30 minutes after.

Anyway, I prefer Metamucil but this stuff works great I thought.

Been using it for about three years, eventually it will have less effect. Lactulose sold as Hepalac here is another good remedy. Drinking a lot of water is something you need to do. Some days I have all bran, prunes, prune juice, fruit and veg and still get stuffed up

Apples are helpful but a couple of glasses of prune juice is great... will try your donutt too...

I always have 'Hotta Plus' Ginger tea with 4,000 mg of of fiber available for times like this. It works a treat. You can buy it from Big C and also is available from Lazada.

 

A step up from that is Fybogel, available in pharmacies, but I don't often have to resort to that 'big gun'.

Have been using this and seems to work quite well - appears to cheaper and they seem to be a reliable US source.  Get from Shopee for a little over 500 baht for 180x700mg

If needed, I always go for Milk of Magnesia.  A small bottle from the local pharmacy B35.

I liked it better when all we talked about was the toilet bowl sprayer...very effective and cleaner than a thumb swipe...😊

BKK6060, how much was your Donutt fiber?

About 70 baht for 3 at 7/11 box of 10 can be had for 199 on offer at pharmacies. It must be noted you can actually take too much physilium which will block you up more, which is why I prefer these measured doses. Friend in the UK did this and had to get suppositories to make her go.

When all else fails you can buy 10 baht enemas at 7/11, stick that solution up there and 2 minutes latter it works.
