    AD + Bowel Care

    Ive been reading up on different suppositories considering if I'm paying that type of money I need the best product out there.

    I dread bowel days, the only thing barable about it is if I can sleep thru it. Even when I get that comfort I wake up soaked in sweat. Is this caused by the movement itself + my magic bullets adding to the AD or is it to be expected and no avoiding it?

    I've read here at CC that the MB can cause AD in some people.

      The Magic Bullet, like any irritant can cause ad. It is probably contributing to the ad that you experience with your bowel program. Is this new or did it occur in rehab? Does you physician know that you are having this problem on a routine basis? Experiencing ad as often as you are is not healthy and there are things that can be done to alleviate it (at least most of the time).

          In rehab they had me using a numbing agent like benzocaine w/ the lube...LOTS of lube. I always got AD from the ol' bowel program, especially MB's always made me sick w/ AD. Probably the most important thing is to not get constipated, lots of water and fiber. If you think you might have a rectal fissure, bad hemorrhoids or something I know a great colo-rectal specialist in okc. The combo of a fissure or hemorrhoids w/ MB is excruciating pain.

                Honestly I have entertained the thought and read a little about it. Would be another huge decision and another bag...

                    Have you tried not using the MB? My life got better when I stopped using them or anything. There is a prescription creme to numb things as well.

                      I use to use Ducolax, same thing. Coming from you fuente you must have some insight that I'm yet to come across. Maybe I need to be looking into this more, I think I came across something that said weight/size was an issue and quit lookin into it...

                        You could try instilling lidocaine cream/ointment into the rectum prior to doing the bowel program. Wait 5 minutes then start with the suppository. That should help to decrease the ad.

                            My thoughts exactly and thought I'd entertain it because it is reversible, afterwords I wish I had gotten one years ago. It's been great for me, frees up my shower time by 1.5hrs!
