    I take Alka-sletzer and acetaminophen (Tylenol) for pain and eat fruit, natural grain bread and lectuce. When I want to get a dump going I include from one to two tablespoons of cut flax seed in my food and I'll generally go in less than a day and have a nice, matural seeming dump.

    Been hitting the Pinball and Solitaire too much so gotta go get my fizz and Tylenol.

    Plop, plop, fizz, fizz.

      Ok, first of all, eww. Second, whenever I have to make myself "go", I eat Selects Great Grains cereal, works everytime. Third, All that tylenol is no good. But I suppose you know that already. Tiff

          I take 120mg of Morphine Sulphate and find it better than Oxycontin, Methadone etc.
          i think that is the same as miralax in the usa. miralx just became available here over the counter, before now it was prescription only. i just got a flyer from costco they will be carrying it.
          jonnyc how does morphine sulfate compare to Oxycontin as far as making you feel? Oxycontin i feel ok on , except at night i cant sleep and lunesta doesn't punch through it. i need to take amitriptyline to help with sleep, since i really don't want to take a stronger sleep med if i can avoid it.
          how did you compare the oxycontin to morphine sulfate as far as constipation? oxycodone constipated the hell out of me, but Oxycontin doesn't seem to. just looking for other people experiences. i take lyrica too, it really speeds up the motility of my bowels, so that may off set the oxycontin.

            I've never taken oxy's but the vidocin and percocet, always kept me awake and made me sleep way too long. I lost all my ambition, it was not good. The MS, does the trick, I can sleep, I don't sleep all day, and no constipation. It's really great. Tiff

              I wasn't on Oxycontin that long but MS makes me feel fine all day. I feel a bit groggy in the morning till it kicks in and then my mood changes for the better. As for sleep, I sleep well on it. Its when I don't take it I struggle a little to sleep. I also don't suffer at all with constipation on MS and if I did I'd take movicol.
