  • I agree you have become addicted to the laxatives. Try backing off of them slowly (sudden isn't the best idea), and cut it out over time, like a week or two. I'm guessing you added a ton of fiber very suddenly to your diet, which can stop you right up. You have to go slowly with something like fiber, or you can get constipated. You might even back off of the fiber a little, just to try to reset your system, then slowly bring it back. Keep drinking plenty of water. Good luck!

  • You might want to see a doctor. Sometimes stool softners just aren't enough. They can either prescribe you something and also help you out with your diet.

  • Well, you may be creating a dependency to the laxatives. Have you tried a Fleet enema? I would stop the laxatives immediately.
