Laxative questions and answers
I have not gone to the bathroom (#2) for a week now and I've been eating a lot of things. Plus, I can become constipated a lot. I do not want to try a pill laxative, but I heard epsom salt works. Instead of buying that salt, will regular salt or sea salt work too? Or is there another homemade laxative I can make? Thank you! (I will not become constantly reliable on laxatives, believe me for that one!) What I would really like to know is instead of using epsom salt for a laxative, could I use regular salt or sea salt?
A: Try prunes or prune juice........................i have not heard of the salt thing. Stay away from white bread and cheese as these are clogging. good luck
so i just found out my friend, she has put a ex-lax laxative into my soda. it was clear but she just started laughing and i asked what and she told me. what do i do?? does it hurt?? why stay near the toilet?
A: It will give you a stomach ache and diarrhea. More importantly, if I were you I would reconsider if this girl is really your friend. It doesn't sound like she is. I would never do that to anyone, especially one of my friends. I wouldn't hang out with her anymore, there is no telling what she will do to you next time. What if she puts alcohol in your soda next time, or drugs and gets you in major trouble? *EDIT* I just read over your other questions, and it sounds like you are obsessed with your butt. Quit wasting our time with your stupid questions!!
Q: What is the difference between a laxative and a bowel cleanser?

Q: Is taking a laxative a good idea to help meet my weight requirements?
I went to my recruiter today and (after eating breakfast and drinking a good amount of water) and weighed 183. I have an appointment at MEPS Friday and my recruiter said i must weigh 181. He said I have to meet with him tomorrow morning to weigh in ( which i must be 181), I know that weighing someone after they eat or drink will add extra weight so to be on the safe side i was planning on taking some Magnesium citrate laxative liquid . Is that a good idea?
A: What will happen is you will sh*t your brains out then you won't qualify mentally. Have a great day.

Q: Is it okay to replace herbal laxative tea with green tea during the lemon diet?
I've been doing the lemon diet for 8 days, planning on completing 45 days, but I've been drinking green tea because I can't seem to find herbal laxative tea. Is this okay?
A: Hi, No green tea would not do the same thing. You are meant to have the laxative tea to produce regular bowel movements and improve detoxification. Whilst green tea is great for weight loss it is not what they are recommending for this diet. Try your local health shop and get a senna tea or dieter's tea (in the green pack). Even a supermarket should have some type of lax tea. Regards, Tanya P.S. How much weight have you lost so far?
Q: Is there a natural laxative, that will work like a real laxative like Dulcolax?

Q: What is a safe laxative tea to drink?
I read up on Senna that prolonged use can cause liver disfunction. I want to know what laxative can be used for a longer period of time? That tea contains senna. Is there any laxative that doesn't contain senna?
A: Try Yogi's "Get Regular" tea, it's less harsh than regular laxatives. It's true you shouldn't use laxatives for a prolonged period of time because you can become dependent on them, but using them occasionally won't do any damage.
Q: Whats the difference between taking castor oil and taking a laxative pill to induce labor?
Im overdue and someone said take castor oil to induce labor. Anyone try that? Also,why can;t I just take laxative pills to induce? Are they not the same? I cant have sex my hubby is deployed. m just in pain,swollen and Im ready to get this over with its so hard taking care of our little girls alone while this prego.
A: Sweetie, why would you do that anyway? Honestly don't be in such a rush, bub will come when it's suppose to. You taking foreign stuff like that may only put your baby at risk of health issues not to mention yourself! Try sex, that may help kick start labour or even going for a walk, preferable up a hill, that did it for me when I was induced. Walked up a flight of stairs and when I got back down to the bottom, first contraction hit really quick and strong, baby was then born 2 hrs 42 mins later. Please don't take castor oil or laxatives, they can be dangerous. Just be patient and baby will come on its own. Good luck and merry christmas

Can it be harmful to your insides? If not, what are the better ones to try. Or maybe something other than a laxative.
