    Having looked this up on the NHS site, this seems to be a compoosite of the two laxative 'technologies' - i.e.  'bulking' and 'stimulant'.  In my opinion, you don't want to use such a composite, because 'bulking' if it works should be daily, wheras continuous/daily stimulant laxative use might alter the gut more significantly. 

    If both types of laxative are needed, then it must be best to keep them separate - because of the incompatibility of their frequency of use, yes?

    All imho, of course!

    Cheers,

    Pete.

      Thanks Pete, that was my concern...not sure why you would put both together for long term use......will go back and ask more questions before making a decision.

    Thanks, Helen.  Good to have some new input.  Never heard of it but, as a very lo

    ng, long time sufferer I await opinion on use with baited breath.

    Pete has ( as far as I am concerned) offered some good (if controversial among some of the forum community) novel, advice.  He's worth paying ataetion to.  Keep us informed and good luck!  Jon
