When the effect will stop (peg3350)?

Postby Laurieb » 22 Oct 2017, 10:56

I've been on and off Lax a day since about 7 months, and already had a LIS in june. However, I'm healing slowly and just discovered that the pain is linked to my bm to be too softs.

For the last 10 days I only took 2 doses of Lax a day, 1 complete, and 3 days after 1/2, but it's like I didn't stop, the consistency is the same, and it continues to burn right after :(

I eat healthy, but not necesseraly high fiber. My nutritionist told me I need to privilege soluble vs insoluble fibers.

For those who stopped the Peg 3350 laxatives, how long did it took you to have normal consistency bm again?

If I'm off it for 2-3 days then the extra firm BMs come back. I need to stay in it because of medications that I take which cause some constipation.
8/16-12/16: Fissure due to antibiotics
5/17: Botox to sphincter, fissure healed
9/19: Trigger point injections and pudendal nerve block
11/19: Botox to pelvic floor
8/20: Botox to pelvic floor in new location.
Currently in pelvic physical therapy

It took 3 - 4 days for the PEG to work on me and the same amount of time for it to stop working when I stopped taking it. I was only taking a 1/4 dose a day for the last week of use though, so you may need to cut the dose further, before it stops making your stool too soft. Good luck.
