URGENT HELP NEEDED- constipation prblms
Hi there

Ive been having constipation problems for years now, ive been twice this year to the hospital. Ive done everything the doctor insisted me to do, he also gave me duphalac to take for a month and a half but now that im off the medication im having constipation problems all over again.

I drink lots of water daily im slim, i really dont know what else to do!
Taking duphalac is that good for a person? Because if i cant use the toilet on my own i use duphalac that helps like a bomb!

I sincerly hope you can give me constructive advice

Dear Missy
Duphalac is safe to use longterm as it only softens the stool and does not irritate the bowel. Get yourself another bottle!
