i will only use ES on my flushing days and on extreme emergencies! i learned my lesson though..if i am really really constipated, Oxypowder and lemon wedge clears me up in about an hour..something about the lemon wedge makes me really crap.And NEVER NEVER EVER EVER in your life take a bulking fiber and then take something like ES,because from what i understand the ES pulls water into the intesitines and flushes them out or something- i guess with the fibers in place it acted like a sponge and just ballooned in my colon and absorbed all the water!imagine a sponge inside you colon and then pouring water into it til it expands soo much ..it becomes lodged in there!!!!! ouch, not good at all! it felts as if i had 50 lbs in my gut the entire night
i took it because i 'thought' i could wait it out and i remember metamucil always absorbs everything in it's path and pushes it all out the next day..unfortunantly i could'nt wait until the next day and 2-3 hours later i took the ES..the rest is history..more like a horror story
oh well, it took effect yesterday and tonight and it completly flushed everything out! PS, no more hard boiled eggs!!! i had like 5 of them after a workout!
