Laxatives in Sclero Forums (MAIN) Posted January 28, 2007 · Report reply Hi Sakar, I'm sorry you are having such a rough time with this. Please check with your doctor about it. Generally the recommendation is to eliminate or cut down on laxatives if they are working too well. Chances are you don't need a remedy (laxatives) for a problem you don't have (constipation) -- especially since not everyone suffers the same side effects from medications. See our page on Bowel Involvement for an array of possible treatments. Many people are able to control issues with very careful management of diet and exercise. Eating just some oats in the morning is a starvation diet, which can have disastrous effects on your health. So please get in touch with your doctor and back on track soon, and let us know how things improve.
