I have been on natural source laxative and stool softner for approx. 8 years now. I have been taking them daily first ranging from 1-2/day to now 6-7 per/day. I had tried last year to quite cold turkey but I had extreme pain after a few days of no BM. I also tried weening off, but it didn't seem to work well. My doctor doesn't seem to care about helping or suggesting how to ween off, being that my body has been addicted for 8yrs. I'm not quite sure how to ween off. Any suggestions or feedback would be greatly appreciated.:)
