    I don't know if senokot's okay but lactulose is and so is fybogel (although that stuff is evil and makes me retch)

    Prunes and dried apricots help to get things moving. A cup of coffee always helps me!

    I'm not sure senekot is recommended... i remember reading something about it causing alot of cramping of your bowel and that's not necessarily a good thing

    dried fruit and seeds are fab. i found linseed and soya toast every morning works a treat... it's the linseeds apparently...

    I thought you couldn't take senokot but am not 100% sure.

    I found that fizzy drinks and letting my tummy get completly empty made it worse. I had quite bad trapped wind and you can take windeeze (these worked for me) or gaviscon (if is turns to indigestion) - both are safe - I checked with pharmacy (even tho is says on packet but I didn't see that till later lol).
