Safe laxative


Recommended Posts

I have been taking Miralax and ionic magnesium liquid for withdrawal constipation but, reading elsewhere in the forum, it seems both Miralax (PEG) and mineral oil are neurotoxins. This kind of scared me. Anyone have problems with psyllium?


So I need your opinions on the best, safe laxative. 



#2 acetaminophen with codeine 2003 - present

Daily clonazepam 2005 - 2010

9 month taper, very rough

90% recovery 2012 to present

2nd Pfizer vaccine 5/1/21 - Triggered withdrawal symptoms

Nortriptilyne 25mg 9/3/2021 - 9/14/2021 for nerve pain, skipped 4 days
