"Laxatives
Pills or liquid, herbal or otherwise, laxative abuse is a common form of "weight control" in people suffering with Eating Disorders. The use of laxatives as a way to lose or control weight is not only dangerous, but irrational. The actual purpose of taking a laxative is to stimulate the large bowel to empty, which occurs only after the food and it's calories for energy have been absorbed through the small intestines. Essentially, a person taking laxatives to control weight is only going to cause their body to lose fluid, which can potentionally be followed by periods of water retention and an appearance of bloating (causing the sufferer to want to lose more weight and ingest more laxatives). The reason people suffering from eating disorders seem to lose weight while taking laxatives is because in most cases they are increasingly watching calorie intake and restricting food consumption, inducing vomiting, and/or compulsively exercising.
Continued laxative use can cause bloating, cramping, dehydration, electrolyte disturbances and imbalances, cardiac arrhythmias, irregular heart beat and heart attack, renal problems, and death.
Phenolphthalein, a popular ingredient previously found in many brands of laxatives has now been recalled by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration, United States) due to studies indicating that it has been linked to cancer.
Withdrawal symptoms can be expected in stopping the use of laxatives after a continued period of using them as a "weight loss" method. These include, abdominal cramping, mild to severe constipation, bloating, mood swings and general feelings of fatigue and "feeling sick." In less severe cases the symptoms will usually subside in about 2 weeks, but in cases where a person have ingested handfuls or more laxatives on a regular basis, it may take longer and require medical assistance." <http://www.something-fishy.org/dangers/methods.php>

take care lovie

yeh... nasty nasty very dangerous effects.... please ... if you haven't already... dont start... i so regret it. I'm completely addicted to them, utterly ashamed of it and it's groce. Have been on them for large parts of the past.. year and a half (being in hosp stopped me cos didn't have anyway of getting them!!) Causes serious bowel damage, can cause paralysis of the bowel, severe electrolyte imbalances, which can cause heart attacks.
I never thought of myself as a drug addict... i've never even tried anything illegal!! guess i'm just addicted to legal drugs... but yeh. It's nasty.

EVIL that is the one word I would use to describe laxatives!

I was not a heavy user of laxatives but I did abuse them on and off for a couple of years.

I havent touched them in 5 years and the last time I properly abused them was nearer ten years ago yet I still have ill effects from them. I suffer from IBS - getting agonising stomach cramps, constipation and so on and it is likely that I will have it for the rest of my life.

Stay well clear of them

the cramps and pain u go thru with laxatives is not worth it.
its no fun having to stay in cuz ur scare in case u cant get to the toilet fast enough when out.
the smell is rrevolting.
worst of all is when u lose control of your bowels.
u may wake up covered in your own excretion.
u may not make it to the toilet in time.
pass some wind and u could be embarrassed for life when ur bowels relax and let diahorrea run at the same time/

laxatives seem a great idea....they are not .



Some days are still hard but they make the good days seem all the better :)
