Taking child off long term senna

Hi, my 9 boy had non-withholding constipation and has been on 17.5ml of Senna for the past 5 years. (As an aside I've just seen other posts and I wish someone had told me at the beginning of this journey to relax because its takes years and years for the bowels to mend. Find a dose that works and stop fighting to bring your child off early - it was Consultants at Great Ormond St who said this and I wish someone had told me early on!)... anyway.. now to bring my boy off and I can't find a useful programme to do it. We'll try reducing gradually but I'd love to know anyone else's experience.

Hi JaneA3, thank you for your post and great advice. How is your sons constipation at present, is he managing well on his 17.5ml of Senna? I just wondered if there was any reason why you wanted to bring him off his medication at present? Natalie@ERIC
