Hi Oreo2016, yes its a problem at anytime - you must try changing your diet a bit but if all else fails my doctor gave me a very large bottle of Duphalac Lactulose solution. She said take it for a few days and clear yourself out when necessary. I sometimes have to resort to that, its very gentle. But, now I have started fermenting my own sourkraut and there is nothing like cabbage to sort you out!Hope this helps - Kandiepat

Sauerkraut is great for probiotics to maintain good gut bacteria. So is miso, kim chee, yogurt with live cultures & Kombucha. I brew my own kombucha & 💜 It.

Hi oreo2016,

I’ve been on Urso for 14 years and have had long term constipation. It took a long time for me to find out it could be related to the urso. I tried lactulose etc but couldn’t find the balance between no effect or too effective!! I started taking a daily probiotic this year and lo and behold, I am now regular again. So glad I found them. Maybe something to consider. Good luck!
