This is a tough one, especially if his body is getting used to the lax. Is the upset only (sorry, but we must talk shop!) in the lower intestine (bowels), or is his stomach hurting too?
Anti-B's can be hard on the lining of the tummy, in which case you can use an antacid. But if the Anti-B's are causing him to need the toilet more, surely it would not hurt to even cut the sachet in half to try and see if that helps?
Thanks for reply benrese. No its lower gut he says his stomach is OK. Instinct says don't stop the laxido but I,m dithering between reducing it or giving it to him every other day. One of those things you just have to learn from experience!
Laxido and antibiotics - how well I remember that little concoction with my dear husband - I would leave off the laxido for a day or two and if your husband becomes constipated again try giving half a sachet of laxido. That is what the RN's recommended at the Nursing Home. It was a bit trial and error but nothing is lost by leaving off the Laxido for a while - it is really only putting fibrous matter into the system.
Good luck - there is nothing worse than a man with a gippy tummy!
