I agree with Hopinso. As much as I like Dr. Schulze ' products, I don't agree with anyone taking laxatives without fiber. You need both, and most of the times, you need a much gentler laxative or you chance getting MORE IBS than before. Oftentimes all anyone needs as a laxative is a cup of warm water first thing in the morning, 1 tablespoon of olive oil 2-3 times daily, and perhaps some fennel tea or glass of prune juice or Triphala. That's it. So long as you're having one BM a day you shouldn't have to use the stronger herbal laxatives.
