I have been constipated pretty much 1 full year , due to what the doctors say is caused from methadone , which i take as perscription 40 mls daily.I am miserably bloated and full of gas and my doctor keeps saying im packed aswell as i am loosing weight , low energy and lower stomach pains across middle stomach aswell as feeling sluggish and nauseated , all my doctor says is use enemas and drink gallons of go lytely .... could anyone give me suggestions on how to get my bowels working again yours sincerely

hi buddy, I am sorry to hear you are feeling so bad. I get constipated often here it seems.
I dont know if you have tried a Fleet glycerin suppository yet....they are very mild and it works for me here
They are much easier to use than the enema.
Drop me a line here, let me know if this helps.
Talk to you soon buddy,
Matt

Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  I really recommend against using enemas on a daily basis.  Have you tried other laxatives?  Sometimes you need to try different laxatives until you find one that works.  Have you seen a gastroenterologist or just your regular doctor?

First I would recommend finding a different GP.  Then ask for a referral to a gastroenterologist.  I would recommend trying miralax or milk of magnesia or magnesium citrate when it is really bad to see if those help.
