You describe inappropriate laxative use despite being underweight, which may be due to eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. These disorders are not uncommonly co-morbid with depression and personality disorders.
Laxative abuse and excessive weight loss can cause sudden death, seizures, and cardiac disease.
I urge you to discuss your concerns further with your treating physician/psychiatrist.
Yes, there are both short term and long term effects from taking laxitives. You can make yourself dead, and failing that, get to the point that you can no longer poop without them. A 5'6" woman with and average build should weigh somewhere between 120 and 140 pounds. You ought to seek out some assistance from a mental health professional who has experience in treating eating disorders. Your body will start canabalizing its own heart and other organs for the energy to keep going if you don't start giving it the nutrition it needs to live.
i have a weight problem. i am over weight and i want to lose some weight fast. i have tryed to take diet pills, but they don't work because they smell really bad and i couldn't swallow they. i have tried to be bolimic, but i couldn't puke. i mean, i like took a tooth brush and pushed it to the back of my throat and i couldn't puke. i was anorexic for 12 days strait. then i was hungry. exercizing doesn't work either. please help me before i kill my self be taking too many laxatives. thanks
I just wanted to let you know that my heart really goes out for you. I too have suffered from the 2 eating disorders myself. I got up to taking 100 laxatives per day. I am now laxative free, due to years of therapy, and the right meds of course. It does take time, but there is still a lot of hope, and you can recover. I just wanted to give you some inspiration, at a time where you feel like there is none.
