This is very dangerous and can lead to renal failure, dehydration, and electrolyte imbalance. If you think that you may be addicted to laxatives, this blog post will give you some signs that it may be time for a visit with your doctor!
– You have excessive bloating after eating or drinking alcohol.
– Your stomach feels upset after taking something like milk or yogurt without any other symptoms (like diarrhea).
– You’re using lots of antihistamines because they make your intestines move too much – but only if you already know about them beforehand.
If these are all familiar scenarios for you , it may be time to talk with your doctor about whether you are addicted to laxatives.
