U.K. Research On Laxatives

U.K. Research On Laxatives

I just heard that there was a recent study in the UK on the effects of laxatives and PD. From what I heard if you take laxatives to control your constipation your PD rigidly lessons and my even stop it's progression. Also if you take antibiotics yourPD rigidity becomes worse. Anyone have information on this study?

i hate to keep repeating myself, ad nauseum, but try a food change. hey it cannot hurt, if it doesnt work you can always go back. after years of constipation, it is gone...
