clearlax
I've been using clearlax for more than 5 years daily. before that i used other pill laxatives,prune juice would work for awhile. Now I have stomac ulcers and I was wondering if long term use may be the cause. I certainly hope not, I really don't want to give up my clearlax. I never had gas or bloating from using it. Clearlax has never let me down.
