: Since I've gone off the pills I've been retaining water, severly! It very uncomfortable, what can i do about this?
I am unsure why you would be retaining water except that bisacodyl aka dulcolax does deplete your electrolytes. Given this factor I would assume that your electrolytes were or are out of balance possibly. I would consider letting your doctor know about this so they can decide if it is something that needs to be checked into or not. In the meantime be sure to get plenty of potassium by eating an orange, banana, or tomatoe every day to keep your potassium in check. I wish I could offer more help but I am clueless on this one.
