- every morning I take my first levodopa of the day, and at a variable time after eat breakfast;
- every second day I give myself an enema, perhaps 30 minutes after eating breakfast;
- wait perhaps 5 minutes, give a slight strain, and out it comes.

I chose kefir to get rid of the taste of macrogel, which was stopping me from taking it. But, it has been mentioned in its own right by Bergamotte in an earlier post in this thread as a way to reduce constipation.

John,

I am so happy to hear you found something that works so well after all that you have been through- what a relief !

Kind regards,
MD
