Did I do the right thing? As written before mom thinks she is constipated but is not. Last night she had a mild laxative tea before bed time, but around 5AM this morning she got up and was going to take prune juice AND a suppository at the same time. I stopped her from taking both together pluse she had in her the laxative tea from the night before. She didn't believe me that she had a bowel movement the day before where he even showed it to me. Caused an argument but I couldn't let her do that to herself - laxative tea, prune juice and suppository all within a few hours. Did I do the right thing?

Good Lord sounds like u dodged a storm(in the most literal sense lol) put all laxatives up as I'm sure u don't want to be scrubbing poop out of the carpet,her clothes,the walls,etc and why is she so concerned about her bm? Like barb says maybe she needs meds.

Willy, why does your mom have access to prune juice and suppositories? Put them where she can't get them.

Have you asked her Dr.for anxiety meds?

I think so. It is best to go along with their misconceptions, but not if it could cause harm.
