Unable to have a BM without a suppository

I have IBS with constipation, have had for about 35 years. I had been using Miralax for many years. It worked okay. Sometimes I'd have to take 2 doses a day, but usually always produced results. Then I started having extended periods of constipation, so doc tried amatiza. I gave it a couple of weeks, and it produced no results. So then he tried linzess, and added dulcolax suppositories, and miralax at night. At first I was having runny stools with the Linzess in the mornings, but then that stopped. It is now to a point where I have to use a suppository in order to have a BM. Also have had nausea for several months, although don't know if that has anything to do with it. I have had such severe constipation in the past I've had to be hospitalized, but something was always found to fix the problem. This has been going on for over a week. I hate the idea that at age 45 my most basic functions are starting to fail me unless I use some form of intervention. Any suggestions?
