what can you suggest for constipation btought on by oxycontin
22 Jun 2012
I'd try eating probiotic yogurt (something like Activa or cheap equivalent)? Also, 4 colace at bedtime will help move things so don't have to strain as much, and as other user mentioned, Mirilax is great! (You put a couple TBSP in any beverage of choice&stir, stir, stir until don't see anymore particles&drink up... its so tasteless, I even use it in water!) Also eating prunes and cut breads/starches out of diet as much as possible..
Good luck! (I live with this problem daily, so I literally feel your pain!)

There are as many answers for you as there are members to this site I think. I personally drink alot of water, take fiber, and I take peri colace capsules nightly. There is a mixture that I've seen work wonders, but I haven't tried it myself yet, its equal parts of miller's bran, prune juice and apple sauce, you can mix a container full and put it in the frig and eat some every day. We used to put 2 Tbsp in our patients cereal every morning. What you need is fiber and something to moisten and soften the stool when the constipation is caused by medication.
