what can you suggest for constipation btought on by oxycontin
16 Jun 2012
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.

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!)
