she gets constipated about every three days
There are cheaper ways to manage constipation in the elderly. Does she take something like peri colace every night. Does she drink allot of water. Does she get fiber. Miralax every night can help. A dulcolax suppository every 2 or 3 days can help. You have to just try things to help her. If one thing doesn't work, try something else.
Often times the elderly get constipated purely because they don't drink alot of water because they don't want to have to go pee. And of course, resonably, they don't get much exercise. If you've tried everything, to answer your question, yes it can be used in the elderly.
