What are some strategies/medicines have sufferers used to alleviate constipation?
Stool softeners (such as those containing docusate sodium) may help. Additionally, bulk laxatives such as psyllium may help add fluid and bulk to the stool and may be safely taken on a regular basis if need be.
See your pharmacist for advice.
Suppositories or gentle laxatives, such as milk of magnesia liquid, may establish regular bowel movements. Enemas or laxatives should be reserved for severe cases only. These methods should be used only if fiber, fluids, and stool softeners do not provide enough relief.
Avoiding constipation altogether is easier than treating it.
Things you can do to help prevent constipation include:
Eat lots of fiber.
Drink plenty of fluids each day (at least 8 glasses of water per day).
Go to the bathroom when you have the urge. Don't wait.
