I take a generic peri colace 3 tabs every night as a stool softener and this helps keep me regular. When it doesnt I take Miralax. Be sure you are drinking a lot of water and eating a high fiber diet. Sometimes I will eat a high fiber cereal like bran flakes and that is sufficient to get me going. I try to get a bit of exercise every day too. Sometimes an enema can work too-just a Fleet enema from the drug store-use as directed.
I could really get constipated if I didn't take colace and sennoside every night. The colace softens your stool and the sennoside help you go. My meds constipate me real easy. You could try prunes or prune juice that works well some time. Make sure you dring alot of water and exercise helps. Zoo baby has great suggestions. smiley happy
