she has always been constipated she also has a mild mental disabilaty nothing helps her constipation for long.
first of all you need to have a talk with your doctor and be sure he feels this is something that is safe for her to use, on the box directions here is what is said Adults and children 12 years and over take 1-3 tablets (usually 2 tablets daily)
Children 6 to under 12 years take 1 tablet daily
children under 6 years- ask a doctor
so according to this it would be 1 tablet daily but just to be sure ask the doctor, also ask him how long this medication can be given.
you might ask him about Senokot-S chilren 6 to uner 12 years of age can take up 2 tablets daily, this is a softener and I use this and it works well, but since she has special needs then you need to discuss this with your doctor
