I need to have a bowel movement haven't gone in 4 days I need relief please let me know what I can do
Do you have a usual back up method for constipation? If it's a suppository, do that. If it's a gentle laxative, do that. Some people take Benefiber, a white powder you can buy in a generic form or the name brand if you prefer. I don't know if you can get suppositories OTC. You can always ask the pharmacist at the drug store for advice or call your Dr. I can recommend Dulcolax, 2 tablets, as a gentle laxative. All take overnight to work.
But what works for one person may act differently for you. We're all different in how we react to drugs and medicines. Why not consult with your pharmacist at the drug store and then buy what you need? That seems the simplest and easiest. They have a quiet way to talk to you without everyone hearing your conversation.
