... from fruit, as i do have a pear each night which helps but if i up my does then i am in trouble
I am diabetic, and also take 2- (or more) 50 mg Tramadol daily. Same problem with constipation, compounded by my high protein, very low carb diet. On my doctor's advice, I started taking an over-the-counter stool softener twice daily. That allowed a fairly normal bowel movement. After the first year I cut back to one softener daily. Now in year three, my digestion has adapted to my high-protein diet, no softener needed. Normal BM about every other day. I never took a laxative, afraid of the "uncertainty" factor! Hope this helps.
Hi, the best thing you can do is eat a high fiber diet. For breakfast, cereals like 'fruit and fiber' or 'bran flakes', etc. Brown/wholemeal bread instead of white. If you eat pasta, switch to the whole-wheat variety, and eat high fiber vegetables... the darker the colour of the vegetable, the higher fiber content generally. And eating fruit more than once a day won't do any harm
