    Try increasing your fiber intake before you go to medications. There are several things, like bran cereal, oatmeal that can help.

    You may have to get something like Fiber-con or Benafiber. If you start taking something like ex lax or dulcolax, your body may become dependent on those medications.

    Put Benefiber or Fibersure in food or non-carbonated beverages three times a day. It is tasteless and does not thicken. Increase your water intake and get some exercise!
