    It would be a good idea to consult a doctor. There could be a lot of reasons for constipation. Meanwhile, have you considered giving up the laxatives and eating a better diet, such as prunes and prune juice, also oatmeal, applesauce, and plenty of vegetables and liquids. You can become laxative dependent so should not continue using them.

    • Yeah, I’ve been doing that and it isn’t working
