To constipation sufferers, how do you prevent constipation?

Caution: If you never had a constipation, DO NOT answer this question. 

I had used a well known fiber powder but I developed painful stomach pains for at least several hours. I, even, vomited. I stopped using that.

    Eat foods with natural fibers, and increase your fiber intake gradually. If you suddenly introduce a load of fiber into your diet when you're not used to it, then it can give stomach issues.

    Also remember to drink plenty of fluids.

    On the advice of my doctor I use a combination of Miralax, Citrucel fiber supplement and Colace stool softener. He said that the problem with many fiber supplements was the gas and bloating they create. With Citrucel it has a different fiber that doesn't create a lot of gas. With this method you also need to drink plenty if water.

    .

    The excess gas the fiber power created probably is what caused your stomach pains. You may has also taken too much of it.
