Ducosate helps from time to time.
I tried doing what the doctors said with over the counter fiber and prunes but it still doesn't help. I heard people take milk of magnesia but I don't know if it is something that you can only take a short time or not. My doc said to use what i could find over the counter, but there are so many that you can't use regularly and I need regular daily treatments.Anyone find something over the counter that works?

magnesium supplements are good. Just don't take too much of them. The max for general consumption is around 400mg a day.If that is providing you with results that is a fairly low dose of drugs.I'm not sure why doctors don't recommend basic magnesium supplements as a first line therapy.
Thank you guys.I find that one servings worth of milk of magnesia does help get some things going. I also found that magnesium pills work for some reason.
