I've found that most OTC fiber supplements don't do much for me. Stimulant laxatives like senna cause terrible cramping and pain. And I already eat plenty of fiber. I feel like I'm nearing the end of my options! wacko.png


Any suggestions for constipation remedies that work?

Have you tried osmotic laxatives like miralax? They work for a lot of people and do not usually have the crampy and painful side effects of stimulants. Failing that, you might want to consult with a surgeon about colon-shortening surgery.

Working out for at least 30 minutes a day or most days have been helping me eliminate more and I just started working out recently. It has to be cardio like really brisk walking or jogging etc. Also 3 tbsp. of coconut oil.
