    Milk of Magnesia worked for me 3 tablespoons once a week. Plus some psyllium with my oatmeal in the morning.

    Try Miralax it brings water to stool and helps to go, you can adjust it as needed.

    Try ground Flax seed in each meal until you go. I would suggest a soup spoon at each meal.

    Increase your water intake.

    Don’t eat dairy.

    Try Coconut milk instead of whole milk.

    No cheese, breads/pasta. No soda, no white sugar.

    Lastly, one soup spoon of Castor Oil at bedtime.

    Hope this helps.

    I suffered from severe constipation for years, sometimes spending several hours on the stool. The problem was resolved when a doctor prescribed Armour thyroid. It seems that very few doctors are aware of this, which is unfortunate, but it changed my life.
