    Before I changed my diet, I had tried pretty much every laxative on the market. Miralax was probably the best for me because it didn't cause any nausea, bloating, or diarrhea. When I was really backed up I'd use a Dulcolax suppository....not fun but it works fast. I have been hospitalized for severe constipation, so a suppository was the least of my worries. Are you taking any fiber? I went off gluten, increased my water intake, eat alot of fruits/veggies, and now I am never constipated. Sometimes it goes the opposite way, but not often. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!

    Try taking Miralax, you can adjust it as needed, this brings water to stool.

    Hi Lisa, I can recommend Fybogel or Laxido, which softens the bowel movements. You want a medication with ispaghula husk in it. Try it or chocolate or alcohol, whatever your get out happy drug is!

    I tried lots of fruit.  Prune juice and oranges helpd me. I tried Movicol for a few days. It did work but slowly. Then I had to stop it because it made my stools far too loose.
