Yes, I am constipated now a side effect of the pain medication. Prunes are su pposed to help so I have asked my daughter to get some prunes for me and I also read that figs are supposed to do the same.

Yes. I constantly go between C & D. Sometimes I forget to drink enough water and that causes a problem. I have very painful Roids so I try to keep hydrated and I usually eat prunes every day. I will also eat fruit and sometimes even drink fruit juices. But when all that is not enough, I will take Senecot laxitive with stool softener.

Apparently Magnesium is very good for regulating this but I do not have the money to buy any at this time. Hope you get relief soon.....

Take care. Medicines can be a B**** for this.

OK, personal question time... Do you ever get constipated and if so, what is your remedy?

Yes. I am now. Due to a side effect of my anti-depressant. I try to drink more water and eat more fiber, but if something doesn't happen soon I may need to turn to medication. But, I hate to do that!
