I am on opaites for my TMJD and though I dont get constipated it is very hard to go like you said and you bust a vein in your head. I asked my Doc about this and told him I dont need something to make me go just something to stop the pain and strain when I do go. And he put me on Docusate Sodium 100mg one capsule 2 x a day. And believe me I am a new person it is a prescription stool softener. Ask your doc about it and give it a try it might help you. Good luck.
