Question Spriva, Advair, Albuterol and constipation

Siince being on Spriva in a.m., Advair (2 times a day), Albuterol nebulizer occasionally, I've had constipation. I've read somewhere that these meds can cause constipation and wonder if anybody can recommend a safe OCT remedy. I'm sick of prune juice and prunes. I've tried Dulcolax stool softeners and they don't seem to do much. I've also just completed 4 weeks of Prilosec for heartburn and also read that these meds cause heartburn also. Any suggestions?

Apples would be a natural remedy.

As far as the heartburn, I wasn't able to find a solution, so I wound up switching to Flovent. It's not quite as good at controlling my asthma, but I have a lot less reflux now.

Re: Spriva, Advair, Albuterol and constipation

It's not the albuterol, but it's probably the Advair. Spiriva has no steroids so I've narrowed it down to Advair. I haven't used my albuterol yet.
