Hello. This is my first time to post here. I am usually on the back pain support board here on *****.
As to your question, Magnesium (vitamin) seems to help some people.
Another girl told me yesterday that she uses Vegatable Laxative, and she buys it in the Pharmacy Dept. at Walmart's. No prescription is needed and it is all natural.
It wouldn't hurt to try both of these to see if either one of thenm will help. I do not have a constipation problem, but If I did, I would buy both of these based on others positive comments about them.
Hope things will get better for you.
