Does anyone know if there are any problems with taking Colace S/S long term during pregnancy? A few weeks ago a Dr I saw suggested taking that and Metimucil for my chronic constipation. I'm just wonder how long is it ok to take it and I won't be back to see the Dr for a few weeks. I'm still constipated, but there's not as much pushing.
I eat steel cut oats every morning, practically no processesed carbs (only whole grains), a good amt of meat and some fruit/vegetables. I'm on a low glycemic diet, so I can't eat dried prunes. I drink lots of water, but the Dr said that didn't matter.
Ahhh, constipation, just one of the not so glamorous stuff, pregnancy offers.
Colace is in the safe list for constipation. I take a prenatal vitamin that comes with a stool softener. Still, I dont go regularly and constipate when I do. Drinking too much water also causes my stomach to excrete more gastric juices hence, my heartburn
