: What is ok for constipation? I used to use senna, but they are not ok at all now
: Is psyllium ok?
: much thanks
You can try warm milk for the insomnia. As for the consitpation this sounds like you have had problems with this before the pregnancy. What was determined to be the cause of your consiptation then. Laxatives should only be used as a tempory for "fix" for occaional constipation. Every effert should be made to find the cause of the constipation and take care of that. I would recommend drinking prune juice and eating prunes at this time as well as increasing your fiber in your diet. As for the psyllium, call your clinic and talk to your doctors nurse and have her check with the doctor on this as each doctor treats his patients differently. Good Luck
