Re: Can Coffee and Orange Juice cause Constipation?

Nope, coffee doesn't constipate actually does just the opposite. A withdrawal symptom from caffeine is constipation...however, if you add milk, cream, or half/half and you are lactose intolerant, that could cause bloating.

I'm not sure about orange juice. I would highly doubt it however. It does have some fiber. Most fruit juices will cause diarrhea before constipation. When a child is sick with a stomach virus, the dr. advises against fruit juices due to the fact it makes diarrhea worse and can cause dehydration...

Drinking lots of water does help constipation.
Hope this helps!

Hi David,
Coffee and OJ usually have the effect of causing you to have BMs not constipation.

Re: Can Coffee and Orange Juice cause Constipation?

Hey, coffee constipates me!!! I gave it up about 2 months ago completely and I have to say, I'm feeling much better. I don't drink milk (i'm vegan) so I know it wasn't that. OJ can give you problems b/c it's a fruit juice and that does a number on your tummy. Drink the OJ after you've had your soluble fiber in the morning (or whenever you want the OJ) and you should be okay.

Feel Free to Respond!

Re: Can Coffee and Orange Juice cause Constipation?

orange juice does cause diahrea well if you drink quite a bit it does anyway.
this is due to the fact that a large intake of any soft fruit will cause diahrea
