constipation, anyone know what helps

I've had problems with consitipation for many months.
I think it started when I started taking seroquel.

I use citrucel 3 times a day with very little difference.

I have a very high fiber diet amd drink gallons of water everyday.

When I do have a bowel movement it comes out as small pellets, sometimes just one small pellet. I never feel fully emptied out.

I feel very frustrated but the seroquel helps me a lot with my paranoia and fears so I can't stop taking it.

Re: constipation, anyone know what helps

To make your intestine function properly -- a person needs 25 to 35 grams of fiber daily. It needs to be a combination of both soluble fiber and insoluble fiber.
You also need to drink 6 to 8 glasses of water daily.

Pebble type stools is usually caused by not drinking enough fluids!
