  • See if your doctor can give you anything. If you are not suppose to be off the medicine then don't get off it until you are told you can.

  • Try fiber bars, acidophilis, and kefir. I have to take meds and sometimes will go way over a week without a bm and these will help. Kefir is like yogurt you drink only even healthier. You can get it at healthy grocery stores in the milk section. It tastes good and even kids like it.

  • Try adjusting your diet: no meat, no dairy, lots of water, no white/simple grains, lots of whole grains, vegetables, fruits and legumes.
