  • I take Miralax with Citrucel daily. I also think Phillips' Laxative Daily Supplement is good occasionally for a good, fast overnight cleanout. I've got irritable bowel, so unfortunately, I need to use all three at times to relieve my constipation problems.

  • I drink Crystal Light hunger control with protien and fiber. It's strawberry-banana flavor and comes in individual drink mix packs. Tastes great and one a day helps my poos. I've been constipated after the appendectomy and started drinking about 2 a day since tuesday and am pooping normal now. Cut back to one today and still good. It doesn't give cramps, or diharea (sp?).

  • if your constipation is related to the heat, that means that you are dehydrated! drink more water! that will help you the most.

  • High fiber foods such as sweet potato, kale, spinach, whole grains and LOTS of water. Limit refined sugars and dairy products. Works for me. :)

  • I'm a fan of prunes and water! I just have to be careful not to eat the entire box!
