  • it's supposed to do the opposite. Fruits & veggies are mainly water & fiber...and some sugar depending on the fruit.

    If anything, eating too many fruits & veggies would give you the runs. BUT, if there is any medication being taken, or if there is an issue with your stomach or digestive tract, then there could be other reasons why you are constipated.

  • Not sure about some drugs.... but for allergies, it sounds as though you are over medicated..... and if your allergies are that problematic, you should see an allergist and look into getting injections.

    As far as veggies - IF they are ones high in fiber, make sure you are drinking plenty of water with them.... if not it could lead to harder bowel movements and some bloating and or gas

  • it's most likely the meds you are taking...

    keep eating lots of veggies, eat yogurt & drink TONS of water. If that doesn't help...i'd go talk to a Dr.

  • some of the allergy medicine I am on is only for emergencies and I don't take them on a daily basis

  • Having to much fiber will make you constipated and hurt when you go... You need to balance fibers with carbs. For ever so many carbs you eat you eat so much fiber. I think it if you eat 2 carbs your suppose to balance that with 1 fiber... That being an example. You can look it up online though.
    Hope that helps!
