Run down to your local pharmacy and grab something called stool softener, I have used Surfak on occasion and it can be gotten in a generic now. Its not as explosive (if you know what I mean) as a laxative. BUT be careful about taking such things often because it can ruin your bowel tone and gloss over this proble when it could be a sign of a larger issue.

Default Fiber!

Ad plenty of Fruits & Veggies to every meal! Prunes! Lots of water. Exercise, all that should help. If not see a doctor.

Definitely add fruits, veggies and grains to your diet. Also nuts and seeds. Preferably the raw unsalted kind.

Default Supositories

You can get over the counter glycerin supositories. That is usually a more quicker method of relief. You do not need a prescription for em. YOu could also warm up some prune juice and be sitting in a hot bath while you drink it,but be ready to get to the toilet quickly. IS this an ongoing problem? IF so you should see your doctor if possible. You should always try to drink 2 quarts of water daily for your whole body. But that is one thing that will help big time. Do you take meds that do this to you? You can eat more bran and fiber (didn't say ya had ta like it) and or take over the counter stool softeners twice a day. Hope this helps. LIVE LAUGH AND LOVE

Milk of Magnesia- available at any pharmacy

Do not leave the house after taking it.

You could also try prunes.

I know a number of people who have went to the doctor for just this and they paid for a office visit just to be told to eat shredded wheat every morning.. (I use for snacks)

You need to ad more roughage to your diet, greens, beans, fruit, vegetables, you can buy fiber pills to take daily, Citrucel, metimucel, nuts, prunes etc..

All which will give you more gas but you can then get something for that, Beno, Gas X or something like that.
