Anyone have trouble with this and found a good solution? I get enough fiber everyday but often have to resort to laxatives, which sometimes don't work either. The medication i am on, tramadol, also makes it 10x worse.
Try drinking aloe vera juice. Its so good and very healthy for your digestive system :)
Some medications will make you constipated even with drinking lots of water and fiber i suggest talking to your doctor ask about switching meds
Like Troy mention, aloe concentrate works wonders. I personally use Herbal Aloe Concentrate by Herbalife. Plus, keeping yourself hydrated reduces constipation.
I believe in natural remedies before taking anything manufactured, but of course that's just me. So i would suggest fluids-a key when taking any sort of medication-and try high fiber foods that are easily digestive like fruit (plums, prunes, etc). Coffee can be helpful as well ;p
Obviously if you've tried everything you could, you can take suppositories but be warned, my friend who had this same problem says it's like a bomb going off lmao
It may also depend on the kind of fiber? I Don't know but it can't hurt to switch it up. I had these bran flakes that seemed so healthy (tasted like delicious cardboard so it's gotta be healthy right?) But I swear that stuff locked me right up. More fresh veggies, brown rice works great for me... Good luck
Drink lots of water
Atleast take two cups of green tea daily..take care
sista, MIRALAX. Thats the best ever. pain meds cause constipation and it sucks. 1 tbs in coffee or juice in a.m. results 3-4 days max. continue every other day afterward
