HARD STOOLS: Need a bit more info sir age other health problems meds you are on, including over the counter depending on this info, the most appropriate approach based on the most plausible explanation can be undertaken. Otherwise , i'd just be guessing, just like you are right now. Please see your doctor and think about these questions beforehand. I am sure he'll wanna know.
