Why???: If your problem is severe constipation, other solutions are better, such as bulk agents (fiber), stool softeners, more fluid intake, etc. Otherwise, there is no benefit and you may be avoiding evaluation by your doctor for another problem or issue that needs to be checked. See your doctor rather than use fleets 3x per week!
