High fiber food: Eat high fiber foods and drink plenty of water. Recommended buy Metamucil at the pharmacy since it is OTC and well tolerated than other strong laxatives . Metamucil is a fiber supplement you can buy as powder form and mix with water. If you do not wish to take Metamucil, you can always try keeping hydrated and exercise. Narcotics cause constipation and a gentler laxative like Metamucil helps.
