A member asked:

Constipated for 2 wks. i took miralax & colace for 3 days, but neither helped. i've been drinking prune juice & eating high fiber foods. i've gone a little, but i'm still constipated. my k level is 3.2. what can i do at this point? (best options?)

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Enema/water: At this point I suggest that you try a Fleet's enema which you can buy at the pharmacy. Continue the miralax (polyethylene glycol) nightly. The colace is not likely to help much but adding a fiber supplement, walking daily for at least 30 minutes and drinking at least 3 liters of water daily could also help. If this does not work then you may need to see a doctor for a medical intervention.
