Ive always had: success with Milk of Magnesia.Take a capful every 8 hours until u go.If you don't go after 3 doses,go to the ER.You may have become resistant to laxatives.Plan to see Gastroenterology for help with your chronic constipation.Once u do go,get on daily Miralax (polyethylene glycol) and a high fiber diet.Stop all stimulant laxatives.
