No other disease?: Each person with constipation needs to be sure there is no other disease causing it. If constipation is just due to slow movement of the food and poop through the gut, then the things to try are vegetables, water, prune juice, prunes, fiber with water, Miralax (polyethylene glycol), Senokot or other senna, milk of magnesia, or other laxatives. If worried, one's primary care doctor can evaluate.
