Constipation: If you experienced a lot of diarrhea as part of the viral intestinal tract infection, it would not be unusual to skip bowel movements for a few days after such complete emptying of intestinal contents. Dulcolax is a potent laxative and can cause cramps. If you're having diarrhea, try to avoid taking meds to stop it. Instead avoid roughage in the diet;only drink room temperature fluids.?See MD
