Sure, sort of...: Each person with constipation needs to work with her doctor to figure out the cause and the solution. Otherwise if the constipation does not resolve, and the patient has to use something daily to move poop along, and happens to use MOM for that daily purpose, it will appear as though she is dependent on MOM. Some people use different meds on different days. Doctor has prescription meds too.
