See a doc : There are Rx Meds with FDA indication for IBS-constipation such as Amitiza. Natural laxative foods include summer fruits like cherries, blue berries, peaches, plums, nectarines, and dried fruits like prunes, dates, figs, apricots, but all these may cramp as they contain senna. Miralax (generic PEG) is also very good for maintaining moisture in the gut, and doesn’t cramp. Good luck
