A member asked:

Can you get constipated from switching from laxative to laxative? i couldn't poop for one day, so i took senna laxatives for two days, took prune juice for three days, still couldn't poop and now i'm trying to take magnesium citrate on my fourth day?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Fiber and water: You may take a fiber laxative like Metamucil and drink enough water daily so that your urine is colorless. For the long term you may try to increase your intake of fiber foods.
