Can Prune Juice Cause Constipation
Would you consider glycerin suppositories safer for me then prune juice for constipation since prune juice causes excessive Diarreah?
Constipation care: The best way to manage constipation is with a daily regimen that keeps you regular. For many reasons it is not good to wait until you are very constipated, then take something to treat it. The best medication to use, which is safe to use every day, is glycolax. Use glycolax daily, consume plenty of fiber and drink lots of water. Avoid suppositoty use unless you are severely constipated.
My stomachs been hurting for days even after I eat. I think im constipated cause I cant go. How many glasses of prune juice? 3? I have school tmro so
Abdominal pain: Would need much more information and the ability to examine you in order to respond helpfully. If you have been constipated for some time this may be producing a physiological obstruction, or it may be due to an anatomical obstruction. You really need to be examined and a full history taken. See your family doctor.
May or may not help: Prunes/juice can help, but it does not work for everyone. I have never seen or heard of prune-overdose, so enjoy as many as you wish. If not better in 2-3 days, try miralax, (polyethylene glycol) fibercon, senokot-s, colace, Metamucil etc... For quicker relief, enema may help. Occasional use of milk-of-magnesia or mag-citrate for really-backed-up cases. If persistent, consult doc. Good luck.
Prune juice: Is prune juice. It is just fiber and fluid so brand is of little consequence.
How long?: Prune juice is a New Orleans remedy, that also when I can't find a stomach doctor, to assist my patient. I always thought 6 to 8 oz, to be enough.

In California, there are other exotic treatments. See your MD.

What is constipation: This word means something different to different people. There is a great deal of variation in the frequency of stools between different babies and even for one baby.

But constipation can be a sign of serious illness

What is safe besides suppositories to treat constipation? How to make going easier? Prune juice safe at this age?
Constipation.: I can't tell your age from your profile, but prune juice is generally safe. A good first start would be to increase the amount of fiber in your diet, and perhaps adding a fiber supplement such as Metamucil. When you do this, you need to increase the amount of liquid in your diet also. If this does not help after several weeks, then you should see your doctor for further plans. Good luck.
