Make sure to drink plenty of water. ...Read more

There are several OTC medications available for treatment of constipation, but you should first try simpler methods such as high fiber food. Drink plenty of water as dry stool leads to impaction too. Change your diet to include more fruit and vegetables and exercise regularly which helps as well. ...Read more
