In brief: COLACE (docusate sodium)
I recommend to my patients colace (docusate) one every 12 hours.
It's a stool softener that helps draw water into your colon to flush things along. If that doesn't help, then two every twelve hours. If that doesn't help, then MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) - one capful daily. Make sure you drink plenty of water to flush things along.
