In brief: Stool softeners
I usually recommend a high fiber diet such as prune juice and/or stool softeners such as colace twice daily and/or MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) daily work well.

In brief: Laxatives
Fruit juices, prunes, increasing water in diet, MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) (which is not a laxative and therefore has fewer side effects).
