Is it okay to take a laxative after being constipated from taking Imodium (loperamide)? tried Stool softeners, but that didn't work.

In brief: Stool softener

The stool softener is the better choice, you have to take it consistently and can increase it if needed.
You also have to drink a lot of fluid with the stool softener.
