In brief: Good bowel habits

Modify your diet, drink plenty of water, may have to use laxatives to help you going.
See doctor asap if with rectal bleeding to rule out colon cancer.

Agree, but first, why are you constipated? Need evaluation to make sure no underlying problems.

In brief: Constipation

Start with your diet.
Eat plenty of fruits and veggies, avoid apples and bananas.Drink fruit juices like orange, prune, grapes.To much rice makes you constipated also to much tea intake.You do not need meds if your diet has enough fiber otherwise get suppository or fleet enema (sodium bisphosphate).
