  • Get some over-the-counter relief

    Try stool softeners like docusate sodium (Colace), docusate potassium (Surfak), and polyethylene glycol (MiraLAX)

  • Try a bulk laxative

    For results within 12 to 24 hours, take 5 to 10 grams per day of psyllium husk or 3 to 4 grams per day of glucomannan mixed in water, followed by a second glass of water

  • Get more fiber and water in your diet

    To increase stool bulk, include more vegetables, beans, bran, flaxseed, and whole grains in your diet; don’t forget to drink more water when you increase fiber intake

  • Find some rapid relief

    Use a bisacodyl (Dulcolax) suppository or a saline enema (Fleet) to help with symptoms

  • Get a checkup

    Constipation that starts suddenly should be evaluated by a doctor to make sure no serious diseases are the cause

  • Ask about prescription medications

    Polyethylene glycol (GoLytely) and lactulose (Cephulac, Constulose) are commonly prescribed to treat constipation
