Dear Toni, fI have had trouble with constip. for 16 yrs. My internist said I should try Miralax. I had been taking it about 10 yrs ago under the name colyte. It does work but after 2 days I had an allergic reaction. I'll wait a bit and try again. It does not taste good. That's probably why I stopped before. Good luck. Judy I,ve used Milk of Magnesium and lactulose and Metumucil and suppositories when I need it.
