OTC Treatment for Constipation

Constipation is a condition in which there is difficulty in emptying the bowels, usually associated with hardened stool.

Laxatives can help relieve and prevent constipation. But Overuse of certain laxatives can lead to dependency and decreased bowel function.

However, before turning to laxatives, try these lifestyle changes to help with constipation:
  • Eat fiber-rich foods, such as wheat bran, fresh fruits and vegetables etc.
  • Drink plenty of fluids daily.
  • Exercise regularly.

Because most of the time, constipation doesn’t require treatment with laxatives. It will usually go away on its own or if you make changes in your diet and other habits.
