whenever i take my pain meds, i also take 2 herbal laxatives/stool softeners at the same time (sennakot) and generally, that balances the constipation out. i also eat fruit that i know will tear through me- oranges, apricots etc

Im on a narcotic and constipation is chronic no matter what I take . Try nulax, it is senna based in conjucntion with sorbilax which is
that my pain specialist put me on,. My life revolves around pain and worry about going to the toilet.
I went through the same thing for approx. 2 months. I finally talked with my doctor and she told me to try Metamucil tablets. I take 2 each morning with my other meds and it works like magic. Some people may have to take more or less.
There are also other generic drugs like Metamucil that work just as well. Hope you find something that works for you soon!
Never regret something that made you smile!
