I have been constipated for 6 days.

It happened after I got a stomach ache after I ate some pancakes.

I was able to go after that once, but it burned a little.

I have been taking Glyco-Lax once everyday for the last 5 and a half days.

It feels like it's gonna come out and it does come out a little but it wont come out all the way.

Should I be worried or something?

I also have Gastritis which doesn't help things either.

Which I am taking Maalox and Protonix for.

Please Help..

You might try a stool softner. How are you taking the Maalox? Are you taking it awhile after you eat? It is not good to take it before or right after. I would also suggest a pill especially for gas right after you eat. Apparantly the Glyco-lax is not working. I think I would try Ducolax with a stool softener.

so maybe try to not overloadwith foods that will bother you as well

Have you tried an enema or suppository? The other thing you can do (nasty, I know), is manual evacuation. Sometimes just getting a little bit out will make it easier for the rest to come out.
