Actually, constipation = going less often or with more difficulty due to harder/drier stools than normal for that person. So while only going twice a week may be normal for some, it is NOT normal for others who are used to going more often.
I use magnesium, calcium, & Burdock Root supplements, and make sure to drink enough water and it helps to do some activity regularly that gets things moving (such as basketball, rapid walking, etc.).
Also, I found Miralax to be more constipating than helpful...I think it absorbs too much water, and if a person cannot drink that much water fast enough, then it binds a person up even more than before taking it. Milk of Magnesia seems to work better for me when I'm in dire need...
