I would request a stool sample test to make sure you don't have an infection or other pathogens going on. This can be arranged over the phone with the drs office.
You had asked about Linzess in another post. In the chronic pain forum a few people were able to get it prescribed. Narcotics are notorious for causing terrible constipation. Their drs had to really fight to get insurance to approve because it is very expensive.
If you are dealing with constipation the last thing you need to take is a laxative or mag citrate. The colon is made up of nearly all water, these will deplete the colon of liquid.
For the constipation stick with stool softners but also keep in mind you need to stay well hydrated. For a more natural effect, try warm prune juice. Also, look at your diet, eliminate foods that cause gas & there are plenty.
