Thanks for the ideas. My husband ended up getting me some stool softners and they seem to be working but i would much rather be doing it a more natural way, such as the fruits and veggies. I'm also going to try cutting my meds down to one 20mg aciphex instead of 40mg. My doc was suprised that Doc at the clinic had told me to take so much but to go ahead and stay for a little while longer. Well, it's been two weeks and I'm really thinking it's the high dosage that's doing it. I had read an article that someone had posted on here a while back about Prilosec and high dosage of it causing constipation. I'll let everyone know how it goes! Thanks!
