Constipated &  breastfeeding

Please help. I' m breastfeeding my newborn baby and haven' t passed stool in ages.
What can I take that is safe for me to use while breastfeeding? Dulcolax? Epsom Salts? (I' ve heard that epsom salts dries your milk out though but not sure how true this is?)

Dulcolax is fine.

Best wishes
