Constipation in pregnancy

Hi,

I am 8 weeks pregnant. I am very constipated - I''ve tried drinking lots of water and exercising. Is it safe to take Senokot while pregnant?

Thanks!

I wouldn''t recommend senokot. Duphalac Dry is what was recommended to me by my gynae. You mix it with any liquid (water or juice) doesn''t taste like anything and provides fast effective relief! Good luck!
