Our expert says:
I suggest that you consult a gastroenterologist for a colonoscopy to find the cause for your chronic constripation. In the interim you can use Laxette syrup (20ml, twice daily) in combination with Softlax tablets (two to four tablets at night) to soften your stools. You can also supplement with fibre. A good product to use is Solgar Multiple Fibre capsules available at health shops.
