Best Meds For Chronic Constipation

I rather eat 2 kiwi fruits. Not use Metamucil. I have tried phlox but that made me go toiler heaps every hour. Try and use natural foods, spices etc. As I don't know what they put into the pills we take

I have found eating a pot of pro biotic yoghurt and drinking kefir yogurt helps, as do bran flakes and porridge rolled oats and fresh spinach. Iā€™m vegetarian. šŸ™‚

I don't take any pills from the doctors for IBS. As i found the ones in the past did not help my symptoms.
And for pills. We don't know what ingredients are in the pills.
I rather take Mintec (peppermint oil)
tablets brought from the super markets.

In the past 15 years, I have tried Amitiza, Trulance, and Miralax. Seems to work at first, but then stops. I am currently trying Linzess, the maximum strength. Seems to work best if I take it a few days, then stop a few days, then start again. If I take it every day, it seems like my body becomes immune. When all else fails, I take 1-2 capfuls of Milk of Magnesia before bed, and it works the next day. I have to make sure I can stay home all that day, with no plans. It's terrible the things we have to go through, that just become a part of our life. It seems unfair. Why can't I be like others, that go every day, with no problems whatsoever? I've been dealing with this for over 30 years.
