Try fleet mineral oil enema Ronnie,no cramps
I have not heard of it but I hope it works for you. I use miralax in the morning and drink apple cider at night to help with constipation. Its so frustrating dealing with constipation!
I've had chronic constipation since age 14,doctors back then told my mom to give me Fleet enema if I didn't have a BM by day 3 ,well I wound up having to get enemas from my mom (an exn LVN),almost every week till now(I'm in 50s)..

Yes getting weekly enemas has made it impossible for me to go potty without them still

Can it safely be used twice a week
I have used prune juice and it does work, but now I use Miralax and it has helped me so far. I also take Fibercon and 3 stool softners at night. So far it has worked.
I use Miralax every night sometimes twice a day, and it has saved me! What helps you with constipation?
I do two things, Natural Calm (magnesium citrate) taken twice daily. Then I have been trying a new fiber called Pinch Magic fiber.. Drink plenty of water throughout the day, that is imperative!
