Best Over The Counter Medications For Constipation

Constipation is a topic that we just don't talk about enough. If you've ever suffered the unpleasantness of constipation then you'll know what I mean. The bloated tummy, loss of appetite, nausea, cramping, and fatigue are awful and that's only a few. If you leave it for too long then it'll just get even worse until it's so bad you need to get to the doctors.

Thankfully there are things that you can do at home and also medications that you can pick up from your local pharmacist to assist you in this difficult time. There are a couple of medications that you can try but it's best to check with your pharmacist as to which one will be best for you:

  1. Stool softeners: these make the stool a lot easier to pass naturally by getting water reabsorbed into the stool. When it's soft enough to body will do a normal bowel movement to get rid of it.
  2. Laxative based: these activate the nerves and muscle fibers in your gut to get things moving again. You need to be really careful with this type because your bowel and become dependent and lazy if you take too much for too long.
