My wife has been terribly constipated for days due to the Percocet she is taking for pain. Since coming home from the hospital she has only had a few hard dry stools. I know a lot of you share her pain, so to speak... We have tried a lot of the remedies mentioned here and even bought a bottle of magnesium citrate but didn't use it yet. WE remembered a website called doctor yourself.com by Dr. Andrew Saul where he recommends vitamin c for constipation. She took 3000 mg then every 10 or 15 minutes another 2000 for an hour or so. She took a one hour nap and woke up to renewed peristaltis.. She is definately " moving" now. Totally cleaned out and feeling better than she has in days. Just wanted to pass this tip along.
