I have been constipated throughout my life as a result of bowel surgery which I had when I was one day old but now I am over 70 and take Norvasc Neurontin and clonozepam and my constipation has become troublesome with no results from taking laxatives two nights in a row drinking apple cider vinegar and taking Metamucil twice a day. Despite all this I rarely have a bowel movement more then every 7 to 10 days to become toxic and desperate when it last this long. I sometimes have to take magnesium citrate wishes to a difficult regimen as it is frequently disruptive. Apart from eating more fruits and vegetables and drinking lots of water does anyone have something which taken every day helps significantly?
