The best long term remedy is to increase the amount of fiber you consume by eating foodstuff such as; vegetables, fruits, wheat and oat. Also you should probably go for the various laxatives available including: lubricant, Emollient, Hyperosmolar, Saline and Stimulant. You can also find more information on the same from this link http://digestive.niddk.nih.gov/ddiseases/pubs/constipation/.

took two yesterday and drank enough water to make urine go from cloudy back to clear which means i should no longer be dehydrated.

Magnesium Citrate. Any drug/grocery store carries it. Be ready to go fast when it hits.

i keep hearing about this and am wondering how it will work and what the pain level will be with big dry hard stool in the way?

I know for me that it pretty much liquified everything. But to more certain for yourself ask a pharmacist. I would call a Walgreens or CVS and speak directly with one.

I agree with saywhatnow sasy about Miralax for everyday type constipation. The rule, according to my Dr. is if you haven't gone in 3 days use Milk of Magnesia. If it's longer than that, see your dr. as you may have a blockage.
