    A. Product called Miralax

    A. Product called Miralax here in the states works well for constipation. As a pharmacist I see every one from the elderly in nursing homes, to Cancer patients, to post surgical patients take it. It is not a fiber, but you mix it with water. It is safe for long term use once a day or as you need it. I no longer have a colon due to a total colectomy 13 yrs ago for ulcerative colitis, but i sure have dispensed a lot of it over the years. Just thought I would give you an idea if the docusate isn't working. vickie
