    Milk of Magnesia is the easiest on the system. Once you get things moving it might be a good idea to take a daily stool softener. Colace is the name brand, however most stores sell their own brand. Make sure though that you dont get "Peri-Colace" as that is a laxative. Increase your water intake as well.

    My doctor recommended milk of magnesia for me --- I haven't needed it for a long time but I do have some on hand. I also have stool softener on hand --- I had to take it for a while after a surgery. If I drink enough and get enough fiber it seems to keep me regular.

    Thanks I don't really think it is the elmiron that is causing it I have this issue a lot. I was just wondering if there was anything that would be safe to take?

    I haven't heard that elmiron caused constipation for anyone. I do think you should give your doctor a call if you haven't had a BM for that long.
