Advice regarding constipation relief
1. Make the emptying of bowels a habit.
Go to the toilet once a day at a set time. (The best time is after breakfast.) Do not try to hold your stool.
2. Strengthen your abdominal muscles.
Facilitate bowel movement by strengthening your abdominal muscles. This can be done by massaging the abdomen, exercise that involves twisting your body, or by swimming.
3. Be careful of your diet.
Promote intestinal movement by drinking cold water or milk after getting up in the morning and by eating lots of food high in fiber, such as fruits and vegetables.
(If you do not follow the precautions listed below, your current symptoms may worsen and you may be at an increased risk of side effects.)
|Skin||Rashes, redness, itching|
|Digestive organs||Severe abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting|
