Treatment of chronic constipation starts with relief with the Movocol or Miralax but should be maintained with a bulk forming laxative/dietrary changes and then long term use of a stool softener.
The stool softener thats best for long term use is docusate sodium, brand name colace but there are many store brands.
I hope this helps.

I have tried Miralax, Citrucel and Colace...I don't need stool softeners - they come out soft once they do come. It's getting the colon to MOVE. The Miralax and Citrucel were not effective for any length of time.
