Hello from JustAnswer.
Actually, the Precose is much more likely to cause diarrhea. While constipation is infrequent, diarrhea happens in almost 1/3 of patients
The list of side effects must list all possible side effects, but frequently does not differentiate common from uncommon side effects.
So, yes, it would be appropriate to continue taking the Precose.
