Hi my name is***** and I am a clinical pharmacist at a very well respected hospital in Oklahoma. You have lots of options for constipation over the counter and they are all safe with your medications. Milk of magnesia would be a good option. Also another good option which is my favorite is Miralax. It comes in a generic brand and is pretty cheap. It can be mixed with water, soda, coffee, or tea and drank and has no flavor unlike the milk of magnesia. You might also try some docusate for a stool softener. If you have any more questions please let me know. Thank you for reaching out to justanswer for your medical needs. We ask that you rate us always so that we can strive to be the best at what we do.
