    I use Miralax as well, but it might take a few days. Haven't used it for years, but milk of magnesia was faster.

    One of the following:
    • Miralax
    • Magnesium citrate (1 bottle)
    • 1 Tb. Lactulose every 2 hours until results
    • Milk of Magnesia combined with Cascera (a Black & White)
    combined with one of the following:
    • Dulcolax (bisacodyl) tablets
    • Senakot capsules (2-4)
    • Lots of prune juice
    The first will pull water into the dried out stool and help lubricate it, while the latter will increase bowel peristalsis to move the stool along.

    You can also try eating anything that usually gives you the runs. I always remember one of my older Veterans who swore by having a green burrito when he was constipated!!

    If you have hard stool right in the rectum, an oil retention Fleets enema, followed 1-2 hours later with a regular Fleets enema (or two) may also be helpful.

    Meanwhile, if you are having AD, you need to monitor how severe it is (check your blood pressure) and check with your physician about oral medications to control any unsafe high blood pressure until you can resolve the cause (your impaction).

    Continue to drink fluids (at least 3 liters a day). If you are getting bloated and not passing gas, or start to vomit, or cannot control your AD, you need to go to the ER.
