If you have chronic or recurrent constipation, see your doctor to make sure your constipation is not caused by an underlying
disease. If you have been checked by a doctor, be aware of new or
more intense discomfort or changes in the size, shape, or hardness of your
stools. If constipation does not improve after a few days of home treatment,
talk to your doctor.
