What is Constipation?

Constipation occurs when bowel movements lessen and stools are hard to pass. Straining, hard stools, incomplete bowl emptying, and less than three bowel movements a week are a few symptoms of constipation.

Treatment for constipation includes medication, fiber, and an increase in water intake. Common classes of medication include osmotic laxatives, chloride channel activators, stimulant laxatives, and stool softener laxatives.
