what's the fastest way to cure constipation?

Alright… lots of fiber at once can actually cause gas and create a blockage. Some people experience pain and gas with over the counter products.
Lots of water (fluids), cut down on fat/fried foods and eat oatmeal in the morning.
PS theres never a fast cure, constipation is a condition.


dont eat too much of non fibrous food ,drink a lot of water when you wake up in the morning,smoking also causes constipation ,fastest way is get some fibrous drinks in medicine shop ask the guy for it


Eat 2 apples every day (NOT JUICE)...AND >> take a FIBER mix (stir into water...like Benefiber, Metamucil, Fibercon).

apple juice

whats constipation

don't eat cheese

prunes, prune juice, raisin bran, or whole grain wheat bran are excellent sources of fiber!!! :) Good luck! :D

Taking a huge ****


Purchase a device from your local drugstore to give your self an enema. If you do this once or twice a week, it will also keep you from getting other diseases.


Drink fruit juice or just fruit, hopefully that will help. and quit drinking and eating a great amount of dairy products

Colace, aka Col-Rite, Correctol, Diocto, Dioeze, Doc-Q-Lace, Docucal, Docucil, Docusoft, DSS, Silace, Surfak

At the drug store, works over night.

To prevent constipation eat plenty of fiber and drink lots of water.

In people without medical problems, the main intervention is the increase of fluids (preferably water) and dietary fiber. The latter may be achieved by consuming more vegetables and fruit, whole meal bread and by adding linseeds to one's diet. The routine non-medical use of laxatives is to be discouraged as this may result in bowel action becoming dependent upon their use.

Laxatives may be necessary in people in whom dietary intervention is not effective or inappropriate. Stimulant laxatives (e.g. senna) are generally avoided, as they may worsen crampy sensations commonly experienced in constipation. In various conditions (such as the use of codeine or morphine), combinations of hydrating (e.g. lactulose or glycols), bulk-forming (e.g. psyllium) and stimulant agents may be necessary. Many of the products are widely available over-the-counter.

Enemas and clysters are generally reserved for hospitalized patients in whom the constipation has proven to be severe, dangerous in other ways, or resistant to laxatives. Sorbitol, glycerin and arachis oil suppositories are used. Severe cases may require phosphate solutions introduced as enemas.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) constipation can respond to an IBS-specific diet. Having a foundation of high soluble fiber foods and soluble fiber supplements (acacia, methylcellulose), substituting soy or rice products for dairy products, being careful with (but not avoiding) fresh fruits and vegetables that are high in insoluble fiber, and eating regular, small amounts can all help to lessen the symptoms of IBS (Van Vorous 2000). Foods and beverages to be avoided or minimized include red meat, oily or fatty (and fried) products, dairy products (even when there is no lactose intolerance), solid chocolate, coffee (regular and decaffeinated), alcohol, carbonated beverages (especialy those also containing sorbitol) and artificial sweeteners (Van Vorous 2000). Herbal remedies such as enteric-coated peppermint oil capsules can also be helpful for IBS-constipation and associated abdominal pain.

Constipation that resists all the above measures requires physical intervention. Manual disimpaction (the physical removal of impacted stool) is done under sedation or a general anesthetic—this avoids pain and loosens the anal sphincter.

Eat lots of fiber like fruit.

Drink lots of water, or have raisin bran. Don't eat cheese until...well...anyway, good luck with that!

Milk of magnesia. Follow the directions on the label. I have overdosed and underdosed and I can tell you from experience to follow the directions.

Increase your intake of water and fiber.Fruit has lots of fiber.Also raw vegetables,Oatmeal,nuts,and whole grains.Don't do laxatives.That is only a temporary fix.You also could become addicted to them.Diet is a major factor contributing to Constipation..Medications can play a part as well.Talk to your Doctor if this goes on for a long period of time or if you notice abdominal pain.Exercise can also make you more regular.A lazy body can make for a lazy colon.
