Does anyone have any suggestions for chronic constipation? My mom is on docusate and senna (both can be taken twice a day) We do the docusate (softner) twice a day but the senna we only do once a day. Her bowel movements are hit and miss one day it can be soft and the next day it will be hard as a rock and she can't pass it. Lately they have just been hard as a rock and she has had to then resort to magnesium citrate and enemas which just make her stomach hurt and still take a while to work. We need something to keep her regular and soften her stool even more because the docusate isn't cutting it.
