Hi, my friend's 15 year old daughter is struggling with IBS with bad constipation. I recommended to her what I know works for me, but I know everyone is different! Can anyone else struggling with constipation provide tips for diet, supplements, vitamins, minerals, or medicine that can help her? Thank you so much 🙏

      Has she tried colace? It's fairly harmless and can help a lot. Does she take fiber daily? Of course adding fruit and vegetables to diet, prunes, figs, dates etc

One person with chronic IBS-C mentioned that working out, drinking water, and consuming coffee twice a week helps them. They also suggested eating a fig bar the night before and using a stimulate/hard laxative like Bisacodyl once a week to clean out. Another person recommended taking IBGard, which is peppermint oil in capsule form, as it helps with the pain and other symptoms. However, they cautioned against overusing OTC medicines for constipation and diarrhea as they may damage the gut even more. It was also suggested to consult with a gastroenterologist about the symptoms.
