Curious: Chronic constipation

  1. Okay fellow hospice nurses...
    ongoing issue and seeking suggestions / advice

    chronic issues with constipation despite use of everything from miralax, colace, dulcolax, senna, and even mag citrate.

    other remedies tried: prune juice, increased fiber in meals

    No opioid usage. Consuming >75% of meals. Adequate hydration. Moderate activity- chairbound.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
