Thanks for posting query,
Her problem of having constipation seems to be due to taking Oxetol as it can produce constipation.
But this medicine is to be continued.
Give more vegetable soups and other diet fiber containing food.
Give her fruits like banana, watermelon, Papita etc.
Give plenty of water as you are giving.
You can give mild laxative daily at night.
Hope, I answered your query. If you have further query or clarification, please ask.
I will be happy to help.
Ok and bye.
