Thanks for posting the query
Generally people having chronic constipation are themselves responsible for worsening of their problems by repeatedly taking laxatives and making their intestines and colon sluggish
Don't think of short term measures to cure your constipation
Take plenty of water like 1 to 2 liters extra of your normal intake to flush your intestines.
Do regular exercises.
Take plenty of fresh fruits and XXXXXXX leafy vegetables.
Stop taking laxatives
Avoid fast foods and greasy foods
Take isabgol husk 15 gms two times a day with at least one glass of water.
Keep doing these things regularly and don't stop even if your constipation becomes alright.
I hope to have answered your query however you can revert to me for any other query.
