Hi, My 2 year and 3 months son is given piclin kid for constipation. He has taken this 3 months but once I stop the medicine he is constipated. He is having this constipation problem for around 8-9 months. Can this medicine be given for longer? How long will it take to get rid of this problem? Is there any natural way to get rid of this problem?
