Brief Answer: Answer given below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for posting your query. I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you. For good bowel movements three things are very important - 1. Adequate fiber intake 2. Adequate fluid intake 3. Adequate physical activity I advice you to take high fiber diet ( lot of vegetables and fruits), drink enough fluids and have a brisk walk for at least 30 minutes everyday. You can fiber supplements like metamucil. For immediate relief from constipation you can take miralax. This does not interfere with xanax. I hope that answers your question. Let me know if I can assist you further. Regards, Dr.Ratnakar Kini

What about the problem of waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to go back to sleep? I don't want to take sleeping pills.
