Brief Answer:
You may give her cremaffin

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to the HCM

I understand your concerns but don't worry. You may continue her on Syp. Cremaffin along with fibre rich diet and plenty of fluids. Once she starts passing soft stools, you may decrease the frequency of cremaffin gradually over a week and then stop. Continue the dietary advice.

It is the recommended treatment for constipation.

I would be happy to help you in any further questions.
Take care
