Brief Answer:
Cranberry juice, and if you are able to get valium/calmpose/Diazepam 2.5

Detailed Answer:
Hi try Cranberry juice, and if you are able to get valium/calmpose/Diazepam 2.5 mg--it will relax your muscles and help you pass urine.
Other drugs you can try to get--Buscopan (Hyoscine)and Flavospas-(Flavoxate)-these will help too till you can see your doctor.
Another practical suggestion--find a 60 plus male and ask him if he has any prostate tablets like Urimax with him.
Hope you manage to get at least one of the drugs suggested by me.
Please revert back--regards

Hi! I went to the Urgent Care yesterday because I was having some stomach cramps, back aches and spotting and I am currently in between periods. After taking a urine sample, doing blood work, and getting an x-ray of me the doctor there determined that I had severe constipation. The treatment was to drink 32oz of Gatorade mixed with 238g of Miralax and take two Dulcolax pills within an hour of drinking the mixture. He told me to do this for two days, however now i am not pooping out anything but liquid. It feels like I m peeing instead of pooping. Should I stop taking the laxatives?
