Hi,

Creamafiin can be used for constipation and it has good result. Along with that you can use below advises:

Sever constipation could be due to enteropathy, fecoliths obstruction, and inadequate fiber intake. The stool becomes hard and this hard stuff goes on accumulating in the gut produce symptoms like stomach ache.

I would suggest to consult the gastroenterologist and undergo stool examination, ultrasound scan of abdomen, colonic transit studies, defecography and colonoscopy examination.

Following advice will help you:

- Glycerine enema for immediate relief
- Syrup creamaffine can be taken
- Tab bisacodyl at bedtime can useful
- Bulking agents like isabgol husk


Lifestyle changes:

- Drink one spoon of honey in warm water daily in morning before the bowel movement.
- Eat high fiber diet. Every meal should have salads and fruits with skin.
- Drink 2-4 litres water daily.

Daily evening and morning walk for 30 to 45 minutes to regularize the bowel movement. Take more fruits and green leafy vegetables in the diet. Set Up regular time for the motion.

Hope this may help you. Contact further if follow up needed.

Best regards,
Dr. Sagar
