Hello,

Desoxyn is not used for constipation. Low fiber diet and sedentary lifestyle may be one of the causatives for constipation. So you may try an alternative like lactulose or liquid paraffin or bulk-forming agents may useful.

Please consult your doctor physician he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
