Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.

You have said you are constipated and have taken laxatives. But you have not mentioned what laxative you have taken.

For good bowel movements three things are important -
1. Adequate fiber intake
2. Adequate fluid intake
3. Adequate physical activity

You can take miralax for relief.
I hope that answers your question.
