Thanks for contacting healthcare magic.

You have problem of constipation. Cremaffin that is one type of luxative don't used to it.Try to avoid constipation by changing your diet.

Eat high fiber foods like blackberry, while grains,broccoli etc...
Eat fresh fruits and green vegetables like spinach.
Drink more water.

Avoid alcohol drinking and smoking.
Do regularly excercise more than 30 minutes.
Be a active.
Avoid junk foods.
Garlic soup helpful for digestion .
Avoid gaseous vegetable like cabbage and cauli flower.

After taking this much care still symptoms are present than you can take osmotic luxative like docusate sodium,sorbitol....etc
Hydrophilic colloid can use as bulk former.
All are not working than at last use enema for severe constipation.

Wish you a good health.
Take care.
