Hello, you seem to have chronic constipation. You need a thyroid function test and a hemogram along with a stool examination. Depending on these tests further treatment can be planned. I would suggest to get these tests done and in the mean time continue medications. If what you have is slow transit constipation the we dont talk of cure we try to maintain regular bowel movements with a minmum dose of regular or intermittent medications. Hope this helps
