CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Anna Vedina is helping her patients deal with constipation.
Her first advice is to eat plenty of fiber, fruits, veggies and drink plenty of water.
If that doesn't help, try over the counter stool softeners or gentle laxatives. You can ask your doctor about other medications.
See your doctor, if constipation is not improving, if there is blood in stool, weight loss or abdominal pain.
