Laxatives To Treat Constipation After Chemotherapy?
ask what is a free and safe laxative drug? My mother after chemo has been constipated for almost a week and has been given medication by a doctor lactulax can defecate in the first chemo after the second chemo does not react even after using it several times.
Hello Wibisono, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Laxatives are included in the group of limited over-the-counter drugs, which can be purchased without a doctor's prescription, but instructions on how to use them should still be based on doctor's recommendations.
Therefore, you should bring your mother back to the doctor who is treating your mother for a re-evaluation of your mother's condition, whether or not you need additional laxatives and how to use the recommended rules.
In the meantime, besides using medicines given by doctors, keep your mother's food intake and also the amount of fiber consumed daily. It is also advisable to only use laxatives according to doctor's instructions.
I hope this helps.
