I was one of those that if water wasn't available I didn't go looking - one bout of hideous constipation changed me - I had colonoscopies - to see if there were blockages - Dr told me to take metamucil - nothing helped - it was a living nightmare as my nerve endings were damaged also so sensitivity was pretty well gone not helping. I tried triphala - I did stay away from laxatives - SAID I HAD IBS = last year I was rushed to major hospital with a diverticuli bleed (I was on blood thinner too) - THAT IS WHEN I LEARNED ABOUT MIROLAX - - - the head of GI gave me a rx for it as I was getting ready to leave - that is what they had been giving me - no flavor - mix with hot or cold drink - it is NOT a quick fix - it is a stool softener - and is over the counter now - after a living nightmare for over 7 years - pills etc by Doctors - I do take it if I have not gone in three days - but that is the exception rather then the rule
