It seems my 7 yr old has constipation issues.
His dr recommended giving him flax seed / flax seed oil

Is this more effective than the pedia lax enemas and laxatives?

When my daughter had constipation issues, her pedi recommended using Miralax daily.

It worked great!

In a day or so....but its something you should use for a few weeks, to get him on-track.

There are always Enemas - if he needs faster relief. You can buy an infant one, and I bet that would work too.

I am wavering between the Enema and pedia lax tablet. I guess both provide the desired effect.
