In case natural cures don’t provide any relief, you can go for mild laxatives like milk of magnesia. Psyllium is the other remedy often recommended due to its bulk-adding quality. Stool softeners like docusate are also prescribed to ease the condition. These or stronger medications should be taken only after consulting the doctor. I also advise less reliance on drugs.
