Constipation (ick) during travel

Jump to last reply

I always get constipated during travel - despite that I drink gallons of water and really try to eat right.

I do take sleeping pills on the flight and the first few days and think that does not help.

Last trip I took flax seed with me and mixed with the breakfast everymorning. Can't say it helped. I've tried in the past Menamuslic capsiles(spelling is not my strong point) and another brand I think was Phillips.

I hate it and after being bloated and miserable for 4 days I take a laxative and explode and then the cylce just repeats!
When I get home I have to wean myself off sleeping pills and laxatives.

BTW, I'm excited about leaving for India in 2 days!!!
