A stepwise approach to medical therapy for constipation should start with a high-fiber diet, fiber supplement, and adequate fluid intake. An emollient such as ducosate would be suggested next. Although almost any laxative can be used on an infrequent basis, osmotic laxatives such as Milk of Magnesia or lactulose are preferred if chronic laxative use is needed or desired by the patient. For patients with constipation-predominant irritable bowel syndrome, tegaserod can be added for patients refractory to the simpler therapies.
