Hope you got a laxative. Constipation is a deep seated problem in your digestive system which should be healed from the root cause. Longterm use of laxatives may backfire.

Hi there...I can understand your concern. If you haven't passed any stools at all since two days, then it's better to consult a general surgeon once for local examination. Getting hard stools in such hot weather is common(due to excessive loss of water). Take plenty of fluids. eat foods rich in fibres like green leafy vegetables and raw fruits, vegetables. You take syrup looz (or any syrup containing lactulose). 10 ml in the night. If there's no relief in two days, then kindly consult a nearby general surgeon for further evaluation.
