-- Try apples, apple juice, or grapes.

-- Fig Newtons work for me.

-- Try FiberCon -- it works wonders!

-- Eat prunes. Just try them. And the brand name ones taste better.

-- A little coffee helped me.

-- I started eating a bowl full of bran flakes every morning and drinking a ton of water and that has worked for me.

Of course, talk to your doc with any questions and to find out what he recommends.
