    Sorry can't help, hope someone else here can for you tho. Or maybe you should ring OB and quiz him about it?

    Good Luck

    I'd follow the OB advice, and discuss with your pharmicist. You could try something like SpaTone which is a natural liquid supplement that doesn't tend to cause constipation as much.
