Okay, so I think constipation might be relevant in this site because it's sort of related to nutrition, but..
One of the treatments to get rid of constipation is by using laxatives. However, I've heard that long-term uses of them are not desired, and can have detrimental effects.
What about suppositories? From what I've heard, they just soften up the stool on the spot, so would it be fair to assume that there's not much to worry about in terms of long-term effects?
