What to do if a suppository doesn't work?
Not Medical Advice: If a laxative suppository does not work, increase your water intake to 8 glasses a day, make sure you are getting regular exercise, eat high fiber foods such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and add a daily fiber supplement to your diet. If none of these ideas provide the desired result see your MD. He may prescribe a chloride channel activator or a 5-HT-4 agonist to promote bowel movements.
