  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for constipation)
  • Side effects
    Mild
  • Adherence
    Never taken as prescribed
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I take stewed prunes, about 5 - 10 nightly, as needed. It tends to make me gassy and because of this, I do not socialize until the gassiness disipates. It does seem to loosen the stool. Little impact. It was not prescribed by my MD who thought it would not help. I decided to take it on my own.
Cost: < $25 monthly
