Hi there,
Laxatives are over the counter medications used to help relieve constipation.Overuse, accidental overdose or abuse can lead to problems in few people. Abdominal pain, bloating can be experienced by few people. You may find some benefit by taking an over the counter antacid and antispasmodic for relief from pain. You need to control your constipation by eating fiber-rich foods, drinking at least 10 glasses of water each day and exercising regularly. If the abdominal pain is severe it is best to see a doctor. Do keep us posted.
Take care and regards!

Hi there!

It is unwise to use laxatives without medical advice. You could try using a few antispasmodic/ anti-diarrhoeal medications (limited dose) and see if these seem to help.

Take care!
