    Did you use the water flavours with LL? If so they contain fibre which would have helped stop constipation. You can buy soluble fibre from a lot of pharmacies (in particular any that sell Lipotrim will do it).

    Also my doctor recommended glycerol/glycerine suppositories and these do work pretty well.

    It may just be a reaction to you starting and it will sort itself out in a few more days.

    Couple of spoonfuls per day of Fibresure stirred into a glass of water will sort you out! Boots, Tescos, pharmacies etc sell it.
