    Good evening sir, Sorry about the constipation. First of all you have to understand that there are various factors that can be responsible for constipation diet being the most popular. A quick review of what you have been eating lately will give you an insight into why you have been constipated. Drugs can also be responsible for constipation. You have taken a lot of medications and I must tell you that some of these drugs might even worsen the condition. So I will advise you stop all these drugs. Take plenty of high fiber diets and fruits. Oranges with the inner flesh, yam, wheat and so on local foods that contain high fibre. You should also take plenty of water. If this doesn't resolve the problem, please see a doctor for proper management. Take care
