I have been dealing with this as long as I have been on seizure meds and have resorted to taking Senno-knot S in the am and pm. I would try one at night and if you don’t see results in a day or 2 go to one am and one pm. Stay on them as long as you are on seizure meds. My dr and surgeon said the end result was a bum and that was healthier than not taking laxatives. I presently take 2 in the am and 3 pm. I am not guaranteed a bum each day but at least every few days. There have been times when it has been 10 days in between hence the need to see a surgeon.

Eating healthy and drinking lots of water is the best course of action but if the constipation is still an issue there is nothing wrong with using a natural laxative such as Senno-knot S.

All the best.

Not To Be Weird Or Anything BUT I Am Constipated Almost All The Time Because Of My Anti-Seizure Medication. I Never Experienced Constipation After A Seizure However I Am Dealing With It Almost All The Time. For Those Of You In A Similar Situation You MAY Want To Try Doing What I Do......I Simply Eat Stuff That WILL Help Me Poop NOT Alwasy A GOOD Idea I KNOW Because You NEVER KNOW When The Food Is Going To Kick In However It Beats Taking Another Medication Over The Counter Or Otherwise, Try Eating A Couple Of Handfuls Of Smartfood Popcorn ANd DO That For A Few Days In A Row And You WILL See A Difference BELIEVE ME You Might Not Poop Every Day But You WILL Poop TRUST ME
