There's a whole thread about constipation at the top of this page. It has many ways to deal with it. I was on bupe for 7 years and at high doses much of that time, so contipation was a big problem if i didn't take precautions. For me Miralax (stool softener) and occasional laxative worked.

Hi Sassycass,
Welcome to addiction survivors! Constipation is a well known side effect and the link S-Z gave you has great info in it. You have to pay attention to the constipation and stay ahead of it, or it can be dangerous. Drink plenty of water too.
