Here's a suggestion: get a big "sipper" from one of the places that give them away -- or sell them cheap -- for soft drinks. Fill it with bottled water and a slice of lemon and keep it next to you. It will get water down much more easily and steadily.

Water is key to preventing constipation. If you are taking any kind of fiber supplement, you've got to have lots more water.
