Patients at times ask the question of why they have constipation, whether it is related to allergy, and why medication do not work. It is not due to allergy.
Constipation is a common medical condition. Stool softeners usually help; the most frequent reason for not finding the result you desire is not taking dose sufficient and frequent enough to stimulate the emptying of the contents.
Diet can also play a role. High-fiber diets and fruit juices taken in sufficient quantity regularly can be of help.
Use of suppositories such as over the counter glycerin suppository have been beneficial to evacuate the last part that you feel is still hanging-in there. Many individuals have this negative impression about using the suppositories thinking that the behavior will be habit forming; I do not think that is a real issue.
If you have serious worries about it you may want to see a gastroenterologist who can have a look inside to decide if you have any abnormality.
