Are you aged 18-70 years?
Do you pass stool less often than you would like or have difficulty passing stool?
Have you had symptoms of constipation for more than six months?
Have you previously tried to change your diet and lifestyle to manage your constipation?
Have you tried at least 2 types of medication like laxatives to relieve your constipation?
