"It's just my allergies." Is it?

Common constipation treatment studies worrying you?
Headlines recently have announced that a common treatment used for constipation is being studied for safety in children. Several parents have asked me about it, and I know many more are probably worried but just haven't asked yet, so I thought I'd share my ...
