Thanks to everyone who replied. I was wrong, I thought I read about
the medication here, but it was actually in a discussion forums.

http://forum.canadianparents.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=272465&fpart=1

The medication is miralax or peglax

I guess for us (Canadian resident) we can order it through
http://www.pegflakes.com/index.html

My son went through too many episodes, and tried many remedies that was
suggested in here.

Soon after I posted, I realized my posr looked like I am promoting
something. Your reply confirmed it. Oh well, live and learn.

As for my son, he recovered from the problem since the original post.
However, I will ask about miralax (snake oil, ha ha ) next time when I
see his pediatrician.

Great! So the cure for constipation means waiting two days.
No meds necessary!
