Constipation is more likely a sign of too many vegetables too fast. Your gut flora needs time to adapt to new kinds of soluble fibre. The insoluble fibre in flaxseeds helps draw water into the stool, which softens it and makes it easier to pass, so you need to make sure you drink a bit more water than usual if you use them. I’d avoid fibre supplements and stick to foods like Latka said. Slippery elm can help in a similar way to flaxseed, and can soothe the GI tract, especially if you make a soup/jelly out of it.
