    Comment:
    I had used this drug before for treatment of constipation. One thing my experience taught me this time is to take the drug early, it often takes a lot longer than 12 hours to start working.

    After back surgery while on opiod pain meds, constipation hit pretty hard. A dose of 10 mg was ineffective, increased dose to 15 mg and achieved desired results. Still use for occasional relief, 10 mg dose is iffy, 15 mg always works, if taking at bedtime, be preparred after morning coffee, you won't have much warning.

    Comment:
    I suppose those for whom this medication works without any complications do not write reviews. But I must say that the medication worked quite well for me. I had to take only 10 mg and waited for about nine hours before having results. Process was normal with no cramps, urgency, nausea, etc. I took the med for about 24 hours (3x10 mg) just to be sure. One last thing about some of the other ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    When I take 2 pills, I get some movement with little to moderate pain in my abdomen. 2 pills don't seem to be enough. When I take 3 pills, I'll usually have a lot of diarrhea and moderate to severe pain that lasts up to 6 hours. Perhaps I'll try taking 2 pills twice a day for a few days. I also take a powdered fiber suppliment daily.
