    I have suffered extreme cramping , nausea and shivering. I will never use Dulcolax again and wish that I had read reviews before taking one tablet last night. I am still suffering from diarrohea and cramps 14 hours later. This should not be available over the counter.

    This was a horrific experience. I took "one", and several hours later. I went to bed. About three hours later, I woke up from my throat in spasms of repeated involuntary swallowing. I didn't even know this was possible, and I'm 58 years old. I realized I was having severe (bile) acid reflux and heartburn, so much so that my throat and esophagus were badly burned for two days.
