    I've never taken a laxative before. I'd tried Dulcolax stool softener for 2 days with no real results. Then tried the laxative tablets. Took three tablets at about 6pm. Some mild cramping began at about 8. Woke up at 1:30am and had a normal bowel movement, and then experienced loose movements about every hour until around 8am. I wouldn't recommend this product if you've got activit ... Show Full Comment

    I have had a lifelong history of constipation..........I had a colonosocpy on Friday morning. It went well..However, I did not have a bowel movement for two days so I took the laxative(3pills.) Sunday midnight before bed. I woke up with total relief. No stomach pains or any other side effects. I love this medication. I will use it again when needed.

    I recently had a surgery that I considered to be the most painful thing of my life. I'm on medications that back me up and needed to use a stool softener. I used dulcolax and how my body felt was actually more painful than pain from my surgery!! I took them at dinner time and by 4am I had to jump out of bed and rush to the bathroom. I had the most intense stomach pains and I felt terrible for ... Show Full Comment

    Worst stomach pain I have ever exprienced. I have taken plant laxatives in the past for occasional constipation and know to expect slight cramping/discomfort and potentially runny stools. The pain of ducolax was like nothing I've experienced before. Took at 3pm and between 9pm and 2am experienced excruciatingly painful cramps and diarrhea. Will never take again.
