    DO NOT TAKE THIS DRUG! Horrible experience with only 1 pill. Vomited at the same time of elimination. Sweats, chills, dizziness, blurry vision. Worse than childbirth and appendix bursting 10 years ago. Threw the box in the trash.

    I have got relief from constipation and irregular BM, so I used it regularly, most of the times 2 tablets per day, I have developed hypernatremia, I dont know if this has any relation to my use of dulcolax. Also, I find it extremely difficult to have BM without taking this medicine. I have no other complications like BP, cholesterol, blood sugar etc.

    It has been 2 days since I took 1 Dulcolax. I am still having stomach cramps and severe heartburn. Is heartburn a side effect? I have only had 1 bowel movement.

    I have taken this product before. There are two types. I have taken the blue somewhat normal size pills, they work with a little stomach cramping but once bowl movement occurs its gone. The last time I purchased these I opened the package and they were tiny, I mean tiny little tanish colored pills with a BI on it. Don't take these.
