    My doctor told me to take 2 daily. Nothing happened, so over a week I increased to taking actually 6 daily. It's been 2 weeks now and still no movement :( My stomach is extremely bloated as I'm sure you can imagine. Going to go straight to laxitives tomorrow even though I know you aren't supposed to get dependant on those.

    I used Colace along with a suppository when it was too painful to pass a stool due to a few days of constipation. Colace solved the problem and I was pain-free!

    I took this medication on the advise of my OB for constipation during pregnancy not releived by increased fiber/fruits/veggies. It worked after 3 days! However, it did make me swell up which makes me a bit achy, but it did solve the poop issue!

    At one point my bowl movements completely stopped. This helps me go but sometimes I still have a hard time.

    Comment:
    I had rectal bleeding from straining too much.I also was bloated, and often felt rushed to finish. Colace made it easier for me to elimnate! Also had hard stools at times, not always. Recommend drinking more water when taking this product for sure. But it was great!
