Comment:
It worked... and if by gentle they mean not immediate then sure... I took it before bed and didn't have a BM till morning. But I've since made mupltiple trips to the restroom feeling miserable. Not gentle at all by my standards, just takes a while to get through your system! Once its there though, you're not stopping till there's nothing left... not even water!

I have frequent constipation and used to take correctol before they changed the formula due to them taking the old drug off the market...anyway this new formula doesn't work...all it does is give me severe cramps, nausea, and weakness...I will never take it again.
