    Worst night of my life. Took this at 8:30 pm, work up at 5am in excruciating pain. Horrific stomach aches that went on for hours and once it actually started working all I had was horrific diarrhea. Do not use this!!!!

    I took 3 dulcolax around 11pm and woke up at 7:30 with the worst pain I’ve ever felt in my life. I was sweating like crazy, nauseous, and in excruciating pain all over my stomach. 100x worse than period cramps but a similar pain. I thought I was dying. I threw up from the pain.

    Horrible. First time taking a laxative for constipation. Took two before bed because it said it would take about 6 hours to work and I woke up in the morning with flu like symptoms. Was sweating and thought I was going to vomit. Had the worst diarrhea all day long. I would try to eat or drink something and within five minutes it would be coming back out the other end. Not a good experience
