    Q: I am wondering if this product helps control hemorrhoid fissures.

    submitted by RM - 6 years ago
    • A: It doesnt help in controlling haemorhhoid fissures directly. But because its primary function is to soften stool, hence it doesn't aggravate the fissure.

    It Works But You Need Patience

    First time ever having serious constipation. Trying to go hurt so bad I thought I was pushing out pinecones. I took 1 pill because I was scared after reading the pills give really bad cramps. Took it at 7pm and at 2am I had slight relief, no cramps. The pill was still working in my system the next day too because it was slowly helping with going to the toilet easier but it did take time. I probably finally got back to normal after that 2nd day. I drank A LOT of water and high fiber foods too. If I had the same amount of pain in the future, I'd probably try 2 pills.

    Huge letdown - 1 year ago
    28 yo female. I had been constipated all day which is very rare for me and whenever I would try and push the stool that was already in my colon, it hurt WAY too much and was very hard. I took 3 pills at around 10 pm and at 3:20 am, I was able to release it all with minimal pain. This product is amazing!! It works slow but it WORKS.

    It works!. Had my wisdom tooth removed and the pain medication cause the worst constipation of my life! Took 2 and chugged a liter of water and 14 hours later had mild diarrhea but got the job gone! It was gentle on my tummy and no cramps or anything uncomfortable. Could hear the stomach and intestine muscles working! Remember drink lots of fluid and eat lots of fiber so its can do its job!

    I bought these to use for postpartum after having my second daughter back in March. Didn’t end up needing them or using them at all, however, these are still a MUST HAVE for postpartum. I did have to use these after having my first and they helped so much.

    Tried everything to relieve my problems, nothing was working! Never have any digestive problems so it was quite strange for me to have these problems, suffered with cramping and stomach pains for 2 days and hadn’t been for 4! Took this at 7pm and by 6am Id completely got rid of everything! Suffered with some cramping for a couple of hours after but now symptom free! Thankyou for this product meant I could finally enjoy my birthday without suffering in pain anymore!

    1st time I tried this brand for a stool softener. I must take stool softeners daily & usually use Senna. I gave this a try & it worked, but it didn’t work as well as Senna. Dulcolax stool softener took more time than Senna to have a bowel movement. (…& the Senna does not use a laxative stimulant in case ur thinking that is the reason why).

    First of all, I never thought I would be writing a laxative review, but here we are. The product works well. If you take one pill At bedtime, you will see results the next morning. If you take three, you will indeed have overnight relief, but it will not be gentle. They are powerful; don’t be fooled by the small size. Ha ha.

    Good digestive health is important to good skin health. Unfortunately, I’m not as active as I used to be pre-pandemic, which sometimes slows down my digestion of food, not to mention I recently started eating meat again after over a year of being a vegan. I love that I can depend on this product to be gentle and effective. Best thing, you really only need the minimum dose. A must have when your stomach is not cooperating. Great price!

    This is the worst laxitive ever made. Not gentle at all. I never take laxatives and when I had to I experienced extreme stomach pain for hours before it actually made me use the restroom. The only way to get rid of the stomach pain is to use the restroom, which this pill seemed to prevent. Had to drink coffee to get it to work. Builds up a bunch of gas in your stomach. Most painful laxitive out there

    Dulcolax is a great product! I have really bad constipation so taking a few of these everyday really helps. I have been taking Dulcolax Stool Softeners for many years now. I will continue to buy Dulcolax stool softeners in the future. They are a great product!

    I was very constipated so I took 2 laxative tablets at 7am. (Directions said to take 1-3 tablets for adults). By 10:30am the medication was in full effect! The box says works in 6-12 hours but I got relief in such a short period.
