The laxatives at the beginning were great and helped with constipations. Over time they stopped working for me and would go from one to two whenever I felt constipated and would no longer work for me. I’d recommend something stronger.

Go-to for constipation

I suffer (unfortunately) from chronic constipation. I have only had to use this product a few times since discovering it a few months ago, but to me it is the most effective product I have ever used. I recently was constipated for 9 days — the longest I've ever been — due to antibiotics for something else. I got advice from my Dr. and other Urgent Care Drs to use Miralax everyday and if that doesn't work after 4-5 days then I should try magnesium citrate. Let me tell you that magnesium citrate tastes horrendous and is so difficult to get down. Neither of those worked, so I took 2 of these tiny Target laxative pills at night and by the next morning I was relieved. I find them reliable and effective. My advice for dosage is: if you're constipated for a few days then try 1 pill at first, <5 days with no other laxatives taken then take 2, <7 days then take 3 unless you took other laxatives during that week (like me) then only take 2.

Came a crossed these in Target, price was great & the GENTLE in the description gave me hope! Came home read the reviews & was instantly feeling regret & fear 😳 I tried 1 pill & it took about 2-3 hours to start & it worked VERY well ..no cramping ..nausea or sweats as some noted they experienced…I see some ppl took 2 & even 3 pills on the first try. Lesson learned, glad I tried it for myself & started off with 1 pill. Good luck!

I normally use Smooth Move tea for occasional constipation, so am used to the results of rather extreme laxatives. I have tried other types of “gentle” laxatives before with minimal to no results, so went for an dose of two pills on this. Um, yeah. That was at about midnight, and from 11 to noon the next day, the bathroom was my only friend. OMG. I mean, it worked, and then some, so I can’t complain about efficacy. Just….maybe start with one pill, is all I’m saying….

I had been backed up for a few days and Miralax didn’t work so I tried this. I took 3 pills around 8pm at night and around 1030 the next morning I was on the toilet. It definitely works.

I am chronically constipated and the pills I was taking were just too expensive (since I take them daily… and they didn’t work very effectively), so I tried these. And my lord do they work! 1 doesn’t work much, but 2-3 and within 12 hours I am empty. I don’t find the need to take daily any longer, so usually 2 every other day and I am good.

I bought these because they were cheaper than the name brand, but they're just not as effective. I had to take multiple at a time to get results.
