Q: Can my kid take this daily, like a supplement, or is that not recommended?

submitted by KidAce - 5 years ago
  • A: Great question! The Pedia-Lax Children's Saline Laxative Tablets are meant only to be used for occasional constipation, not to help with daily regularity like a supplement. If a daily supplement is needed, we do recommend consulting with your child's pediatrician for their recommendations. If you have any further questions, please contact us toll-free at 1-866-255-6960.

  • A: Our GI Dr said this is okay to give my son as soon as I see he isn't having a bowel movement which is just about every few days. I give half a tablet at a time, sometimes 2-3 a day and within the next 2-3 days he is regular again.

Q: Like gummies or just chewable

submitted by Bko - 6 years ago
  • A: These are chewable. A bit chalky, so I always give my kids water with them.

Have a toddler who hasn’t pooped in a few days and is fussy and uncomfortable because of it? I did too. Get your potty, or your pull ups and wipes (and your air freshener) ready. Those pipes will be CLEANED out, my friends. It brought so much fast relief to my little one, even if I’ll spend the next several days compulsively washing my hands convinced I still have poop on them.

Be careful- I thought this didn’t work at first for my 2 year old. but then my daughter ended up having horrible diarrhea for two days- wiping her now is terrible, she is so sore. I won’t be giving this to her again, the relief was not gentle for us.

I don’t ever write reviews but decided to leave this one because I was going back and fourth trying to decide which medicine to give to my (5 almost 6yo) daughter. She has not made a bowl movement in 3 days and was in a lot of pain. We tried magnesium- didn’t work. Then decided to try these and if it didn’t work by tomorrow morning I was going to try the suppository. Well I had her drink a cup of apple juice on the way to target and picked up my order and gave it to her instantly (5:10pm). I gave her 4 and then another one around 6:40 maybe? Just because she was in so much pain I felt so bad. She drank some water with it also. 7:05pm she finally was able to pass a bowl movement! She feels so much better already! We’ll see how the rest of the night goes if she goes anymore but so glad she has some relief! Also to add: she loved the flavor! I’m not sure why this had negative reviews just because of the flavor. It even smells good. If your kid doesn’t like tums- I would assume they wouldn’t like this as it *looks* similar in my opinion but I never tried it.

My twin daughters have had some constipation issues and these seem to help relieve some of the discomfort. This medicine does help them go more often, just helps the movement a little softer.

You know a product is good when your kid wants to take the medicine. Would be nice to have different flavors to choose from, or maybe a mix of different flavors (like Tums and Flintstone vitamins do). With that said, the watermelon is still a hit with my little guy who has tummy troubles.

Tried this for my 2 yr old who was backed up during potty training but she did not like the flavor or I think it was more of the texture it felt like granular. I have to crush and dissolve it in water and give her. She went the next day after second dose.

To any future parent who is potty training their toddler and reading reviews to help their little one pass a poop- these work great! Even after eating fiber rich foods all day, she was holding it in. After about an hour this stuff worked like a charm!

It took about an hour and a half to work. I’ve used the liquid bulb but it feels more invasive. Although the liquid bulb works immediately we wanted to try this one out. We were about to go buy the liquid bulb because my two year old was just sweating and looked so uncomfortable. As soon as I texted my spouse to go buy the other one she went potty! As soon as she was done she was back to running around acting like nothing ever happened.
