Will I still make more bowel movements or will that be the only on. Should I have taken two as a few hours earlier I was making little bowel movements but with severe pain and my butt throbbing
Dulcolax is mainly taken for constipation. The recommended adult dose is 1 to 3 tablets as needed.
It's hard to predict what will happen next as it will depend on how constipated you are and how your body reacts to Dulcolax. Stomach cramps, and discomfort are common side effects .
Dulcolax tablets generally produce their effects within 6 to 12 hours so I would suggest waiting a little while longer before taking another.
