I Morine Barnes have taken prescribed Bisacodyl 1x5mg tablets nightly which have left me constipated vegetarian who drinks plenty of water and do exercise for constipation. I cannot talk to anybody about it and nobody can talk to me i am constipated. Dr RB Chitre GP cares I care. Dr RB Chitre said that is my prescription take it or leave it. When does this laxative work. When can I empty my bowels. Nobody want to perform the operation. Barnes 58. Donald 59, Myola 37 & Rommel Edwards 35. Graham 90.
You are very vague about why you've been prescribed this medication. If you're being prepared for a colonoscopy, you should have been given a prescription for Barium which you drink. If you have Crohns and need surgery to remove damaged section of bowel ( or large/small intestine), just buy a bottle of Magnesium Citrate which is only a couple dollars at Family Dollar, Dollar General, or any pharmacy and it's on the shelf... no prescription needed. It usually takes anywhere from 30 minutes or up to 6 hours to start working. If you suffer from daily constipation with no medical diagnosis, I highly recommend the Magnesium Citrate on a daily basis or as needed.
