I took two pills last night at 6pm and it's now 1pm the next day and still having diarrhea and cramping when will it wear off? .
Dulcolax is a stimulant laxative used to relieve occasional constipation. It takes approximately 6 to 8 hours to produce its effects. The medication is metabolized in the body and roughly 1/2 is gone in 16 hours with 1/2 the remaining medicine gone after another 16 hours. The diarrhea effect is a listed side effect and varies with each individual.
As the medication level drops the stimulant effect will diminish. Some bulking food items like bananas, apples or pasta may help slow the diarrhea naturally.
