i took it and now have diarrhea and stomach pain. When should it all go away? My X-rays showed I was backed up a lot.
If you have not seen a doctor already (for the diarrhea and pain), do. A laxative should not result in diarrhea or pain. Its intention is to start things moving, period.
Diarrhea can be serious, even life-threatening. When you take a medication to help with a blockage, and it over works you, that's not the desired result.
Hopefully you are well and things have settled down. If not, call a doctor now, please.
