Is there any side effect of any type of laxative or pills used for constipation or piles?

I have never heard off any and I have taken my share, I would do an enema if its bad, they have no side effects. But if you just need something for a little help take a stool softener.
Good luck.

i use miralax every morning but it's only a softner,i have found that drinking plenty of water helps some.

I'm sure they have to have some but I've never experienced any. Of course they would list abdominal cramps and diarrhea as a side effect. lolol... One warning though, there is a question of taking Milk of Magnesia if on dialysis.

Thats funny I don't think of those as side affect's, that's just what happens. LOL

They list everything on a drug. Would you believe a side effect of insulin (for diabetes) listed is low blood sugar.

I believe it. Everyone is so busy protecting themselves from frivolous lawsuits - like having to warn that coffee is hot! Ridiculous, but somebody made a lot of money before they listed it as such!
