Reviews for Gentle Laxative

For Constipation "I took this “gentle laxative” around 10pm to help my constipation. Usually I have pretty regular bowels and used this laxative after almost all other remedies failed (an enema didn’t even work). This is supposed to take 6-12 hours to work. I woke up around 2am with the worst abdominal cramping I’ve ever had and I couldn’t stop running to the bathroom. An hour later and the pain and nausea was so intense I was on the toilet and vomiting into a trash can. This medicinal death trap did its job by emptying me out on both ends. I finally passed out from exhaustion and woke up with completely liquid BMs and cold sweats, blurred vision feeling like I was going to faint while on the toilet. It’s the day after and I still feel sick. I do not recommend this medication. Stick to a home remedy or something that is not a stimulant if you must but I would rather be constipated. This medicine is going straight to the bin."

For Constipation "I took 3 pills of the womans gentle laxative and I am having the worst stomach pain and feeling like I'm going to vomit at the same time. It comes and goes and I am hoping this won't last all day."

For Constipation "Best to take laxatives on a [if can] empty stomach in the morning, for faster & better effect, and at every [if you want] "end of the month" [safer].Not everyday, because of serious [unsafe] side effects.Drink 8-9 cups of water to stay hydrated and to keep the bowel flowing out completely.Have plenty of tissue and make sure you are close enough to the bathroom"
