"I tend to have bowel movements every other day and a week before starting my period is hard for me to go. I tried the Dulcolax suppositories and they work like a charm. I insert the suppository and about 15 minutes later I feel the natural urge to go and I go smooooothly! Yes there is some mild mild cramping but it is not uncomfortable. It burns a little bit and it keeps working for about an hour after so plan ahead. I definitely recommend this product."

"I have not had a soft BM in 6 months. Stool softeners don’t work... I tried the suppository and my stomach was cramping within 10 minutes. It says try to keep it in for 20 and I couldn’t. It was at 13 minutes I had to go. There was so much that came out. I feel a whole lot better now."

"I took the bisacodyl suppository yesterday as I was constipated for two days and had pain in my back. I had only put it in five minutes and I was in a terrible state. I thought I was going to pass out with the cramps I got, my anal area got very sore and I only emptied my bowels a little. I personally would never ever use it again. I ended up in the emergency department I was that bad. Want did this happen to you?????"

"I tried Dulcolax suppository 10mg as for the past several weeks I have been having constipation/hard stools which has left me feeling pretty yucky. Within 5 min I had to go and though I think if I had held for longer than 10 min it might have cleared more, but it was nice to not feel pain when going to the toilet. Stomach felt bit uncomfortable and a bit of burning for about an hour then it passed."

"I think the Dulcolax suppositorys are horrible. That cause the worst pain in lower stomach, it's the longest time sitting on the toilet... Usually I would use Fleet Enema. Which is great. Painful but well worth it.... Use the liquid Enema. I'll never use this again. The enema is like $3 for a 2-pack this stuff is $10 for a five-pack of suppositories. This is crazy"

"I thought getting over Covid was bad, this takes the case. Nauseated with burning in my rectum. Light headed and horrible cramping. I thought I was giving birth out my butt. I had hemorrhoids under control but the pressure made my bottom completely flip out. I would never ever use this again."
