Because I eat plenty of fruit, vegetables, and salad, I rarely have a problem going to the toilet. If my routine changes, say on a week when I am on vacation, I can become irregular. This is when I turn to Dulcolax Laxative coated tablets. I find that the box of 10 is big enough for me. You can take anywhere from 1 to 3 tablets a day, but as I do not use them on a regular basis, one will always work for me. When I start my holiday I can go 3 days without having a stool, and this is when I will take a Dulcolax, before going to bed. The little orange tablet will either wake me up to go, or after my first cup of coffee, I have to have a bowel movement. Once this has happened, I don't normally have to take them again, until my next vacation. These little pills are comfort coated so they should not upset your stomach. Always be sure to swallow the pill and not chew it. Do not take it within one hour of taking an antacid or milk. It states on the box that this product usually works within 6 to 12 hours of taking it. There are other warnings so please check them out before taking this product. It always works for me, but as I mentioned, it probably is because I only take one on odd occasions. If you need them on a regular basis then I can't tell you how well they would work. Effectiveness As I only take them a few times a year, they always work for me. Ease of Use Just swallow a pill with water. Immediacy Works within 6 to 12 hours. I take one at bedtime, and normally go after my morning coffee.
