How often can one take a laxative?

Mr G
You should follow directions given on this one. It is unhealthy if you are having to rely on them to have a bowel movement and also as you may be washing out nutrients that you have not yet absorbed into your bowel.

I have heard though that it is quite good to flush your system out once in a while.

whenever you need relief from constipation and never any more than it says on the box

**** knows.

don't take them to diet, calorie control and exersise is the only real way of loosing weight and not harming your body.

Read the packet if you are consipated for ages then try uping the fibre in your diet. If you have a well balanced diet and still have trouble then go to your doctor.

I find a strong coffee works as the best ever laxative.

You would be far better to add fruit or roughage to your diet, using laxatives on a regular basis can affect your digestive system so that you are unable to manage without them.

It should only be 1 every 12 hours if necessary

The more you take and the more often you take them they will become less effective. I currently have to take 25 at a time, twice aweek as the bowel is now dead. Seek other methods to achieve the same effect and don't get addicted

depends on how many times you need to sh1t

As often as you want to poop

Follow the directions. These can be habit forming so be careful not to over do it. See your doctor if the problem continues.

Depends on the type of laxative and how bad the constipation is!
Once or twice a day usually

laxatives are really only a quick fix. if taken too often your body will rely on them. eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables daily in your diet will do the same thing. Also drink plenty of water. you shouldnt need laxitives if you have a good diet.

Read the label on the packaging it comes in!
