  • It really just depends on if they were constipated in the first place and the type of laxative. Painkillers and the drugs they give you to knock you out for surgery cause constipation.

    After surgery I was so constipated 2 days later the scale said I was ten pounds heavier. Now some of that was probably water weight but I had to drink two bottles of magnesium citrate before and relief came. It doesn't give you forced cramps like some other laxatives. It is a more natural method.

  • I ever took 2 pills before I slept.
    when it kicked in I could hold in my bm around 30 minutes while I sat in my car.
    But if I walk or run I think I can hold in around 5-10 minutes before I go (otherwise, I have to poop in my pants).

  • Depends on several factor (metabolism, food you ingested, and the dosage of laxative). On average, I'd say about 20-45 minutes.
