Before I take this stuff to get the pipes flowing again, is there anything I should know? Like should I make sure I'm home and the bathroom is free for a few hours? Does it hit you right away or take time? Do you suggest a small dose at first?

It's not an immediate relief. It always took about 8 hours to start on me and I had to take 2 or 3 pills. I think it depends on your body and how backed up you are.

its not like a laxitive, its more of a softener so it will be easier to go. milk of magnesia would be something you have to stay home after taking....that stuff works!!!

It's just a stool softener, so it wont give you super poop. It will, however, pull water from the rest of your body to your intestine, so you need to drink more water to keep hydrated. I don't recommend taking it before bed for the above reason.

It will only help you poop if you're having trouble due to poops being too hard, but it wont actually cause you to poop.
