    I had the same problem. I used a combination of equate and miralax. And by combination i mean i took equate first...no results then bought miralax and it still took a couple of days but that did the trick. I actually had a doctors appointment scheduled but cancelled when i got relief. I scheduled an appointment because my stomach was cramping pretty bad. I would see a doctor if you don't get relief soon.

    Should I take 2 more of the phillips' pills today? Worried cause the back of the book says: Stop use and talk to your doctor if you need to use a laxative for more than one week, or have rectal bleeding or no bowel movement after using this product. These could be signs of a serious condition.

    If REALLY want to go within 30mins to an hour, try Magnesium Citrate it's a saline laxative. It's no joke! You will be running! Literally and figuratively. It's in a glass bottle and at your major pharmacies (CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens..etc.). You can drink the entire bottle (adult dosage) and it comes in different flavors, citrus, grape and cherry. I cleanse 2 a week with it and it doesn't cause any cramping. Just stay near a ladies room because it doesn't wait for time. Good luck!

    I just started these pills 6 days ago, but on day 5, I had had enough of not using the bathroom. Hadnt went in over 5 days. So I bought some post raisin bran, digestive health. and ate that for breakfast with ff milk, It did the trick in an hour. Not sure if it will help you, since you have tried lax, but maybe if you eat that a few mornings, you will get back on track with things? Just a thought.

    For me, I swear by that 3 Ballerina Diet Tea (natural green leaf brand); it can be purchased at small mom&pop Korean stores, and can also be ordered online at Amazon .com - I drink it about 3 times a week or so, seep the teabag for 6-7 minutes, add a couple packs of sweetener, then enjoy in the evening before bedtime (no caffeine) - by morning, success!! Although it's not a laxative, it does state on the box that it generates extra bowel movements, and that statement is definitely true!! No need to suffer gurlfriend; good luck!!

    If the phillips you are taking are just the caplets, it's just 500 mg of magnesium per pill if you have the plain caplets. If so, it should say take 2-4 caplets at bedtime or througout the day. Since you only took two one time, I would suggest taking 3-4 more tonight and drink lots and lots of liquids. Magnesiums job is to pull water into the stool, so it needs water to work properly. This should help you have a bowel movement tomorrow. I usually do this and have a strong coffee beverage in the morning and it works like magic. Of course I DO NOT take my phen when I have the huge coffee. Caffine and phen mixed would make me WAY to jittery. Hope this helps.

    Did someone say POOP>>>>>>>>?????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dulcolax works for me, almost too well. It makes me cramp too much. If you take some start off by taking one, the box says you can take up to three, well that almost killed me...

    Magnesium Citrate, it is cheap, easy to use and works fast..within an hour or so..just do it when you know you'll be near the can cause you don't know how long you are going to poop for......

    You can take a bunch of fiber and wait, but that usually makes me MORE bloated until it takes effect.

    Diet teas that everyone mentioned are good, but kind of unpredictable. We don't know when they are going to work....if at all. You don't want to bust a gut in the middle of grand central station or anything...........

    Im soooo glad somebody posted on this topic

    Ive had the same prob since Ive been taking the phen, almost to the point I was ready to quit taking them.

    I dont have any urge to go at all....I dont even realize Ive not gone until the hubs asks if Ive had any success LOLOLOLOL

    Ive tried straight out laxatives and even though I got one day of relief (at work at that!!) I didnt want to keep taking them every 3 days or so. I also tried just a stool softener and all I got from that was some serious gas...if MY gas was the price of regular gas...Id be rich and famous!! So I chucked that idea. Then benefiber came into the picture. I cant remember to put the stuff in my water, so I had to chuck that idea too. Tried the fiber route with the food I eat...still just gas.

    Tonight I bought some Miralax after being recommended by a pharmacist. Already downed a capful of that. Now just the wait.

    Hopefully it works...and soon!!

    Keep me in your prayers that it DOESNT kick in and start working while Im at work!! I couldnt imagine having to go through all that at work, especially being the only woman there, and the owner is just a laid back hillbilly. He would get the biggest kick out of it and tell everybody including potential customers!!

    I reccomend Mirolax.

    it's tasteless and doesn't cause gas or that urgency feeling.
