    I agree Tareka! I will stick with the tea too. I found if it doesn't thoroughly clean you out I would steep the tea in 12 ounces of water instead of 6. I did it last night and this morning I went right to the bathroom.

    I tend to get really bloated close to TOM. I took it a week ago and it really helped decrease my PMS symptoms. I tend to gain about 5 pounds during TOM which is very discouraging even though I know it will go away after my cycle. But the mc kept me from gaining that five. It's not cute though. You do run to the bathroom a lot. I think I must've gone at least ten times. Like everytime I sat down I was getting back up. And it comes out like a rain shower. Your stomach rumbles like a valcano. At least mine did. I probably won't take it again until next month if I swell up like a elephant around TOM. Other than that I agree with everyone else. I woudn't use it unless I REALLY needed to have movement....and I did!!!

    I would only recommend it in extreme cases of constipation.

    This is the "nurse's view": It's a fairly strong stimulant laxative, and can cause cramping. Plus, if abused, it can lead to electrolyte disturbances and dependence. It's not really meant to be used as a weight loss aid.

    That being said, I've used it twice while I've been on Phentermine. But I felt it was a crucial, life or death (or at least I felt that way...5 days and 6 days with no poop!!) issue. I drank it down (YUCK!) and about two to three hours later I started going. My husband died laughing every time he saw me jump up and do the stiff-legged run to the bathroom, which was about every 10 minutes for a couple of hours. After that, it was all good. I have never been so relieved to poop in my whole life! I actually have a bottle in the fridge 'just in case' I get backed up on this round of Phen.

    If you're just looking to keep the plumbing flowing freely, I would just try to increase my water intake and take OTC docusate sodium (a stool softener) or Milk of Magnesia. Start off with two tablespoons nightly and once things 'get going' adjust your dose up or down as needed.

    If you find something that works please let me know. I agree with you about the super dieter's tea. It good the first two times for me but I need something to completely clean me out.

    I've used this twice and it worked great! took about 3hours to work. I drank the full 10oz bottle. No cramping or anything. I only used it when I was desperate.

    i have used it in the past when i was really backed up, but it isn't the kind of thing that you want to take all the time.....It is kind of extreme and just like laxatives if you abuse it then your body will forget how to go on its own..........

    I keep a bottle on hand for emergencies, and in the past I have used it once every three weeks or so but the last time it didnt' work so well so i stopped.

    I really recommend taking some kind of colon cleanse, it helps to keep everything moving..or m aybe even Colace every day to keep things soft.
    I did it!! Reached goal and have been here for quite a while thanks to low carb eating and working out like crazy! Phen didn't work for me, but that isn't to say that there aren't other ways. God bless all of you!

    I haven't used it personally but on that thread "Woot! For anyone needing to poo" or something like that. There's several on there that used it with luck!

    I think it's pretty cheap alternative to try...so I say try it and see what it does for ya! I think my mom's used it with some luck...but her system is totally messed up and lots of things don't work the greatest.

    Good luck! And I believe most stores have it...target, walmart, pharmacies, etc.
