    I was just wondering because Iv taken them 3 days in a row now.

    Also (tmi here) when you do go, should it be green, mine is :(:eek:

    If so is it because of the laxative, Im taking Dulcolax.

    Yes the iron in the packs will give you green poo!!

    I mean not kermit the frog green but certainly green tinted.

    Perfectly normal and nothing to worry about at all.

    Dont think taking them 3 days running can be good for you. You will naturally not need to go so often on CD/LL cos you are taking in no waste so unless you havent been for a week i wouldnt worry too much. Also wont help your weight loss cos when your body expels a la laxatives, it grabs hold of any fluid you take in and retains it. Youll probably have a small gain for a couple of days afterwards.

    I take 2 dulco-lax perles once a week, others only need 1.
