    I went to sainsburys earlier to buy some ducolax and I took two about 3.30, I have not had to use these before but am coming up to week 10 and haven't been for 5 days, this has caused me to have quite bad cramps after my packs so it was my only solution. The thing is I have never used them inmy life before so was a bit scared of using them. Has anyone else had to use them and if so are they effective and safe:sigh:

    Yes I've used them and they are fine, I usually only take one to start with as they can make you feel a little crampy.

    Hope it sorts the problem out for you hun, it can be miserable.

    Very good stuff - I only take one at bedtime. The first time it was pretty awful, now the effect is quite gentle. My counsellor said once a week is fine - better if the day before your WI... ;)

    You might just be up in the night, I always take them before going to bed, mind you, you might just be glad of the relief!

    Hope it resolves itself soon.

    I know you aren't supposed to use ducolax on Cambridge as they are too strong.

    They've been known to cause a lot of pain, so CD don't recommend them. I would have thought that the same would apply to LL.

    Dulcolax is one of the better forms of relieving the problem because it acts slowly rather than all in one hit like other forms!! It can be crampy, more so when your food intake is low but we recommend it at our pharmacy even for those on vlcd... it doesn't agree with everyone but no medication does. I've taken it on numerous occasions and not had a problem but I do know others who have... my llc also recommended it :D Hope it works for you Lola :)

    oops! You took them in the afternoon? Good luck tonight! I think they all say in their instructions to take at bedtime so they work while you are asleep.

    You may well be up in the middle of the night. A few times.

    But they do work - sometimes takes two.

    Constipation can be a problem with a vlcd... it is helped if you drink loads of water though :) (and I mean loads!!)
