    Generally they say it's 8-12 hours before they take affect. So it depends what time you took them last night. Personally I've found they take around 24 hours to work for me - that's if they work at all which they often don't!

    Hi natasha1974, I did exactly the same last night! Was feeling the same as you so thought I'd take something to get things moving - took a senekot max strength last night around 9pm and still nothing today! :-( I'm not convinced they work as I've taken them before and not really noticed them working.

    ive tried senokot before, and i dont think they actually work.
    sorry you're feeling bloated. maybge try drinking some water or try something like prunes, fruit etc.

    make sure you have plenty of water to push those scan bran through or you may get a bit clogged up!

    BRILLIANT. So I am not theonly one who finds themselves getting oober bloated on this eating plan.

    I had two nights last week where I thought I was gonna pop. Needed to let off so much but can't bring myself to do a minute long parp infront of my fella! I didn't really find anything to help, think I might have just let off in my sleep and woke up wind free!

    for the first few weeks i think everyone gets bloating due to the body getting used to a new diet it does wear off but i get the odd few days every now and again dont think i drink enough water. Anyways i had jacket spud and beans for lunch and then a brisk walk home from work an hour ago am feeling lots better now ;)

    I was getting concerned about my lack if movement I was considering going to my GP so it's not just me then! Is it due to the limited amount of fibre (or am I getting it wrong and fibre bungs you up) in the diet plan that causes this? I had a SW curry and it took 4 days for anything to happen which made me feel sluggish and bloated
