Hi All,

I have been given Laxido from the doc as he thinks I am quite badly constipated due to abdominal pain and struggling to go the toilet.

I have now taken 2 sachets and nothing has yet happened, does anyone know how long it can take to start working?

    Thanks for the replies, maybe they will start to work soon then.

    When they do work is it a case you need to get to the toilet quickly or is it not that bad? Just a little concerned as I work in an office lol.

    Hi sarah

    Does it not give an indication on the leaflet that cam with the meds of when they are likely to start working? have a look!! I find a nice hot cup of strong tea does the trick wishes....

      Hi Lilian,

      No it doesnt say sad I've only taken two sachets so far but I thought normally this type of stuff works within a few hours, maybe I will take an extra sachet tonight and see what happens!!

    Be patient .. about 2 days is average but it obviously depends on the dosage you have been told to use.

    I started on 2 a day but found it was a bit to much so dropped down to one and touch wood all is ok.
