  • Don't know how long it takes but it will make you feel awful and if you took it because you want to go into labor there is no scientific proof that it works.

  • Just sit and wait, if you took enough; your tummy will become upset and you will have to go to the bathroom. Keep in mind, you might be there several times.

  • Before surgeries they used to make me use it the night before so I don't think it's going to work quickly. I would have suggested an enema that works fast and it's over and no cramping

  • You'd be better off taking a good-quality probiotic if you have tummy issues. Not the activia or other junk with supposed pro- or pre-biotics, but a powder-filled capsule that needs to be kept refrigerated.
