  • It is a stool softener not a laxative so it will take some time, most of the time the bottle says to take 2 or 3 for the first dose. It may take up to 24 hours..

  • It's not a stool softener. It is a bowel stimulant.

  • Sorry anon 23 but dulcolax has 4 or 5 different products and the MOST popular is the softener.. So OP, which one did you take? That will give you a better idea of how fast it will work.
