  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for constipation)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 10 g/15 mL Twice daily
Advice & Tips: Gentle - maybe a little too gentle if on pain killers like Codine. Need to drink lots of water, but even then I didn't get much relief. I found it was best taken regularly with a Glycerol Suppository first thing in the morning. That broke the log jam after 7 days!
