i take laxatives kind of as a punishment to myself. they don't inherently make you lose but if you aren't eating obviously pooping is going to be hard, they're nice for that. start at the lowest, work your way up to the highest, then start over again. for me it's 1,2,2,2,3,1,2,2.... so on. know your body. also be careful- messing yourself in public is not an experience you need. stay safe, sweetie.

Laxatives are pretty scary.

It makes you feel like you're doing something proactive, but really, it just messes with your stomach and can cause more health issues. So many.

It's really bad when you can't poop without laxatives...


I would recommend taking a laxative tea occasionally, but hell, I'm a hypocrite. xD

They really do fuck with your system,  not worth it. If you're really constipated, bearing in mind that means you actually ate something, drink a lax tea or eat some prunes. That'll help

Do they work in what sense?


For weight loss? No, because by the time the food reaches the bowels you've already absorbed all the calories. Laxatives just make you feel "empty" by ridding the body of water and food weight, both of which will pass in a few days anyway.


You're better off trying to get more fiber into your diet (adding oat fiber to foods helps a ton) or using more gentle alternatives if you have to.

They don't actually make you lose any weight. You'll be temporarily lighter because you've gotten rid of all that crap sitting in there...but no actual weight loss. 

Also they make you feel like literal shit. Stomach cramps galore. They gave me stomach cramps so bad that I threw up and almost passed out... fun times. 

Yeah, I wouldn't recommend them...

Laxatives give you the worst fucking gas cramps ever. Holy fucking shot stay away unless you want to feel like rats are chewing a hole through your stomach.

Be careful with laxatives, I got immune to them, I could take 20-25 easily with no results. A few years ago I overdosed on laxatives and ever since, even just one will make me throw up. I had to change my eating and do excersises therapy because it became impossible to go unless bowels where liquid,
I suggest lots of water, and wet fibre (carrots, celery, and sprouts all have wet fibre and low carbs) even some abdominal excersises will help you to go easier.

I honestly advise to never take it if you can!!


It's addictive, and I used to take up to 100 for it to actually have an effect.

I used to abuse laxatives and my digestive system is permanently fucked up. i am either constipated for 4 days straight or get extreme diarrhea and never in between. it dehydrates you and can cause ulcers. It also doesn’t really help you lose that much weight

I would advise not taking them at all if i were you. they get addictive quickly and it’s not really worth it
