I think it's safe to say that dulcolax is the preferred lax of bulimics everywhere. I know that others like Metamucil and miralax don't target the digestive system in the right way, but I can't tell the difference between sennosides and bisacodyl besides them just being different substances. is dulcolax really the only lax that works the way I want it to or do sennosides do the same thing?


god forbid I exercise a little...

I take miralax it’s an osmotic laxative and much gentler on the digestive tract. I would never reccomend stimulants to anyone. I had a doctor try telling me I should take them and I refused she was aware of my history of past laxative abuse and I would not wish that on my worst enemy.

I don’t trust dulcolax anymore. Aside from allergic reaction (swollen face) I passed out multiple times with it which should have been a sign to stop taking it but at the time I was completely disconnected from reality. Should also mention I’m not the only one and quite a few people said they experienced extreme pain and vomiting among other symptoms when they abused it. Also syncope is one of the rare symptoms but it does happen, it happened to me.
I recommend senna. It’s less painful to me and never made me throw up or pass out. But wouldn’t recommend taking more than 10 of any laxatives ever anyway. The pain isn’t worth it.

dulcolax works well but it makes me feel awful plus it usually wakes me up in the middle of the night. lactulose is my go-to though (highly recommend), it feels safer bc haven't experienced bad side effects from it whatsoever
