I’m not the smartest person in the world. Far from it. But since I carry an iPhone, and have access to Google (and know how to use it properly), everyone considers me a genious. They don’t need to know my secrets.
So, according to the pico-salax website http://www.pico-salax.ca/faqs.html
When should PICO-SALAX® start working (onset of action)?
In general, you should expect loose bowel movements to start at any time (on average 3-4 hours) after taking a dose of PICO-SALAX®. Please ensure that you have access to a toilet at all times following each dose, until the effects wear off. Please note: Studies show the onset of action will vary from person to person and can range from 1 up to 10 hours.
OK, that’s good news considering I decided to come into work today. WARNING! I am one of those “lucky people” that lives less than 2km from work. I would not suggest taking powerful laxatives at work! I can leave my work and be home in two minutes. Consider if you get stuck in traffic for an hour with a colon cleansing solution going through your body! Not a good idea!
