5.0 out of 5 stars very effective, but be warned!! 20 April 2012
I used this stuff once because I had not been able to "drop the kids off at the pool" for a few days. I then saw an advert on telly about a woman who was feeling "bloated and uncomfortable" due to constipation. "Ooooooh", thought I, "I'm feeling a bit bloated and uncomfortable". Then she had some of this stuff, danced in a meadow for a bit in her dreams, "I like meadows", thought I. Then at the end she got "gentle relief in the morning and enjoyed her day", after dumping a load of leaves out of her handbag.

Understanding the metaphor, I got me some of this stuff, took it before bed and looked forward to my "gentle relief" in the morning.

Then it all went wrong.

I didn't wake up in the morning, I was woken up in the middle of the night. I had crippling stomach pains, an unholy bout of flatulance and a sense of pending doom. I legged it to the bathroom. What followed could not, by any sense of the imagination, be described as "gentle relief". It was the most violent expulsion I have ever experienced in my life and left me very sweaty. It even woke the kids up.

To be honest though, I gave them to my mum and it works fine for her, and I wasn't constipated any more. I give the product 5* for effectiveness and the advert 1* for lying to me.

Good laxative - just be careful how much to use. Very effective - at least in my case. Would buy again when I have used these.

5.0 out of 5 stars The dyno rod of the laxative world 30 Sep 2013
Having had a sigmoidoscopy last week which failed because the moviprep, err, didnt move me and still having blocked plumbing four days after and with a colonoscopy looming ii decided to bring the big guns out and go for Senokot Max.

After all, although i would be getting another bowel cleanse i pondered that it would not be coducive to harmonious doctor patient relations if i was to evacuate on the doctor.

Took half a tablet at 8pm and then a few hours later, echoing the words of the song to do one thing a day that scares you, i decided to be brave and take the other half.

Well, i too had seen the adverts on tv and envisaged floating in green meadows with sunlight reflecting off the green grass whilst i floated along, smiling and happy knowing my constipation nights were over and my colon was glowing with happiness.

Unfortunately, just like the review by the Pink Shirt Platypus, the advertising did not quite match reality.

At 8.30 the first cramps hit and i was off to the toilet, was very pleased with my performance. All i needed was a round of applause and a lollipop for doing so well and my happiness would be complete.

Unfortunately 15 minutes later round two started. It was at this juncture i discovered that i have a remarkable talent, perhaps i could consider proposing it as a new olympic sport.

I discovered i had the ability to reach the toilet in 5 seconds flat, with legs closed and one hand over bottom.

After round two, several sentences popped into mind as i pondered my latest delivery. Sentences such as, "Wow, i never seen one that long before", "holy cow, where did all that come from", "I think i'm going to need more toilet roll".

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic - did the job 20 Jun 2014
By Lisa
Very glad I DIDN'T read the reviews below before I tried this - would put me right off!

I had been congested since Monday when on Thursday night I tried x2 regular strength Senekot. Nothing happened. Still bloated. Very frustrated.

On Friday morning I went back to Boots and bought Senekot 'max strength'. At 9am I took double the recommended does (2 tablets instead of 1).

Immediately after taking the tablets I decided to browse the product reviews online to see what I could expect from the results, and was super shocked to read some of the stories / experiences posted below! Reviewers seem to have had many dramatic experiences which left them running for the toilet / on the loo for hours. I actually began to dread the time when the tablets would kick-in. Especially since I had doubled the recommended dose. The problem was, I was due to take a long car journey with my boyfriend that evening where I wouldn't have had access to a bathroom (about the time when the tablets should begin to work) and I started to panic. I thought - oh my god this cannot happen to me. It would be humiliating to suffer the results while stuck in the car......

Luckily, what happened was nothing like that. At 4pm I felt mild stomach cramping. I popped to the loo about 3 or 4 times that hour. The first instance the a solid lump and the others were watery remainders (sorry for being graphic!). It didn't smell to pleasant - but it was nothing like the explosion I was expecting. I guess different bodies & systems all react differently.

All in all, I would say the tablets did a great job. I took double the strength which was perfect for me. Next time I would plan my timings better.
