You don't have to feel worse before you feel better. Full strength of regular Phillips' in half the dose! Great taste.

  1. Very effective

    The taste isn’t appealing, but the results were. I took a full dose, and used the restroom 5 times afterwards. I feel a lot better!

  2. don't over do this
    Posted by Unknown on 5th Jan 2015

    just like the other reviewer, i didn't notice that this was the concentrated kind. i took 2 cups; with regular phillips 2 cups would work in about 4.5 hours. i gave my wife a ride to work thinking that it wouldn't work for 2.5 hours and it started working on the way back home-only 2 hours after i took it. the taste isn't as tolerable as the regular kind and there's no cramping like there is with dulcolax but unfortunately it just worked very strong & quickly.

  3. read the fine print
    Posted by Unknown on 27th Sep 2011

    i purchased this since i was really constipated. at the time the bottle said "concentrated" in only very small print. hopefully that has been corrected now. i thought i was buying the regular strength brand since i didn't see "concentrated" on the bottle. since i was really uncomfortable i took a very large dose, not noticing that this was the extra strength variety. the good news was that even with the accidental overdose i didn't experience any cramping and had results in about 2 hours or so. the down side was that i could not stop going to the bathroom the rest of the day. i even went once in the middle of the night and a few times the following morning. moral is to read the fine print and follow the dosing instructions exactly.
