Maybe: Dulcolax is stimulant laxative. Sometimes osmotic laxatives, like lactulose work better. Another treatment is citroma. If you symptoms do not improve see a doctor.

Agree w Dr. Crespin: Did you use oral Dulcolax? Dulcolax suppository is an option that may work quickly. Enema is also an option.
