In brief: See answer

Everyone responds to meds differently and it depends on whether you have issues with emptying or if your stools are hard.
Dulcolax is a stimulant laxative so it may not work if your stools are hard. Increasing dietary fiber and water intake will help with this. Hope this helps!
