How long does Ex-Lax take to kick in? Is it going to make me have to go all day?

In brief: Ex Lax

Ex Lax usually leads to a bowel movement in 6 to 12 hours.
Diarrhea is a potential side effect from Sennoside laxatives.

Chronic sennoside use can lead to dependency. There are great treatment options available through your doctor.
