Lax-A-Day - 238 Grams

Lax-A-Day is an osmotic laxative. That means that it works with your body to retain water in your stool, softening it so that it can move more easily through your system. This process gently increases the frequency of your bowel movements.

Dosage (adults > 18 years):

A single dose is 17 grams and should be taken once a day or as directed by your physician. Lax-A-Day® should be used for one week or less or as directed by a physician.


This product is supplied with a dosing cup marked to contain 17 grams of powder when filled to the indicated line. Pour 17 grams (about 1 heaping tablespoon) of powder into the dosing cup. Stir the powder in a cup (250 mL) of water, juice, soda, coffee, or tea until completely dissolved. Drink the solution. Treatment for 2 to 4 days may be required to produce a bowel movement.
