Tracey, for what it's worth, Dulcolax has affected me the same way, even with two tablets (2 is recommended, up to a max of 3). It might be as Dana says, hard stool in the rectum that's blocking the way. For me, both stimulant and osmotic laxatives seem to make my colon go into spasm, there's a lot of pain and a feeling that my bowels aren't working at all, then with stimulants the diarrhoea comes little by little and it can take two days to stop coming. I don't use them any more.I've never tried the Dulcolax suppositories but glycerin suppositories usually don't do much for me, YMMV though. (I prefer Fleet enemas, personally.)Hope you find relief soon!
