Novi-lax alternatives

Until the novi-lax is no longer back ordered try one of these alternatives:


1. Senekot-S
This is a gentle laxative and stool softener (in a pill format), used as standard treatment in all US and Canadian hospitals.
We recommend that the Dieters purchase the genetic version (“i.e.: Walgreens, PVC, Shoppers Drug Mart), which will most likely cost 50% less.  Dieters should follow the instructions as indicated on the bottle.

Or

2. Magnesium Citrate “Citrate of magnesia”  (liquid format)
This is a very inexpensive product that comes in a 10 oz bottle. As for the Senekot-S, the Dieter should follow the instructions as indicated on the bottle.

Most people here have been happy with the Senokot-S, but here are some other alternatives: Phillips Caplets (magnesium oxide), Dulcolax (bisacodyl 5mg), Fleet's Enema (for immediate relief). These are the main ones in the U.S.  

The Dieters may as well go to any pharmacy and ask the pharmacist for a recommendation, but the above will likely be recommended.

Hope this helps!
