Normally, eight ounces of the mixed solution are consumed every 10 minutes until four liters are consumed or bowel movements are watery and clear. Before taking the laxative, you should talk to your healthcare provider if you have inflammatory bowel disease, intestinal blockage, or difficulty swallowing.
