another Colace question...trying to optimize perfomance ;)

Okay, so I talked with Beth (Beth B.) and realized I needed 3 Colace per day. What I'm wondering is if it matters when I take them? Currently, due to the need to spread out a million pills (you all know what I mean), I'm taking all the Colace at once. Will I get better "performance" if I spread out the Colace throughout the day?

I always took them at the same time, usually at night, so I could poop in the am, I dont know about spacing them, however, keep in mind that I ended up in the hospital with a stool impaction, so maybe you shouldnt take my advice on the subject :oops:

I take all mine together at bedtime, because otherwise they'd get lost in the confusion of all the other pills. That seems to work, but I've never tried spacing them out to compare.

I spaced them, but had better results with them all together. Also, if you can get ANY fiber in your diet, that can help.
