Each laxative works differently. Adults and children over 12 may need fewer tablets or caplets of Correctol to get the same effect as more tablets or caplets of another brand. We recommend you start with one Correctol tablet or caplet and take with water. If one tablet or caplet does not produce desired results, then try two or three Correctol tablets or caplets daily. Do not take more than 3 tablets or caplets of Correctol daily.
