i am worried after reading the side effects of Picolax on my poor health i have lost about 16 pounds in the last year'

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Just so I can be clear--what possible side effects did you read about?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

that i have a heart disease 'Asthma ; and chronic Anemia also the prolase which i feel may cause more pain to me'

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK I understand. The Picolax is basically a laxative designed to clear your colon before the test. There can be some abdominal cramping and of course loose stools and you'll need to drink plenty of water and juices after you take it. I don't think it will be very painful for you and I certainly don't think it will bother your heart disease or your asthma. I have had many patients that have needed to use it and so far they all did fine with no problems
