I don't know what is best but while in the hospital they were giving them to me 1 at 8am and 1 at 8pm. I've adjusted my times a little but I continue to take them 1 in the morning and one in the evening. It works for me.

I also need to be good about getting up and having breakfast (usually a bowl of raisin bran) and then it wll works about a half hour after breakfast.

Bedtime is the best time to take stool softeners or laxatives. If need they can be taken 2x a day - usually in the am and at bedtime. Take care

Hi,
My Dr told me to take 2 Senokot at night before bed, and that worked perfect. This was definitely an area that was awful for me, as I was not used to that, so I was thrilled that his first suggestion worked perfect. Good luck...
