QUESTION: What is the difference between ordinary laxatives and Good to Go?
ANSWER: The difference between Good to Go and ordinary laxatives, is that ordinary laxatives, such as Ex-Lax, Miralax, Dulcolax, and Senokot, are all designed to treat constipation once it has already started—once you've already developed the bloating, cramps and discomfort that goes along with constipation.
But Good to Go provides gentle prevention in the first place—that way you don't have to worry about the other side effects associated with laxatives, such as cramping and diarrhea, from occurring at inopportune times. Prevent the problem before it starts—and you're good to go!
