This little pill is more of an electronic gadget than a "traditional pill". It is designed for the sad folks who have chronic constipation and works by running through the digestive track vibrating along the way. About six hours after the pill is swallowed it will be in the digestive tract,this is when the vibrating starts.
The vibrating pill causes the intestines to begin contractions to help, well, move the poop along. I would imagine this is a much safer alternative to laxatives and enemas. Patients who have tried the vibrating constipation pill reported their weekly bowel movements doubled and had less painful poops.
