laxatives work like this - they make you shit. the end.
you dont lose fat, just water.
anyone can buy them from the supermarket or chemist.

Like they say, they won't help you lose weight, if you'd like to go more often you should probably avoid a quick fix like stimulant laxatives. Just increase the amount of water you drink, eat a lot of fruit/vegetables/oatmeal/fiber cereal, and you'll be fine.
I would not recommend them for weight loss or even just regularity. They only make you lose water weight which gets replenished as soon as you even drink something, so it's easy to get into a cycle of taking them everyday.
This isn't really the community for those kind of questions, but I think it's better that you ask someone anywhere instead of going a head and getting yourself hurt.

if you do choose to go ahead with a laxative, try to get an organic/natural one. laxatieves just mess up your bowl movement if you become dependent on them so dont overuse them
