A few comedies ( I believe wedding crashers) show a character putting a few drops of visine in someones drink to give them severe diarrhea.  I had wondered at one point, if that works so well, why isn't it prescribed for constipation, or as a prep?  Up until recently I hadn't found my answer.  Even though I am a D gal instead of a C gal I had wondered if a drop or two could help you constipated crohnies.  And then I found this article.
 
 
It actually doesn't cause diarrhea and is VERY DANGEROUS to ingest.  I can't help but think it is irresponsible of movies to show it being used in this way if it is not how it works and so dangerous if attempted.
 
So, point being, no matter how bad you want to poop, don't drink your visine.

Good grief - you could actually kill someone doing this! VERY irresponsible of the movie industry to try and get a laugh from something that can be potentially fatal. Jo

Dont use Preparation -H in your eyes either. May cause narrow vision, or just a $#!++ outlook on life. In this case some of these people need some psychiatric help. They are not seeing life too clearly.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

Visine in a drink was the cause of death in a CSI episode a few years ago.
