DoNotTryThisAtHome. No, seriously, don't. [[JustForFun/TelevisionIsTryingToKillUs This is illegal and incredibly risky in real life]]. The victim could end up seriously ill, hospitalised or worse. Dehydration is also not the only risk: the person could be allergic to the laxative or its inert ingredients, or could even suffer a RupturedAppendix or internal bleeding. The induced vomiting variant can cause internal bleeding, and is actually far more likely to do so than a laxative. Consequently, administering even such a seemingly-trivial pharmaceutical drug to someone without their knowledge is classified as a serious criminal offense in many jurisdictions--the perpetrator of the prank could face serious criminal charges--and in most jurisdictions this act would also constitute civil battery, or at least gross negligence (or the local equivalent), opening up the possibility that the victim could sue for damages (including, in many places, punitive damages).

* The ''Webcomic/{{College Roomies From Hell}}'' / ''Joe Average'' / ''Life at Bayside'' crossover.
* A ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'' strip has [[JerkAss Mike]] handing out candy to people in return for them irritating Ethan by repeatedly telling him about StarWars {{Transformers}} (which had already been out for some time). The "candy" comes from a box marked "Lax-O".
* Both PlayedForLaughs and [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]] in ''Webcomic/{{Penny And Aggie}}''. The title characters and their friends agree to spare TheSociopath Cyndi's reputation if she helps them humiliate the bully ringleader Karen by spiking the alcohol popsicles at her party with toothpaste, to make them taste bad. Instead, Cyndi spikes them with laxative. While most of the party guests undergo minor, though embarrassing and uncomfortable, [[PottyEmergency potty emergencies]], Samantha consumes enough spiked popsicles to necessitate a trip to the emergency room.

** Coffman also denies using eyedrops for this, saying they cost too much to waste on a prank ($30 for a very small bottle). Ex-lax, on the other hand....

* For the record, laxatives usually don't work this way in real life anyway, because there are of course many ''types'' of laxative. Most laxatives don't actually make you have to go; they loosen the stool and/or the bowel muscles, usually by adding water or other matter to the stool or by causing a chemical reaction of some sort, all with intent to make the stool easier to pass. Stimulant laxatives, the kind that would actually induce the sort of reaction Hollywood depicts, are of course dangerous to use as described above.
