Bisacodyl Tablet 5mg contains the active ingredient bisacodyl that fits into a group of medicines called stimulant laxatives. It works by stimulating the nerve endings in the walls of the large intestine (colon) and the rectum, which causes the muscles in the intestinal wall to contract more often and with more force. This will result in the contents of the intestine to be moved through the colon to the rectum so that the bowel can be emptied. It is therefore effective for relieving constipation. They may also be used to empty the bowel before certain medical procedures.
The Bisocodyl Tablet is features a special ‘enteric coat’ that is designed to prevent the tablets dissolving in the stomach, to ensure the active ingredient is released exactly where it is needed in the colon. The tablets should be swallowed whole to ensure this coating is not broken. The tablets will start to work 6-12 hours after taking them, so take them at night to receive short-term relief from constipation the next morning.
