Dulcolax Tablets ( 18 years plus) offer relief from constipation by gently stimulating the bowel and returning the body habit to its natural rhythm. Do not use in children under the age of 18 years.

Dulcolax

Dulcolax Tablets are the gentle but effective remedy for a fast relief of constipation. The active ingredient, Bisacodyl, stimulates the colon which offers you relief between 6 and 12 hours. Dulcolax Tablets specifically dissolve in alkaline environments, which is where the colon can be found. It provides the perfect relief so you don’t be uncomfortable all day and night.

Drug Safety Update: measures for stimulant laxatives.

Stimulant laxatives should only be used if other laxatives (bulk-forming and osmotic) are ineffective. Do not use in children under the age of 18 years. If you are not sure, talk to your pharmacist or doctor before taking this medicine.

For constipation: Adults (including the elderly): 1 to 2 tablets at night. • Swallow the tablets whole with water. The tablets should not be chewed or crushed. • Milk, antacids or proton pump inhibitors (medicines which reduce stomach acid) should not be taken within one hour before or after taking Dulcolax Adult Tablets. This is because they will stop the Dulcolax Adult Tablets from working properly

If you have not taken Dulcolax Adult Tablets before, start with one tablet and increase to two if necessary. When your bowel regularity has returned to normal, the dose can usually be stopped.

Length of treatment These tablets should not be taken every day for more than 5 days. If you need laxatives every day, then you should see your doctor to find the cause of your constipation. Overuse can be harmful
