Senokot Syrup is used for the relief of occasional or non-persistent constipation.

Senokot Syrup - Senna is known as a 'stimulant laxative'. It acts on nerve endings in the gut wall. These nerves then make the muscles in the intestine contract with more force and more often. When the gut contracts, it moves the contents along faster, and so it reduces constipation. As senna increases the activity of the muscle in the gut, it often causes stomach cramps. Senna is given by mouth and takes 8-12 hours to work.


Adults: 10ml at night. Children over 6 years: 5ml in the morning. 6 years and under : not to be given except on medical advice.

This medicine should not be used if you are allergic to one or any of its ingredients. Please inform your doctor if you have previously experienced such an allergy.
