Dulcolax® Laxative Suppositories have the same active ingredient you have come to trust in Dulcolax® Laxative Tablets.
Dulcolax® Laxative Suppositories work by releasing the active ingredient, bisacodyl, in the rectum, which stimulates the bowel muscles while also accumulating water in the intestines. The effect is to soften the stool and to make it pass through more quickly, generally providing relief in 15 to 60 minutes, so you can feel like yourself again fast.
Dulcolax® Suppositories are specially shaped so that they are easy to insert gently into the rectum.
What Dulcolax® is used for?
Dulcolax® is used for relief of occasional constipation. Under medical supervision Dulcolax® is also used to empty the bowels before and after surgery and before examination.
Dulcolax® should not be used:
Warnings & Precautions:
BEFORE you use Dulcolax® talk to your doctor or pharmacist:
A laxative should not be taken within two (2) hours of another medicine because the desired effect of the other medicine may be reduced.
You may experience dizziness and/or fainting (syncope) caused by a malaise triggered by abdominal spasm. If you experience abdominal spasm, avoid hazardous tasks such as driving or operating machinery.
If high doses are taken, watery stool (diarrhoea), abdominal cramps, and loss of fluid, potassium and other minerals can occur. Dulcolax® when taken in chronic overdose may cause chronic diarrhoea, abdominal pain, kidney damage, and muscle weakness.
