Description

Dulcolax Laxative Tablets are designed to relieve the congestion in the bowel caused by constipation and help bowel movements return to their normal working order. The active ingredient, bisacodyl, works as a laxative that softens the stools in the bowel. Dulcolax are easy to take thanks to their special comfort coating, which ensures the active ingredient is released right where it’s needed. The coating resists the acidic digestive juices of the stomach and small intestine to dissolve only as it reaches the alkaline environment of the colon.

Directions

  • Adults and children over 10 years should take 1 or 2 tablets at night, or as directed by your doctor.
  • If you have not used Ducolax before, start with 1 tablet and increase to 2 if necessary.
  • Swallow tablets whole with water.
  • Children under 10 years not recommended except on medical advice.
  • Always read the label.
  • Do not take milk or antacids within one hour of taking Dulcolax tablets.

Warnings

  • If laxatives are needed for more than 5 days in a row or if you persistent abdominal pain, consult your doctor.
  • Do not take milk or antacids within one hour of taking Dulcolax tablets.
  • Do not take if you have an intestinal obstruction, an inflammatory gastrointestinal disorder, or severe dehydration, or if you are pregnant, planning a pregnancy, or breast feeding.
  • Please note that it is very important to avoid drinking milk or an antacid product the same time as taking Dulcolax. These liquids are alkaline, and can dissolve the comfort coating too early. For the same reason, Dulcolax Tablets should never be crushed or chewed before swallowing, otherwise the comfort coating is not effective anymore.
  • Please always read the leaflet in the package carefully, and ask your health advisor if you have questions.
