Effective relief from constipation, working predictably and reliably overnight. Dulcolax tablets have a special coating that helps ensure the medicine works only where needed, stimulating the bowel and returning the body to its natural rhythm. Laxatives do not help with weight loss.
Adults and children over 10 years old, take one or two tablets (5 or 10 mg) daily before bedtime. If you have not taken Dulcolax tablets before start with one tablet and then increase to two if necessary. When bowel movement has returned to normal, the dose can be stopped.
- If laxatives are needed for more than 5 days in a row, or if you have persistent abdominal pain, consult your doctor.
- Keep out of sight and reach of children.
- 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 breastfeeding.
Each tablet contains 5 mg of bisacodyl.
