Dulcolax Tablets are trusted around the world as a gentle, reliable and easy to take treatment for constipation. They are ideal if you are looking for overnight relief in particular. Each tablet contains a precisely measured amount of the active ingredient, bisacodl, which ensures that Dulcolax Tablets are predictable and reliable. Within 6-12 hours of taking one dose, the colon is gently stimulated and constipation is soon relieved.
Dulolax Tablets are known to be easy to take, as they have a special comfort coating that ensure the active ingredient is released right where it is needed. The Dulcolax Comfort Coating resists the acidic digestive juices of the stomach and the small intestine and dissolves only when it reaches the alkaline (non-acidic) environment of the colon.
Bisacodyl 5mg, lactose, maize starch, sucrose, glycerol, magnesium stearate, talc, acacia, white beeswax, shellac, carnauba wax, titanium dioxide (E171), yellow iron oxide (E172), methacrylic acid-methyl methacrylate copolymer, dibutyl phthalate, macrogol 6000.
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.
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. Do not take 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 at 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, or the comfort coating will not be effective anymore. Please always read the leaflet in the package carefully, and ask your health advisor if you have questions.
