What is Dulcolax

Dulcolax (Bisacodyl) 5mg is a proven remedy for the treatment of constipation. It works as a mild laxative overnight to provide gentle and effective relief when required to allow the body to rediscover its natural rhythm. The unique formula and coating mean the tablets will target only the area in need, to gently stimulate the bowel in periods of sluggishness.

Constipation can occur for a wide variety of reasons and can cause discomfort and distress if the problem persists. A solution such as Dulcolax (Bisacodyl) 5mg can alleviate not only any pain experienced, but as a medicine, you can trust, it can also help to put your mind at rest if you suffer from the condition regularly.

How does Dulcolax (Bisacodyl) 5mg work?

The active ingredient in Dulcolax tablets is Bisacodyl. This is known as a stimulant laxative which encourages movement of the intestines, stimulating the muscles in the bowel into action to encourage the waste matter to pass through your system.

The special coating allows the tablets to dissolve in the right part of your body, meaning the active ingredient will target only the affected area.

How effective is Dulcolax (Bisacodyl) 5mg?

Dulcolax (Bisacodyl) 5mg is clinically proven to relieve constipation in sufferers thanks to its properties as a stimulant laxative. It will start to work within 6 to 12 hours of administration, which is why it is advised to be taken only in the evening, just before going to bed. The coating on the tablets will ensure it only treats the area in need so that when you get up in the morning, your body’s natural cycle should be restored to normal.

One tablet containing 5mg of the active ingredient, Bisacodyl, should be enough to facilitate bowel movement, but if required, an additional dose can be taken. Start with a single tablet if you have not taken Dulcolax (Bisacodyl) 5mg before. As the tablets are swallowed, they work their way through your system in the night to provide relief the following morning. If the issue is not fully cleared with a single-use, continue taking for a couple of days until the body recovers its rhythm.

How should I use Dulcolax (Bisacodyl) 5mg?

Dulcolax (Bisacodyl) 5mg comes in tablet form. It is advised to start your treatment by swallowing a single tablet whole (which is a dose of 5mg) with water 30 to 60 minutes before bedtime. The active ingredient (Bisacodyl) will target the part of the bowel in difficulty within 6 to 12 hours of taking it to offer gentle but effective relief of your symptoms of constipation.

If a single tablet is ineffective, the problems are slightly more severe, or you have used Dulcolax tablets before, take two tablets whole (a dose of 10mg) with water, again 30 to 60 minutes before bedtime.

If symptoms tend to persist for longer than 5 days, or you experience abdominal pain, consult your doctor.

Side effects

The ingredients, both active and inactive, in Dulcolax tablets can cause side effects. The most common of these include diarrhoea, feeling sick (nausea), vomiting, stomach cramps and other stomach pain, burning feeling in the rectal area.

If any of these side effects are experienced, discontinue use and contact your doctor or other healthcare professional. In the event of any questions about the product, please contact the experts at Click Pharmacy, who will be happy to advise you.
