Dulcolax Tablets 5mg (40)

DULCOLAX Tablets contain a medicine called bisacodyl. This belongs to a group of medicines called laxatives 

DULCOLAX Tablets are used for relief of constipation

This medicine does not help with weight loss

DULCOLAX Tablets can also be used in a hospital to empty a person’s bowel before child birth, surgery or radiological investigations

DULCOLAX Tablets gently stimulate the muscles of the bowel (large intestine). This brings predictable, overnight relief from constipation, helping to return the body to its natural rhythm

DULCOLAX Tablets are gastro-resistant tablets which have a special coating that helps to ensure the medicine works only where it is needed What is constipation? Normal and regular bowel movement is important for most people. However, what is “normal and regular” varies from person to person. Some may have a bowel movement every day, others less often. Whatever it is like for you, it is best that your bowel movement has a regular pattern.

Constipation is an occasional problem for some people. For others, it may happen more often

It happens when the normal muscle actions in the bowel (large intestine) slow down. This can mean that material is not easily eliminated from the body.

The cause of constipation is often not known. It can be associated with:

  • Sudden change of diet
  • A diet with not enough fibre
  • Loss of ‘tone’ of the bowel muscles in older people
  • Pregnancy
  • Medicines such as morphine or codeine
  • Having to stay in bed for a long time
  • Lack of exercise Whatever the cause, constipation can be uncomfortable. It may make you feel bloated and heavy or generally “off colour”. Sometimes it causes headaches.
These healthy tips are recommended to try to prevent constipation happening:
  • Eat a balanced diet including fresh fruit and vegetables
  • Drink enough water so that you do not become dehydrated
  • Keep up your exercise and stay fit
  • Make time to empty your bowels when your body tells you.
