Dulcolax Adult 5mg Gastro-Resistant Tablets



Dulcolax Tablets offer relief from constipation by gently stimulating the bowel and returning the body habit to its natural rhythm. Do not use in children under the age of 18 years.

SKU: 00002691 EP Categories: ,


Dulcolax Adult Tablets are used for the short-term relief of occasional constipation. Dulcolax Adult Tablets contain bisacodyl and belong to a group of medicines known as stimulant laxatives, which increase bowel movements. This medicine does not help with weight loss. It provides the perfect relief so you don’t be uncomfortable all day and night.

Drug Safety Update: measures for stimulant laxatives.

Stimulant laxatives should only be used if other laxatives (bulk-forming and osmotic) are ineffective. Do not use in children under the age of 18 years. If you are not sure, talk to your pharmacist or doctor before taking this medicine.
