DULCOLAX 5mg Tablets



Dulcolax is a laxative for a gentle return to natural regularity, which works on contact with the large intestine to help restore your body’s normal pattern. Is a stimulant laxative, so it acts directly on the bowels, stimulating the bowel muscles to cause a bowel movement.

These tablets have a timed release, which stops the active ingredient being released before it reaches the bowel. This relieves the symptoms of constipation.

Available in a 30 tablet pack.

Active Ingredients 

Each tablet contains Bisacodyl 5mg.


Take this medication by mouth as directed by your doctor. If you are self-treating, follow all directions on the product package. If you are uncertain about any of the information, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Swallow this medication whole. Do not crush, chew, or break the tablet or take it within 1 hour of antacids, milk, or milk products. Doing so can destroy the coating on the tablet and may increase the risk of stomach upset and nausea.
