Product Overview

Geri-Care Pharmaceuticals Bisacodyl Laxative Suppositories - 10mg

Bisacodyl Laxative Suppositories - 10 mg
Compares to Dulcolax / Magic Bullet


The Bisacodyl Suppository is a stimulant laxative, which acts on nerve endings in the walls of the intestine and the rectum. It causes the muscles in the intestine to contract more often and with increased force. When the intestine contracts it moves the gut contents along faster, thereby relieving constipation.

The Bisacodyl Suppositories produce an effect in about 30 minutes. When used to empty the bowel prior to surgery or investigative procedures, Bisacodyl tablets should be used in combination with the suppositories, in order to produce complete evacuation.

The adult suppositories should be used for children over the age of ten years. Children under ten years should use the half-strength, children's suppositories.

What is Bisocodyl used for?
  • Bowel evacuation prior to radiological examinations
  • Bowel evacuation prior to surgery
  • Constipation
How Should I Use The Bisocodyl Suppositories?

Bisacodyl Suppositories are put into the rectum (back passage). Do not take by mouth. Wash your hands. Take off the foil wrapping. Lie on your side and raise your knee to your chest. Using your finger push the suppository, with the pointed end first, into the rectum. Try and keep the suppository in your rectum for 15 to 20 minutes. If you feel it must come out at once, it was not inserted high enough and should be pushed higher. Wash your hands well after use. Use exactly as directed; do not exceed the recommended dose, and do not use more often than directed. Bisacodyl is not intended for long-term use.

Warning!
  • This medicine is not to be taken by mouth.
  • This medicine should not be used in children under 10 years of age unless on medical advice.
  • Laxatives should not be used continuously for long periods. If laxatives are needed every day, the cause of constipation should be investigated. Consult your doctor.
  • Prolonged, excessive use may lead to electrolyte imbalance and low potassium levels in the blood (hypokalaemia). Prolonged, excessive use may also lead to rebound constipation.
Bisocodyl is not to be used in:
  • Blockage of the gut (intestinal obstruction)
  • Obstruction of the intestines due to loss of intestinal movement or physical blockage (ileus)
  • Severe dehydration
  • Sudden abdominal conditions requiring surgery, such as appendicitis
  • Sudden attacks of inflammatory bowel disease, such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease
  • Tear in the lining of the back passage (anal fissure)
  • Ulceration and inflammation of the rectum (ulcerative proctitis)
  • This medicine should not be used if you are allergic to one or any of its ingredients. Please inform your doctor or pharmacist if you have previously experienced such an allergy.

    If you feel you have experienced an allergic reaction, stop using this medicine and inform your doctor or pharmacist immediately.

    Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

    Certain medicines should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding. However, other medicines may be safely used in pregnancy or breastfeeding providing the benefits to the mother outweigh the risks to the unborn baby. Always inform your doctor if you are pregnant or planning a pregnancy, before using any medicine.

    This medicine should be used with caution during pregnancy, and only if the expected benefit to the mother is greater than the possible risk to the foetus. Seek medical advice from your doctor. The use of this medicine during breastfeeding is not recommended. Seek medical advice from your doctor.

    Answer:
    Bisocodyl Sodium, I believe. A mild stimulant. This is the same as in "Magic Bullet" but far cheaper. I use a suppository most days, but alternate between stimulant and non-stimulant (glycerin) suppositories.
