Product Overview

Bisacodyl Laxative Tablets - 5 mg
Compares to Dulcolax


AllegroMedical.com presents The Bisacodyl Laxative Tablets. Bisacodyl, a laxative, is used on a short-term basis to treat constipation. It also is used to empty the bowels before surgery and examinations such as X-ray procedures using barium enemas. Bisacodyl is available with or without a prescription.

This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

How should this medicine be used?

Bisacodyl Laxative Tablets are taken by mouth. It is usually taken the evening before tablets a bowel movement is desired. Follow the directions on the package or on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand.

To empty the bowels, bisacodyl usually is taken orally (tablet) the night before and rectally (suppository or enema) the morning of surgery or an examination. The tablets normally cause a bowel movement in 6-8 hours, suppositories in 15-60 minutes, and the enema in 3-5 minutes. Do not take bisacodyl more than once a day or for more than 1 week without talking to your doctor.

Do not crush or chew bisacodyl tablets; swallow them whole. Do not take tablets within 1 hour of drinking milk or taking antacids. Do not eat after taking bisacodyl tablets in preparation for a barium enema.

Take bisacodyl exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor. Frequent or continued use of bisacodyl may make you dependent on laxatives and cause your bowels to lose their normal ability. If you do not have a regular bowel movement or you have rectal bleeding after taking this medication as directed for 1 week, call your doctor. Do not give bisacodyl to a child less than 10 years of age unless a doctor tells you to.

What special precautions should I follow before taking Bisacodyl?

  • Tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to bisacodyl, aspirin, tartrazine (a yellow dye in some processed foods and medicines, including bisacodyl), or any other drugs.
  • Tell your doctor and pharmacist what prescription and nonprescription medications you are taking.
  • Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding. If you become pregnant while taking bisacodyl, call your doctor.

What should I do if I forget a dose?

This medication usually is taken as needed. If your doctor has told you to take bisacodyl regularly, take the missed dose as soon as you remember it. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.

What side effects can this medication cause?

Although side effects from bisacodyl are not common, they can occur. Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away:

  • stomach cramps
  • upset stomach
  • diarrhea
  • stomach and intestinal irritation
  • faintness
  • irritation or burning in the rectum (from suppositories)

What storage conditions are needed for this medicine?

Keep this medication in the container it came in, tightly closed, and out of reach of children. Store it at room temperature and away from excess heat and moisture (not in the bathroom). Throw away any medication that is outdated or no longer needed. Talk to your pharmacist about the proper disposal of your medication.

Answer:
I was prescribed Bisacodyl in preparation fo an investigative procedure of my Urinary Tract. It was advised that the medication would take between 6 and 12 hours to work and it is for this reason, normally, advised to be taken at bedtime, to allow sufficient time for the drug to work. I hope this is of some use.

Answer:
I have taken 5 bisacodyl a day for several months for severe constipation and I have had no unpleasant side effects. Your dose of 2 day should cause no problems. It is not unusual to become so blocked up with gas and feces that it can fill the entire intestinal tract. I read about one patient that had more than 35 pounds of feces in their intestines at the time of their death. If that is your problem this should help, although I questioin that treating you for only a week will be adiquate for such a long term problem.

Answer:
As someone whom has suffered many of the symptoms you describe and fobbed of in the same manner by my doctor, I suggest you seek a second opinion. Prolonged periods of constipation is NOT normal and can often be a sign that there are underlying medical conditions. In my case it was Endometrosis, however there are many other illnesses that cause compatible symptoms. In any case long term use of laxatives can cause the natural movements of the bowel ( Peristalsis ) to become interrupted and in turn give more problems than they cure. Persist with the medical profession until you have the answers you need. Ultimately, it is our responsibility to protect our health. If I had been more demanding, I would have needed less medical intervention, in the long term. Do not delay and ALWAYS seek medical advice, when you have bleeding from your Anus, blood in your stools, or black sticky faeces. These may be signs of conditions that need further investigation. Good luck in the future!

Answer:
Please note that no one should be taking more than 2 Bisacodyl per day! Unless under strict medical supervision. Increased activity in the bowel, like the spasms induced by the use of this drug, are to encourage the movement of faeces along the intestines. Over use of any laxative can cause a further build up of gases, increase the pressure in the bowel and CAN result in perforation of the small or large intestines. The "clue" is in the previous person's answer, the patient with 35lbs of faeces was dead. The bowel can become overwhelmed,by spasms,caused by overuse of the laxative. It can become paralysed and the faeces within it does not move normally along it, but builds up, becoming impacted, this MAY cause the bowel to perforate! Stick to the prescribed dose, then return to your doctor if symptoms persist. DON'T self prescribe, it may sound boring, but is DANGEROUS to do so!
