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.

  • 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.
