Dulcolax Pico Liquid (Sodium Picosulfate), Which Is A Type Of Medicine Known As A Stimulant Laxative.
Sodium Picosulfate Works By Stimulating The Nerve Endings In The Walls Of The Large Intestine (Colon) And Rectum. This Causes The Muscles In The Intestinal Wall To Contract More Often And With Increased Force. When These Muscles Contract (A Process Known As Peristalsis), This Moves The Contents Of The Intestine Through The Colon To The Rectum So That The Bowel Can Be Emptied. This Relieves Constipation.
The Sodium Picosulfate Is Activated By The Natural Bacteria That Are Found In The Colon, So It Does Not Start Working Until It Reaches This Part Of The Gut.
Dulcolax Pico Liquid Starts To Work Six To Twelve Hours After Taking A Dose. It Should Be Taken At Night To Produce Relief From Constipation The Following Morning.

Fleet Ready To Use Enema is for the relief of occasional or periodic constipation. Constipation can generally occur if you have three or fewer bowel movements each week, and your stools are hard, dry, and difficult to pass. In this situation, Fleet Enema can provide help and relief.
How does Fleet Enema work?
Fleet Enema is a saline laxative. Saline laxatives work by drawing water into the colon which helps produce a bowel movement. This provides a soft stool mass and increased bowel action. A bowel movement should be stimulated in 1 to 5 minutes, without pain or spasm. Fleet Enema is also ideal for bowel cleansing before undergoing a rectal examination. Plus, it’s latex-free.
Fleet Enema is available in a ready-to-use, disposable squeeze bottle with a soft, pre-lubricated Comfort tip.
