Product Information

The coated tablets should not be taken together with products which reduce the acidity of the upper gastrointestinal tract, such as milk, antacids or proton pump inhibitors, in order not to prematurely dissolve the enteric coating.

DULCOLAX is contraindicated in patients with ileus, intestinal obstruction, acute abdominal conditions including appendicitis, acute inflammatory bowel diseases, and severe abdominal pain associated with nausea and vomiting which may be indicative of the aforementioned severe conditions.

DULCOLAX is also contraindicated in severe dehydration and in patients with Known hypersensitivity to bisacodyl or any other component of the product.

In case of hereditary conditions that may be incompatible with an excipient of the product (please refer to “Special warnings and special precautions for use”) the use of the product is contraindicated.

Special warnings and precautions for use

As with all laxatives, DULCOLAX should not be taken on a continuous daily basis for more than five days without investigating the cause of constipation.

Prolonged excessive use may lead to fluid and electrolyte imbalance and hypokalaemia.

Intestinal loss of fluids can promote dehydration. Symptoms may include thirst and oliguria. In patients suffering from fluid loss where dehydration may be harmful (e.g. renal insufficiency, elderly patients) DULCOLAX should be discontinued and only be restarted under medical supervision.

Stimulant laxatives including DULCOLAX do not help with weight loss (see section 5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties).

Patients may experience haematochezia (blood in stool) that is generally mild and self-limiting.

Dizziness and / or syncope have been reported in patients who have taken DULCOLAX. The details available for these cases suggest that the events would be consistent with defaecation syncope (or syncope attributable to straining at stool), or with a vasovagal response to abdominal pain related to the constipation, and not necessarily to the administration of bisacodyl itself.

There have been isolated reports of abdominal pain and bloody diarrhoea occurring after taking bisacodyl. Some cases have been shown to be associated with colonic mucosal ischaemia.

DULCOLAX should not be taken by children under 10 years without medical advice.

DULCOLAX Tablets contain a small amount of lactose (33.2 mg) and sucrose (23.4 mg) in each tablet. Patients with rare hereditary problems of fructose intolerance, glucose-galactose malabsorption or sucrase-isomaltase insufficiency should not take this medicine.

Side Effects

The most commonly reported adverse reactions during treatment are abdominal pain and diarrhoea.
