Dulcolax Suppositories are used for the relief of constipation.
Dulcolax Suppositories contain bisacodyl and are fast acting, starting to work after 15 minutes and usually take full effect in just 30 minutes. Dulcolax Suppositories contain the same active ingredient as Dulcolax Tablets but act much more quickly.
Dulcolax 10mg Suppositories are designed to be used under medical advice in adults and children over 10 years of age. Suppositories are to be inserted in the rectum.
Adults and children over 10 years:
Insert 1 suppository in the rectum (10 mg) daily for immediate effect.

The maximum daily dose should not be exceeded.
In the management of constipation, once regularity has been restarted dosage should be reduced and can usually be stopped.
Children aged 10 years or younger with chronic or persistent constipation should only be treated under the guidance of a physician.
Bisacodyl should not be used in children aged 4 years or younger.
