Dulcolax tablets are for the relief of constipation. They contain a stimulant laxative to stimulate the bowel to move.
Adults and children over 10 years: Take 1 to 2 tablets at night. Children 6-10 years: Take 1 tablet at night.
Laxatives should only be used short term under the guidance of a medical professional. Increasing your fluid intake may help relieve constipation as can gradually increasing fibre in your diet. If you do not have a bowel movement after taking these tablets for 4 days, stop the treatment and see your doctor. Check with your doctor or pharmacist before use if pregnant or breast feeding.
