When you want fast relief from occasional constipation, use
comfort-shaped Dulcolax Laxative Suppositories to help get you feeling
like yourself again. They contain the same active ingredient you have
come to trust in Dulcolax Laxative Tablets, and generally deliver fast,
gentle, predictable relief in 15 to 60 minutes.
Dulcolax Laxative Suppositories may be used to empty the bowels before and after surgery and before examination.
Dulcolax Laxative Suppositories work by releasing the active ingredient, bisacodyl, in the rectum, which stimulates the bowel muscles while also accumulating water in the intestines. The effect is to soften the stool and to make it pass through more quickly, generally providing relief in 15 to 60 minutes, so you can feel like yourself again fast.
Suppositories are specially shaped so that they are easy to insert
gently into the rectum. 1) Unwrap the suppository from its foil
covering. 2) Dip the tip of the suppository for a few seconds in
lukewarm water to soften the exterior. 3) Lie down on your side and
raise your opposite knee to your chest. 4) Relax the buttock just before
inserting the suppository to ease insertion. 5) Gently insert
suppository, lubricated pointed end first, high into rectum so that it
will not slip out. 6) Push the flat end of the suppository sideways to
make sure that part of it touches the wall of the rectum. 7) Continue to
lie down for a few minutes and hold the buttocks together to allow the
suppository to dissolve in the rectum. Try to retain the suppository in
the rectum as long as possible.
