What are the Dulcolax tablets?
Dulcolax tablets are very effective laxatives. Taking 1-2 tablets before going to bed is enough to relieve you of constipation. These tablets are perfect for adult men and women suffering from constipation.
How does it work?
The active ingredient in these tablets is bisacodyl (5mg). It is a stimulant laxative. It means it causes the stimulation of the muscles in the bowel for fast movement of the contents. Often, low bowel movements are the cause of constipation. These tablets remove this cause and return your digestive system to regularity.

These tablets are suitable for adults and children above 4 years of age. For children aged under 4 kids, consult the doctor for more alternatives.
