Bisacodyl is a stimulant laxative. It causes the muscles in the intestine to contract and stools are passed. It is used for short term relief of constipation. Long term use can cause diarrhea, and lower blood potassium and other important electrolytes which can be dangerous.

It should not be used for weight loss. There are safer and more effective medicines on the market. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
