Have used Bisacodyl 5 mg for constipation and wondering how it compares to sennosides 25 mg
7 Mar 2011
Sennosides is a stimulant laxative. It works by irritating bowel tissues, resulting in bowel movements.
Bisacodyl is a laxative that stimulates bowel movements. It is used to treat constipation or to empty the bowels before surgery, colonoscopy, x-rays, or other intestinal medical procedure.
They both work to relieve constipation but their modes of action are slightly different. Try the Senna-Lax and see how it works for you.
