Should dulcolax be taking on empty stomach?


Inactive 8 Aug 2010


Yes take it on an empty stomach.

Bisacodyl is sold under the trade names Dulcolax, Fleet, Alophen, Correctol, and Carter's Little Pills.

When Dulcolax-bisacodyl is administered orally, it is usually taken at bedtime. This is due to the relatively long onset of the drug when taken orally (around 6–10 hours). When administered rectally in suppository form, it is usually effective in 15 to 60 minutes. As an enema, a bowel movement usually occurs in 5 to 20 minutes.

Take care.=
