Clinical particulars4.1 Therapeutic indicationsShort term relief of constipation.4.2 Posology and method of administrationAdults and children over 10 years: 1 to 2 coated tablets (5-10 mg) daily before bedtime.It is recommended to start with the lowest dose. The dose may be adjusted up to the maximum recommended dose to produce regular stools. The maximum daily dose should not be exceeded.In the management of constipation, once regularity has been restarted dosage should be reduced and can usually be stopped.It is recommended to take the coated tablets at night to have a bowel movement the following morning. They should be swallowed whole with an adequate amount of fluid.The coated tablets should not be taken together with products which reduce the acidity of the upper gastrointestinal tract, such as milk, antacids or proton pump inhibitors, in order not to prematurely dissolve the enteric coating.No specific information on the use of this product in the elderly is available. Clinical trials have included patients over 65 years and no adverse reactions specific to this age group have been reported.4.3 ContraindicationsDULCOLAX is contraindicated in patients with ileus, intestinal obstruction, acute abdominal conditions including appendicitis, acute inflammatory bowel diseases, and severe abdominal pain associated with nausea and vomiting which may be indicative of the aforementioned severe conditions.DULCOLAX is also contraindicated in severe dehydration and in patients with Known hypersensitivity to bisacodyl or any other component of the product.In case of hereditary conditions that may be incompatible with an excipient of the product (please refer to “Special warnings and special precautions for use” the use of the product is contraindicated.4.4 Special warnings and precautions for useAs with all laxatives, DULCOLAX should not be taken on a continuous daily basis for more than five days without investigating the cause of constipation.Prolonged excessive use may lead to fluid and electrolyte imbalance and hypokalaemia.Intestinal loss of fluids can promote dehydration. Symptoms may include thirst and oliguria. In patients suffering from fluid loss where dehydration may be harmful (e.g. renal insufficiency, elderly patients) DULCOLAX should be discontinued and only be restarted under medical supervision.Stimulant laxatives including DULCOLAX do not help with weight loss (see section 5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties).Patients may experience haematochezia (blood in stool) that is generally mild and self-limiting.Dizziness and / or syncope have been reported in patients who have taken DULCOLAX. The details available for these cases suggest that the events would be consistent with defaecation syncope (or syncope attributable to straining at stool), or with a vasovagal response to abdominal pain related to the constipation, and not necessarily to the administration of bisacodyl itself.There have been isolated reports of abdominal pain and bloody diarrhoea occurring after taking bisacodyl. Some cases have been shown to be associated with colonic mucosal ischaemia.DULCOLAX Tablets contain a small amount of lactose (33.2 mg) and sucrose (23.4 mg) in each tablet. Patients with rare hereditary problems of fructose intolerance, glucose-galactose malabsorption or sucrase-isomaltase insufficiency should not take this medicine.4.5 Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interactionThe concomitant use of antacids and milk products may reduce the resistance of the coating of the tablets and result in dyspepsia and gastric irritation.The concomitant use of diuretics or adreno-corticosteroids may increase the risk of electrolyte imbalance if excessive doses of DULCOLAX are taken.Electrolyte imbalance may lead to increased sensitivity to cardiac glycosides.The concomitant use of other laxatives may enhance the gastrointestinal side effects of DULCOLAX.4.6 Pregnancy and lactationThere are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Long experience has shown no evidence of undesirable or damaging effects during pregnancy.Clinical data show that neither the active moiety of bisacodyl (BHPM or bis- (p-hydroxyphenyl)-pyridyl-2-methane) nor its glucuronides are excreted into the milk of healthy lactating females.Nevertheless, as with all medicines, DULCOLAX should not be taken in pregnancy, especially the first trimester, and during breast feeding unless the expected benefit is thought to outweigh any possible risk and only on medical advice.No studies on the effect on human fertility have been conducted.4.7 Effects on ability to drive and use machinesNo studies on the effects of DULCOLAX on the ability to drive and use machines have been performed.However, patients should be advised that due to a vasovagal response (e.g. to abdominal spasm) they may experience dizziness and / or syncope. If patients experience abdominal spasm they should avoid potentially hazardous tasks such as driving or operating machinery.4.8 Undesirable effectsThe most commonly reported adverse reactions during treatment are abdominal pain and diarrhoea.Adverse events have been ranked under headings of frequency using the following convention: Very common (≥ 1/10); common (≥ 1/100, < 1/10); uncommon (≥ 1/1000, Condition: New, Brand: Dulcolax, Main Ingredient: Bisacodyl, MPN: 5012917077018, Formulation: Tablet, Purpose: constipation, Custom Bundle: No, Modified Item: No, Country/Region of Manufacture: United Kingdom, Non-Domestic Product: No
