Application of the active substance Bisacodyl

Bisacodyl can also be used to defecate as part of preparation for bowel surgery or examination.

  • Constipation

Mode of action of bisacodyl

Bisacodyl is an active substance that only works after a transformation in the body. It is converted to the liver by the liver after ingestion and excreted in the intestine. There intestinal bacteria split the active ingredient into the actually effective diphenol. Diphenol, for its part, increases intestinal activity and draws water into the intestine, which softens, loosens and makes it easier to excrete the stool.

Furthermore, bisacodyl stimulates the intestinal wall musculature. Intestinal movements are thereby promoted, the chair is transported faster towards the rectum and thus the bowel movement is initiated.

Bisacodyl can be taken as well as used as a suppository. When taken on an empty stomach in the morning, the effect occurs after about six hours, in the evening after five to ten hours. When used as a suppository, the defecation begins after 15 to 60 minutes.

    If constipation is lighter, nausea is less likely to occur than when it is stronger. Taking the Ducolax Dragee in the middle of a larger meal in the evening can help prevent tummy cramps.

    Dulcolax for Constipation

    I took 1 Drageé in the evening before going to bed. After only four hours, I was awakened by nasty stomach cramps that lasted two hours until my gut finally emptied. Only after the stool did the cramps slowly subside. The intake is very easy and the drug is available at any pharmacy cheap to buy, yet I would recommend it to anyone who has a sensitive stomach.

    Side effects: Stomach cramps
