How do I use Dulcolax® Laxative Tablets? Can I chew or crush them?

Dulcolax® Laxative Tablets can be taken with water, but should be swallowed whole. The tablets must not be chewed or crushed. They are small and can be easily swallowed. Do not take Dulcolax® Laxative Tablets within 1 hour of consuming dairy products or antacids.

Should I take the Dulcolax® Laxative Tablets before, after, or with meals?

Dulcolax® Laxative Tablets can generally be taken at any time except within one hour of consuming dairy products or antacids. Dulcolax Laxative tablets have a special ‘enteric coating’, which protects the tablet from the stomach’s acidic environment and ensures it is released in the small intestine where it is needed most.

How do Dulcolax® Laxative Tablets work?

Dulcolax® Laxative Tablets are designed to stimulate the intestines to cause a bowel movement. The tablets are coated to prevent the active ingredient from being released until it reaches the part of the intestines where it is needed to work.

Can I take Dulcolax® Laxative Tablets with milk or dairy products?

No. This product should not be taken with milk or dairy products. Do not take Dulcolax® laxative tablets within one hour of taking indigestion remedies (antacids) or dairy products such as milk or yogurt as these could cause the tablet’s comfort (enteric) coating to dissolve before it reaches the colon which may result in vomiting or cramping.
