Gws01090Bisac-Evac 10 mg Rectal Suppository
Other Brand Names: Dulcolax, Fleet Bisacodyl, Magic Bullet
Uses: This product is used to treat constipation. However, milder products (e.g., laxatives taken by mouth) should be used whenever possible for constipation. Bisacodyl is a stimulant laxative that works by increasing the amount of fluid/salts in the intestines. This effect usually results in a bowel movement within 15 to 60 minutes. The normal frequency of bowel movements varies from once daily to 1 to 2 times weekly. Constipation is best treated by drinking plenty of fluids (four to six 8-ounce glasses daily), eating foods high in fiber, and exercising regularly. This product is not recommended for use in children younger than 6 years unless directed by a doctor.
