Info

Indications:

Bisacodyl is a laxative that stimulates bowel movements. Bisacodyl is used to treat constipation or to empty the bowels before surgery, colonoscopy, x-rays, or other intestinal medical procedure.

Contraindications:

You should not use this medication if you are allergic to bisacodyl, or if you have: severe stomach pain, nausea, or vomiting; a perforated bowel; a blockage in your intestines; fructose or galactose intolerance; an allergy to yellow food dye; severe constipation or dehydration; inflammatory bowel disease, toxic megacolon; or a sudden change in bowel habits lasting 2 weeks or longer. People with eating disorders (such as anorexia or bulimia) should not use this medication without the advice of a doctor. If you have any of these other conditions, you may need a dose adjustment or special tests to safely use bisacodyl: kidney disease; trouble swallowing; a history of bowel obstruction, diverticulitis, ulcerative colitis, or other intestinal disorder; or if you are taking a diuretic ("water pill").

Adverse reactions:

Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficult breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Call your doctor at once if you have a serious side effect such as: urinating less than usual or not at all; drowsiness, confusion, mood changes, increased thirst, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting; swelling, weight gain, feeling short of breath; rectal bleeding; severe stomach pain or cramps, severe or ongoing diarrhea or vomiting; or low potassium (confusion, uneven heart rate, extreme thirst, increased urination, leg discomfort, muscle weakness or limp feeling). Less serious side effects may include: dizziness, weakness; increased thirst; mild stomach pain, gas, indigestion; diarrhea or loose stools; mild nausea; or skin rash.

Interactions:

Avoid using any other medications within 2 hours before or after using bisacodyl. Avoid drinking milk within 1 hour after using bisacodyl.

Warnings:

Do not use bisacodyl if you have stomach (abdominal) pain, nausea, or vomiting, unless directed by a doctor. If you notice a sudden change in bowel habits that persists over a period of 2 weeks, consult your healthcare provider before using a laxative. Bisacodyl products should not be used for longer than one week, unless otherwise directed by your healthcare provider. Rectal bleeding or failure to have a bowel movement after use of a laxative may indicate a more serious condition. Stop using bisacodyl and contact your healthcare provider.
