Dulcolax Pico Liquid

Dulcolax Pico Liquid contains sodium picosulphate, a laxative used for the relief of constipation.

Dulcolax Pico Liquid works by gently stimulating the muscles of the bowel (large intestine), providing predictable, overnight relief and helping to restore the body's natural rhythm.

Dulcolax Pico Liquid is fruit flavoured.
  • Adults and children over 10 years: One to two 5ml spoonfuls at night. When your bowel regularity has returned to normal, the dose can usually be stopped.
  • Active Ingredient: Sodium Picosulfate 5mg per 5ml (present as sodium picosulfate monohydrate).
  • Other Ingredients: Carmellose Sodium, Methyl Parahydroxybenzoate (E218), Propyl Parahydroxybenzoate (E216), Glycerol, Aroma Tutti Frutti (Flavouring), Saccharin Sodium, Colouring Sunset Yellow (E110), Ethanol, Sodium Hydroxide (for pH adjustment) and Water.
  • Dulcolax Pico Liquid contains 5.9% ethanol (alcohol), which is up to 480mg per dose. This is equivalent to 12 ml beer or 5 ml wine per dose. This may be harmful for people with a drink problem (alcoholism). This should also be taken into account in pregnant or breastfeeding women, children and high risk groups such as those with liver disease or epilepsy.
  • Dulcolax Pico Liquid contains the preservatives methyl parahydroxybenzoate, propyl parahydroxybenzoate and the colouring agent sunset yellow (E110). These ingredients may cause allergic reactions, which may not happen after the first dose.
