Description

Dulcolax Adult Pico Liquid

Dulcolax Adult Pico Liquid relieves short-term occasional constipation in adults aged 18 years and over. It contains the active ingredient sodium picosulfate, a stimulant laxative that works by increasing bowel movements. Stimulant laxatives do not reduce the absorption of calories or nutrients therefore do not aid with weight loss.

Directions

Always take this medicine exactly as described in the leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your pharmacist if you are not sure.
  • Adults (including the elderly): one to two 5ml spoonfuls at night.
If you have not taken Dulcolax Adult Pico Liquid before, start with one 5ml spoonful and increase to two if necessary. When your bowel regularity has returned to normal, the dose can usually be stopped.

This product should not be taken every day for more than 5 days. If you need laxatives every day, then you should see your doctor to find the cause of your constipation.

Ingredients

  • Active Ingredient: Sodium picosulfate 5mg/5ml (present as sodium picosulfate monohydrate) 
  • Other Ingredients: Carmellose sodium, methyl parahydroxybenzoate (E218), propyl parahydroxybenzoate (E216), glycerol, tutti frutti flavour, saccharin sodium, ethanol, sodium hydroxide (for pH adjustment) and water.

Cautions

  • Talk to your pharmacist or doctor before taking Dulcolax Adult Pico Liquid if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or are breast-feeding.
  • Dulcolax Adult Pico Liquid contains 4.8 vol % ethanol (alcohol), i.e. up to 480mg per 10ml dose, equivalent to 10.4ml beer or 4.3ml of wine per 10ml dose. This may be harmful for people with a drink problem (alcoholism). This should also be taken into account in pregnant or breast-feeding women, children and high risk groups such as those with liver disease or epilepsy.
  • Dulcolax Adult Pico Liquid contains the preservatives methyl parahydroxybenzoate and propyl parahydroxybenzoate. These ingredients may cause allergic reactions, which may not happen after the first dose. The signs may include: a rash, swelling of your skin, mouth and face which may cause swallowing or breathing problems.
Do not take Dulcolax Adult Pico Liquid if:
  • You are allergic (hypersensitive) to sodium picosulfate or any of the other ingredients in the product.
  • You have severe dehydration.
  • You have a bowel condition called "ileus" (blockage in the intestine).
  • You have a serious abdominal condition such as appendicitis.
  • You have severe abdominal pain with nausea and vomiting and/or fever.
  • You have a blocked bowel (intestinal obstruction).
  • You have inflammation of the bowel (small and large intestine).
  • You are under 18 years old.
Please tell your pharmacist or doctor if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription. This includes herbal medicines. This is because Dulcolax Adult Pico Liquid can affect the way some other medicines work. Also, some other medicines can affect the way Dulcolax Adult Pico Liquid works. In particular, tell your pharmacist or doctor if you are taking:
  • Water tablets (diuretics) such as bendrofluazide or furosemide (frusemide).
  • Steroid medicines such as prednisolone.
  • Antibiotics - used for infections.
If you are not sure if any of the above applies to you, talk to your pharmacist or doctor before taking Dulcolax Adult Pico Liquid.

It may be harmful to take too much Dulcolax Adult Pico Liquid or take Dulcolax Adult Pico Liquid for too long. This is because taking too much for too long may lead to:
  • Imbalance of fluid and salts in the body. This can affect the tightness of muscles such as those in the bowel.
  • It can also affect the salts in the blood.
  • Low levels of potassium in the blood (called 'hypokalaemia'). This can make you tired, dizzy, make your muscles weak and cause an uneven heartbeat.
  • Dehydration, making you thirsty, feel faint and giving you headaches. It can also mean you cannot pass enough urine.
If you take more of this medicine than you should, talk to a doctor or go to a hospital straight away. Take the medicine pack with you; this is so the doctor knows what you have taken.
