Description

Senokot 7.5mg Tablets 12 Years Plus

Senokot 7.5mg Tablets 12 Years Plus contains Senna/Sennosides, a stimulant laxative for the short-term relief of occasional constipation in adults and children aged 12 years and over. Stimulant laxatives do not reduce the absorption of calories or nutrients therefore laxatives do not help with weight loss.

Directions

New users should start with the lowest dose and increase it to the maximum if necessary. Once regularity has been regained dosage should be reduced and stopped.
  • Adults, the elderly and children 12 years and over: swalllow one to two tablets at night.
Do not exceed the stated dose. Overuse can be harmful.

Normally it is sufficient to take this medicinal product up to two to three times a week. Not to be used for more than one week.

Tell a doctor, pharmacist or nurse if:
  • The symptoms worsen, or persist during the use of medicinal product.
  • There is no bowel movement within 3 days of use.
  • You need to take laxatives every day if abdominal pain persists.

Ingredients

  • Active Ingredient: Powdered Alexandrian Senna fruit (pods) (cassia senna L. (C. acutifolia Delile)) and Tinnevelly Senna fruit (pods) (Cassia angustifolia Vahl) equivalent to 15mg hydroxyanthracene glycosides, calculated as sennoside B.
  • Other Ingredients: Calcium phosphate, maize starch, magnesium stearate and lactose monohydrate. 

Cautions

  • When administering this product to incontinent adults, pads should be changed more frequently to prevent extended skin contact with faeces.
  • It is recommended to use changes in diet and bulk forming medicines to control constipation before using this medicine.
  • You should consult your doctor or pharmacist for advice if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription.
Do not take Senokot 7.5mg Tablets 12 Years Plus if you:
  • Are allergic to any of the ingredients.
  • Have blockage or narrowing of the gastro-intestinal tract or bowel (ileus, intestinal obstruction or stenosis).
  • Have paralysis or a lack of muscle tone in the bowel (atony).
  • Have appendicitis, inflammatory bowel disease such as Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis.
  • Have severe dehydration.
  • Have persistent or undiagnosed abdominal complaints e.g pain, nausea, or vomiting.
  • Have faecal impaction or rectal bleeding for which you don't know the cause, or blood in your stools.
  • Have already taken a laxative and are still constipated.
  • Have had a sudden change in bowel habit that has lasted for more than 2 weeks.
  • Are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • Jave kidney or heart failure.
  • Are under 12 years of age.
It may be harmful to take too much of this medicine or take it for too long. This is because it may lead to:
  • 'Lazy bowel' where the muscle in the bowel becomes too relaxed. This means that bowel emptying happens less often. This can lead to long-term constipation.
  • Imbalance of fluids and salts in the body. This can affect the tightness of muscle such as those in the bowel. It can also affect the salts in the blood.
  • Low levels of potassium in the blood (called hypo-kalaemia). This can make you tired, dizzy, make your muscles weak and cause an uneven heart beat.
  • Dehydration making you thirsty, feel faint and giving you headaches. It can also mean that you cannot pass enough urine.
