Bisacodyl Overview

Bisacodyl (INN) is an organic compound that is used as a stimulant laxative drug. It works directly on the colon to produce a bowel movement. It is typically prescribed for relief of constipation and for the management of neurogenic bowel dysfunction, as well as part of bowel preparation before medical examinations, such as for a colonoscopy.[1] Bisacodyl is a derivative of triphenylmethane.

small peach pill, round APO on one side, BI over 5 on the other side can anyone tell me what this is? ## I can't be 100% certain, because some of these Canadian Apotex markings are difficult to track down, however, from their site, I think this might be a 5mg Bisacodyl tablet. Bisacodyl is a stimulant laxative, which may cause side effects, such as nausea, stomach pain and abdominal cramping. Is anyone familiar with these tablets? ## How long does it take to work ## Did you ever find out what this pill is? I just found one in my baby’s room and I’m trying to figure out what it is.

Small Round Orange Pill 5 On It

small round orange pill with a number five on it ## Hi Tiff, There's actually two different pills that fit this description. The first is Bisacodyl (5 mg), which is typically prescribed for relief of constipation. And the other pill is Citalopram hydrobromide (10 mg); which is an antidepressant drug used to treat major depression associated with mood disorders. Do either of these two drugs sound familiar?

tcl 008 small round orange pill

Hi. I would like to know the purpose of this pill (i.e. what is it used for?). I found it after the death of my aunt. ## I think the marking you're looking at may actually be TCL 003, it is manufactured by Time Cap Laboratories and they list it as containing 5mgs of Bisacodyl, which is a laxative that is used to treat constipation. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, cramping, and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? I am so very sorry for your loss.

round pink pill with 5 one side blank other

I found a tiny dark pink pill, smoorh coated with nothing on one side and a black 5 printed in the center on other side...anybody? Not scored ## Hi Rose, Based on your description, the closest match I located is a round "orange" pill with a 5 on one side (in black ink) and blank on the other. The entire pill also appears to be glossy/smooth coated. In any case, this particular pill is reportedly identified as a 5mg Bisacodyl tablet, used for the short-term treatment of constipation. For added verification, the manufacturer is listed as Major Pharma and the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 00904-7927. I hope this helps!

amox clauv 875 mg

Hi. My wife is taking amos/clauv 575 mg for an infection. At the same time she has some constipation (she never takes laxatives because she doesn't suffer of constipation, very rarely). Is it ok to take a bisacodyl 5mg or a sennosides ups 15 mg laxative at the same time as the antibiotics (amos/clauv 875 mg)? ## Hello, Esteban! How is your wife doing? I wouldn't suggest that she do so, unless her doctor okays it, because this antibiotic can actually cause diarrhea as a side effect, after she takes several doses of it. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness and non-allergic skin rash. Is she on any other medications?
