Dulcolax

Active Ingredient(s): Bisacodyl
Category: Laxative



Dulcolax 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. It was first used as a laxative in 1953 because of its structural similarity to pheno...

DW hot pink pill (tiny)

The pill is hot pink and it's the size of a mini m&m. It has the letters DW on one side and it's blank on the other. It is round. I do believe it's an over-the-counter drug. ## Hi Violet, I haven't found an exact match to your pill, but from what others have mentioned, I think it may be "Dulcolax for Women" (an over-the-counter laxative containing Bisacodyl). Someone else was told that their pink pill was a generic oxycodone 20mg tablet. However, Dulcolax for Women seems to make a lot more sense with the abbreviated imprint "DW"; seeing as they haven't confirmed oxycodone to be a possible match either. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Bisacodyl Details Can anyone else confirm this identification? ## That tiny hot pink pill with t...

dulcolax , aciloc , lyser , nidare

my doctor tol;d me to take these tablets. i just want to know these medicines drug information. ## Hello, Shiju! How are you? The Ducolax is just a stool softener, to prevent constipation. The Aciloc contains the active ingredient Ranitidine, which is an antacid, it's used to treat or prevent conditions such as ulcers, GERD, heartburn and gastritis, which means it was likely given to prevent the stomach irritation that the Lyser can cause, since it contains the active ingredient Diclofenac, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. Unfortunately, I can't find any information on anything under the name Nidare. Can you please double check the name and spelling? Thanks!

dulcolax pills

I was instructed to take 4 tables and 268mg Miralax for my colon test which I did and then later in the evening I had a seizure and was transported to the hospital not knowing anything for several hours. I was in ICU for 2 days. Could this have been from the medication I took for test. They did MRI, and all kinds of tests but could not come up with an answer. I had never had a seizure in my life. ## Hello, Pat! How are you? Sorry about what happened to you. I doubt it could have been caused by the laxatives and if the doctors don't think so, then that also casts further doubt on it. But why did they have you prep with them, rather than just doing a regular bowel prep?

sulfameth/trimeth-DS

two pills per day for 30 days. ## Sulfameth/trimeth ds was prescribed to me for a staff infection in my right eye. I asked my doctor and pharmacist if it causes constipation. Their reply was no, but I am experiencing it. It makes my eyes sensitive to sunlight, and my left arm was twitching a little. I have head aches and I feel very fatigued. I just hope my bowels return to normal after this whole cycle is done with. ## Well, if you are taking the medication for 30days or more, you should not let the constipation last that long, it can be dangerous. You can try fiber tablets or stool softeners such as Dulcolax to get things moving again. In most cases, your doctor and pharmacist would be correct, antiobiotics usually cause the opposite in most people who take them, but there are the rar...
