Active Ingredient History

  • Now
Bisacodyl 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. Some drugs (e.g., diuretics, angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors, angiotensin receptor blockers, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) increase risk due to fluid and electrolyte changes. Most common adverse reactions (> 3%) are overall discomfort, abdominal fullness, abdominal cramping, nausea, and vomiting.   NCATS
