6. Contents of the pack and other information

1. What Dulcolax Twelve Plus Suppositories are

and what they are used for.

Dulcolax Twelve Plus Suppositories are used for the

short-term relief of occasional constipation. Dulcolax

Twelve Plus Suppositories contain bisacodyl which

belongs to a group of medicines known as stimulant

laxatives, which increase bowel movements. This

medicine does not help with weight loss.

What is constipation?

Normal and regular bowel movement is important

for most people. However, what is “normal and

regular” varies from person to person. Some may

have a bowel movement every day, others less often.

Whatever it is like for you, it is best that your bowel

movement has a regular pattern.

Constipation is an occasional problem for some

people; for others, it may happen more often

It happens when the normal muscle actions in the

bowel (large intestine) slow down. This can mean

that the material is not easily eliminated from the

body

The cause of constipation is often not known. It can

be associated with:

Sudden change of diet

A diet with not enough fibre

Not drinking enough fluids

Loss of ‘tone' of the bowel muscles in older people

Pregnancy

Medicines such as morphine or codeine

Having to stay in bed for a long time

Lack of exercise

Whatever the cause, constipation is uncomfortable.

It may make you feel bloated and heavy, or generally

“off colour”. Sometimes it causes headaches.

It is recommended to use changes in diet and bulk

forming medicines to control constipation before

using this medicine.

These healthy tips are recommended to try and

prevent constipation happening:

Eat a balanced diet including fresh fruit and

vegetables

Drink enough water so that you do not become

dehydrated

Keep up your exercise and stay fit

Make time to empty your bowels when your body

tells you

2. What you need to know before you use Dulcolax

Twelve Plus Suppositories

Do not use Dulcolax Twelve Plus Suppositories if:

You are allergic (hypersensitive) to bisacodyl or

hard fat

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

You have a blocked bowel (intestinal obstruction)

You have inflammation of the bowel (small or large

intestine)

You have cracking of the skin around your back

passage (anal fissures)

You have inflammation or ulcers around your back

passage (ulcerative proctitis)

Do not take this medicine if any of the above applies

to you. Do not use in children under the age of

12 years. If you are not sure, talk to your pharmacist

or doctor before using this medicine.

Does this help with weight loss?

Stimulant laxatives (including Dulcolax Twelve Plus

Suppositories) do not help with weight loss. They do

not reduce the absorption of calories or nutrients.

They can cause watery stools (diarrhoea), abdominal

cramps and dehydration. Dehydration can seem like

weight loss.

Overuse of laxatives may damage your health by:

Causing disturbances of electrolyte and mineral

balances. Sodium, potassium, magnesium, and

phosphorus are electrolytes and minerals that are

present in very specific amounts necessary for

proper functioning of the nerves and muscles,

including those of the colon and heart. Upsetting

this delicate balance can cause incorrect functioning

of these vital organs.

Severe dehydration may cause tremors, weakness,

blurry vision, fainting, kidney damage, and, in

extreme cases, death. Dehydration often requires

medical treatment.

Overuse of laxatives must be avoided as it may

harm the intestinal function

Other medicines and Dulcolax Twelve Plus

Suppositories

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, have

recently taken or might take any other medicines. This

is because Dulcolax Twelve Plus Suppositories can

affect the way some other medicines work. Also, some

other medicines can affect the way Dulcolax Twelve

Plus Suppositories work.

In particular, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you

are taking:

Water tablets (diuretics) such as bendrofluazide or

furosemide (frusemide)

Steroid medicines such as prednisolone.

Other laxative medicines.

If you are not sure if any of the above applies to you,

talk to your pharmacist or doctor before using

Dulcolax Twelve Plus Suppositories.

3. How to use Dulcolax Twelve Plus Suppositories

Always use this medicine exactly as described in this

leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist has told you.

Check with your pharmacist if you are not sure.

If this medicine is from your doctor or pharmacist, do

exactly as they have told you. Otherwise, follow the

instructions below. If you do not understand the

instructions, or if you are not sure, ask your

pharmacist or doctor.

As with all laxatives, Dulcolax Twelve Plus

Suppositories should not be used every day for more

than 5 days. If you need laxatives every day, or if you

have abdominal pain which does not go away, you

should see your doctor.

How to use the suppositories

The suppositories should only be used in your back

passage.

1. Take off the foil wrapping

2. Lie on one side and pull your knees up towards

your chest. Keep one leg drawn up more than

the other

3. Use your first finger (index finger) or middle finger

to push in the suppository

4. Gently push the suppository as far as possible into

your back passage, pointed end first

5. Once it is as far as it will go, push it side-ways to

make sure it touches the wall of the bowel

6. Lower your legs to a comfortable position whilst

the suppository is retained in place

7. Keep the suppository inside you for at least

30 minutes

If you feel the suppository might come out straight

away:

You may not have put it in high enough. Push it in

as far as possible

Try to keep it in for 30 minutes, even if you feel like

you urgently need to go to the toilet. This is how

long it takes to work

How much to use

Adults and children 12 years and over:

Put one 10 mg suppository into the back passage for

immediate effect (they usually have a laxative effect

within 10 to 30 minutes). Only use one suppository

per day. This should not be used in children or

adolescents under the age of 12 years.

Length of treatment

These suppositories should not be used 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. Overuse can be harmful.

If you use more Dulcolax Twelve Plus

Suppositories than you should

It may be harmful to:

Use too many Dulcolax Twelve Plus Suppositories

Use Dulcolax Twelve Plus Suppositories for too long

This is because using 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.

4. Possible side effects

Like all medicines, Dulcolax Twelve Plus Suppositories

can cause side effects, although not everybody gets

them. If you experience any of the following side

effects, please stop using the medicines and see your

doctor straight away:

Rare side effects (affect less than 1 in 1000 people)

of the face or throat and difficulty in breathing or

dizziness. If you have a severe allergic reaction, stop

taking this medicine and see a doctor straight away.
