FAQ

How long does Dulcolax take to produce a bowel movement?

You should expect to have a bowel movement within 6 to 12 hours after taking a Dulcolax tablet. Depending on how the medication interacts with your body and how quickly it is metabolized, you may feel the effects at different times compared to others. Speak with a doctor if no bowel movements occur after 72 hours.

How long does it take for diarrhea to wear off?

Dulcolax is a stimulant laxative which may lead to diarrhea. The medication takes between 6 or 8 hours to produce its full effects and will remain in your system for over 16 hours. Bisacodyl, however, is metabolized by half within this time and continues to decrease after each consecutive 16 hours. Natural bulking foods could also help slow diarrhea, including bananas and pasta.
