Senokot S Drug Information
Senokot S Overview
Sennosides are used to treat constipation. They may also be used to clean out the intestines before a bowel examination/surgery. Sennosides are known as stimulant laxatives. They work by keeping water in the intestines, which causes movement of the intestines.
How to Use Senokot S
Take Senokot S by mouth as directed by your doctor. If you are self-treating, follow all directions on the product package. If you are uncertain about any of the information, ask your doctor or pharmacist. If you are using the chewable tablets, chew each tablet well and swallow. If you are using the dissolving strips, allow each strip to dissolve on the tongue and then swallow, with or without water. If you are using the liquid form of Senokot S, measure the dose carefully using a special measuring device/cup. Do not use a household spoon because you may not get the correct dose. Dosage of Senokot S is based on your age, medical condition, and response to treatment. Do not increase your dose or take Senokot S more often than directed. Do not take Senokot S for more than 7 days unless directed by your doctor. Serious side effects may occur with overuse of Senokot S (see also Side Effects section). It may take 6 to 12 hours before Senokot S causes a bowel movement. Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens, or if bleeding from the rectum occurs.
