Information about Tab. Laxit-5mg

The active ingredient of Laxit is Bisacodyl which belongs to a group of medicines known as stimulant laxatives. Stimulant laxatives increase bowel movements. Laxit directly increases the motility of the intestine, thereby making the stool soft and easier to pass.




Laxit is used in the treatment of chronic or recent constipation.

It is also used to evacuate the bowels before surgery, labour or X-rays.

Direction to Use

  • Tablets should be taken with water and should be swallowed whole not chewed or crushed.
  • Do not take antacids within one hour of taking Bisacodyl.
  • These tablets should not be used every day for long periods. If laxatives are needed every day, then you should go and see your doctor.

Side Effects

  • Dehydration.
  • Prolonged use can lead to ‘lazy bowels’ (atonic non-functioning colon) and further cases of severe constipation.
  • It can also cause hypokalaemia (low blood potassium), gripping pains and abdominal cramps
