Dulcolax Use In Pregnancy & Lactation





Full Prescribing Info
Use In Pregnancy & Lactation
Pregnancy: There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Long experience has shown no evidence of undesirable or damaging effects during pregnancy. Nevertheless, as with all drugs, DULCOLAX should be taken during pregnancy only on medical advice.
Enteric-coated tablet: The usual precautions regarding the use of drugs during pregnancy, particularly during the first trimester, should be observed.
Lactation: Clinical data show that neither the active moiety of bisacodyl BHPM (bis-(p-hydroxyphenyl)-pyridyl-2-methane) nor its glucuronides are excreted into the milk of healthy lactating human females.
Thus, DULCOLAX can be used during breast-feeding.
Fertility: No studies on the effect on human fertility have been conducted.
