Senokot tablets are used as a stimulant laxative for the treatment of constipation. Senokot tablets contain the active herbal ingredient senna which provides overnight relief from constipation. Stimulant laxatives stimulate the nerves of the lower intestine increasing gut motility which provides rapid relief from constipation. Stimulant laxatives may cause abdominal cramping and diarrhoea. Stimulant laxatives should not be used regularly.
Directions for use:
For adults only, take 2 to 4 tablets in 24 hours usually taken at night. Not suitable for use in children.
