How much and how often should you use the product?
Bisacodyl is taken orally, usually in the evening. Bisacodyl normally works within 6 to 12 hours.
It is recommended that a person take only one 5 mg bisacodyl tablet a day. Do not take it for more than one week without talking to your doctor.
Swallow the tablet whole with one glass of water. Do not split, chew, or crush the tablet as it can release all of the medication too soon.
