How should you use Bisacodyl? Describes the Carters Little Pills dosage, how to take, doses, treatment and Bisacodyl Carters Little Pills maximum dose.

Take bisacodyl exactly as directed by your doctor or as directed on the package. If you do not understand these directions, ask your pharmacist, nurse, or doctor to explain them to you.

Take each dose with a full glass of water.

Swallow the tablets and capsules whole. Do not chew or crush them.

Do not take bisacodyl tablets within 1 hour after taking an antacid or drinking milk.

Bisacodyl is also available as a rectal suppository. To use a rectal suppository:

  • If the suppository seems soft, hold it (in its wrapping) under cold water for one or two minutes before use
  • Remove the wrapper. If directed, moisten the suppository with water or petroleum jelly
  • Lie on your side and with the pointed end first, push the suppository into the rectum so it will not slip out
  • Retain the suppository for 15 to 20 minutes. If you feel the suppository must come out immediately, it was not inserted high enough and should be pushed further into the rectum

Bisacodyl is also available for use as a rectal enema. To use a rectal enema:

  • Shake the bottle gently to make sure the suspension is mixed. Remove the protective cap from the applicator tip. Holding the bottle at the neck will not cause any of the medication to come out
  • Gently insert the tip into the rectum, pointing toward the belly button (umbilicus). A steady squeezing of the bottle will discharge most of the medication

Bisacodyl enema usually produces a bowel movement in 15 to 20 minutes. Bisacodyl suppositories usually produce a bowel movement in 15 minutes to one hour. Bisacodyl tablets usually produce a bowel movement in 6 to 12 hours. Do not take bisacodyl for more than 1 week unless otherwise directed by your doctor.
