Senokot 3x20sis virtually colon-specific. The active glycosides are protected by a natural sugar moiety which safeguards their transport to the large bowel, where bacterial action breaks the sugar-anthrone bond and releases the active fraction. Peristalsis is then stimulated via the submucosal and myenteric nerve plexuses.

Active Ingredient:

  • Simple constipation, whether self-induced or environmental eg, neglect of the call to stool or poor sanitary conditions.
  • Constipation in old age, especially where maintenance treatment is required.
  • Constipation in pregnancy and the puerperium. Idiopathic slow-transit constipation.
  • Constipation in the irritable bowel syndrome.
  • Conservative treatment of haemorrhoids. Avoidance of straining after surgery and in cerebral and cardiovascular disease.
