INTRODUCTION

HALLENS B10 contains Bisacodyl which is a laxative and helps you empty your bowels. It is used in the treatment of acute constipation. It acts as a stimulant laxative for short term treatment of constipation and for emptying the bowel.

Constipation is an occasional problem for some people, for others, it may happen more often when the normal muscle actions in the bowel (large intestine) slow down. This can mean that the material is not easily eliminated from the body.

Always use this medicine as directed by physician. Do not swallow. Do not take HALLENS B10 if you have severe abdominal pain with nausea and vomiting. Inform your doctor if you have liver, kidney and heart problems. It should be used in children only if recommended by a doctor. It should be avoided in the first three months of pregnancy. It can be used during breastfeeding. Tell your doctor if you are taking or taken or might take any other medicines. The most common side effects include abdominal cramps or pain, diarrhoea and nausea.
