Coloxyl and Senna Tablets


Coloxyl with senna is a dual-action laxative, which provides fast relief from constipation within 6-12 hours. It contains two active ingredients: docusate sodium and senna. Docusate Sodium is a stool softener laxative that works by drawing water into the stool, making it softer, while senna is a laxative that stimulates the bowel to help push the stool out

  • Fast constipation relief within 6-12 hours
  • Overnight relief: Can be taken at night to produce a bowel motion in the morning
  • Suitable for those taking constipation-inducing medications, such as opioids
  • Easy to swallow, sugar-free film-coated tablets

Dosage Information

Coloxyl with senna is suitable for use in adults. The recommended dose is 1-2 tablets with a glass of water before bed, increasing to up to 4 tablets if required.


  • Each tablet contains: docusate sodium 50 mg, sennosides 8 mg
