Dioctyl contains docusate sodium, which belongs to a group of medicines called stimulant laxatives. You can buy Dioctyl as 100mg capsules from our online pharmacy.
Dioctyl is used to prevent and treat chronic constipation by softening the stool and making it easier to pass. Your doctor may also give it to empty the bowel before an abdominal X-ray.
Before taking laxatives for constipation, it's important to try making adjustments to your diet and lifestyle first.
If you have made changes your diet or lifestyle, but your constipation symptoms prevail, you should speak to your pharmacist for advice on which treatments are suitable for you.
Your doctor or pharmacist can inform you of the laxatives which are safe for you, based on your medical history, and advise you on how to take them.
Laxatives are not a long-term solution for constipation and should only be used for the short term. If you feel you need to use laxatives regularly to relieve constipation, arrange an appointment to speak to your GP.
If you don't have time to visit your pharmacy to buy Dioctyl capsules, you can buy Dioctyl from an online pharmacy such as Prescription Doctor. Our fast and discreet delivery service makes it easy and convenient for you to order Dioctyl online.
If your order is approved before 3pm on weekdays, our UK based pharmacy will dispatch your item the same day via a next-day delivery.
The active ingredient docusate sodium in Dioctyl capsules works in two ways. It reduces the surface tension of hard stools that accumulate in the intestine by causing water and fats to penetrate them and make the stools softer and easier to pass. The use of Dioctyl can be particularly helpful for people with piles or an anal fissure (a tear in the lining of the anus).
Docusate sodium also stimulates the nerve endings in the large intestine (colon) and rectum. This action causes increased and stronger contractions of the smooth muscles present in the walls of the large intestine. These contractions move the stools along and empty the bowels.
This dual-action helps relieve constipation without straining.
Dioctyl capsules are suitable for adults and adolescents (above the age of 12 years). The starting dose is three capsules, one at a time at regular intervals throughout the day.
If the symptoms do not improve, you can increase the dose up to five capsules per day. Do not take more than five capsules per day.
Take the capsule whole with a glass of water and do not chew it.
As your condition improves, you should gradually reduce your dosage.
The dose before an abdominal X-ray is four capsules taken as a single dose according to the doctor's guidelines.
