BISALAX contains bisacodyl as the active ingredient. Bisacodyl is a stimulant laxative and is used to provide relief from constipation or to empty the large bowel before some medical procedures, operations or X-rays. It acts on the wall of the large bowel, encouraging bowel movements by increasing muscle contractions which push the stool mass along.
