Senokot Max Strength Tablets Adult contain Senna/Sennosides which work as a stimulant laxative for the short term relief of occasional constipation in adults aged 18 and over. Stimulant laxatives do not reduce the absorption of calories or nutrients, therefore they do not help with weight loss.
New users should start with the lowest dose and increase it to the maximum dose if necessary. Once regularity has been regained dosage should be reduced and stopped.
Adults and the elderly: Swallow one tablet at night with a drink of water, unless otherwise advised by your doctor.
Normally it is sufficient to take this medicine up to two to three times a week. Not to be used for more than one week.
Tell a doctor, pharmacist or nurse if:
The symptoms worsen, or persist during the use of the medicinal product
There is no bowel movement within 3 days of use
You need to take laxatives every day or if abdominal pain persists.
