Senokot Syrup is a fruit flavoured laxative syrup that provides effective relief from constipation. In a smaller dose, it may also be used to treat symptoms in young children from two years of age.
Senokot Syrup is a reliable and effective laxative made with calcium sennosides (senna). Sennosides work by making bowel muscles contract more often and with more force. This increased muscle action moves bowel contents to the rectum to be emptied and relieves constipation. A 5ml spoonful of Senokot Syrup contains calcium sennosides equivalent to 7.5mg total sennosides (calculated as sennosides B) in a fruit flavoured base. When taken at night it can bring gentle, natural relief from constipation..
Adults and children over 12: take two 5ml spoonfuls at night. Children over 6 years of age: take one 5ml spoonful in the morning. Children aged between 2-6 years can take this medicine under the guidance of a medical practitioner.
