What is Senokot Syrup?

Senokot Syrup is a treatment for short-term constipation which works overnight to relieve constipation. If you’re struggling with constipation and looking for relief that will get to work fast, Senokot Syrup could be the solution for you.


What causes constipation?

If you haven’t had three or less bowel movements over the course of a week, you could be constipated. Some of the most common causes of constipation are:

  • Not enough fibre in your diet.
  • Not drinking enough fluids.
  • A change in your diet.
  • Medication.
  • Not being active enough.
  • A change in your daily routine.
  • Stress, anxiety, or depression.
  • Consistently ignoring the urge to go to the toilet.


How does Senokot Syrup treat constipation?

Senokot Syrup contains the active ingredient Senna, a natural ingredient which comes from the leaves and fruit of the senna plant.  This natural substance helps to relieve constipation by encouraging the muscles in your bowel to move stools through your body, helping you to pass them more easily.


How to take this product to treat constipation.

If you are an adult or are treating a child over the age of 12, take one or two 5ml spoonfuls at night. Repeat until your bowel movements have become regular. You will normally only need to use this product two or three times a week. If you need to use this product for more than 1 – 2 weeks, speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist. For more information about the correct dosage for children under the age of 12, please read the patient information leaflet carefully.


When should Senokot Syrup not be used?

Senokot Syrup is not suitable for children under the age of 2. Always make sure children who use this product are doing so under medical supervision. Do not take Senokot Syrup if you are allergic to any of the listed ingredients. Do not use Senokot Syrup if you:

  • Have a blockage or narrowing of your gastrointestinal tract or bowel.
  • Have paralysis or lack of muscle tone in the bowel.
  • Have appendicitis.
  • Have an inflammatory bowel disease such as Chron’s disease or ulcerative colitis.
  • Have severe dehydration.
  • Have undiagnosed abdominal pain or other abdominal complaints.
  • Suffer from faecal impaction or rectal bleeding for which you do not know the cause.
  • Have already taken a laxative and are still constipated.
  • Have had a sudden change in bowel habit that has lasted longer than 2 weeks.
  • Have kidney or heart failure.
  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding.


Does this product have side effects?

  • Abdominal pain, spasms, and diarrhoea.
  • Allergic reactions such as hives, itchiness, rash, or asthma.
  • Can make you more likely to catch infections.

Don’t you just hate blockages? Whether it is in the nose and you struggle to breathe through it and smell, or whether it is a traffic jam caused by an accident that leaves you stuck on the road, they are a pain.


The same can be said about constipation, a simple blockage in the digestive system that can cause a lot of problems. To find the solution to constipation, first, you need to know the cause.
