Dulcolax Pico Liquid contains a medicine called sodium picosulfate. This belongs to a group of medicines called laxatives used for relief of constipation. Dulcolax Pico Liquid gently stimulates the muscles of the bowel (large intestine). This brings predictable, overnight relief from constipation, helping to return the body to its natural rhythm.
This medicine does not help with weight loss.
