Indications: Dulcogotas is a Non-Prescription Medicine belonging to the group of medicines known as contact laxatives. The active substance, sodium picosulfate, is a laxative with local action of the triarylmethane group, which undergoes bacterial cleavage in the colon, stimulates the intestinal mucosa and causes peristalsis in the colon, promoting the accumulation of water and electrolytes and consequent stimulation of defecation.

Dulcogotas is contraindicated in case of known allergy or hypersensitivity to sodium picosulfate or any other component of the drug, in case of ileus, intestinal obstruction, acute abdominal conditions, appendicitis, acute inflammatory bowel disease and severe abdominal pain associated with nausea and vomiting, in case of severe dehydration, in case of serious hereditary diseases that are incompatible with any constituent of Dulcogotas.
