Senokot 7.5mg/5ml Syrup 12 Years Plus

Senokot 7.5mg/5ml Syrup 12 Years Plus is an effective laxative that contains natural senna, a plant extract, which works by stimulating the muscles in the bowel. Clinically proven, this medicine is for short-term, occasional constipation and can work whilst you sleep to help to get your body back in balance. This product is available to buy from the pharmacy in 150ml.

Stimulant laxatives do not reduce the number of calories absorbed from food. This means they do not help with weight loss.
