Senokot Max Strength Tablets Adult

Senokot Max Strength Tablets Adult are effective laxatives that contain 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 shelf in packs of 10 or alternatively, available in 24s and 48s at the pharmacy.

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