SENOKOT Children's Syrup is packaged with a free measuring cup to help assure accurate dosing. Formulated without alcohol, Senokot Children's Syrup has an appealing chocolaty flavor. It may be given with ice cream or stirred into milk. Its natural active ingredient is concentrated, making it effective with smaller doses than other children's laxatives.

Do not use laxative products when abdominal pain, nausea, or vomiting are present unless directed by a doctor. If there has been a sudden change in the child's bowel movements that persists over a period of 2 weeks, consult a doctor before using a laxative. Laxative products should not be used for a period longer than 1 week unless directed by a doctor. Rectal bleeding or failure to have a bowel movement after use of a laxative may indicate a serious condition. Discontinue use and consult a doctor. As with any drug, if the user is pregnant or nursing a baby, seek the advice of a health professional before taking this product. In case of accidental overdose, seek professional assistance or contact a Poison Control Center immediately. Keep out of children's reach.
