Skilax Pharmacokinetics & Pharmacodynamics
Suifolax is chemically bisodic salt of 4-4'(2-picoliliden) - bis (- phenyl sulphuric acid). It is a locally acting laxative. It is metabolized by the colonic bacteria to the active compound bis (p-hydroxyphenyl) pyridyl-2-methane, which stimulates the mucosa of the large intestine, causing colonic peristalsis. It is usually effective within 6-12 hours.
