Laxsol (Docusate sodium with sennosides): Supply issue resolved

Supplies of Laxsol (2069482) are being released.

Supply update 16 August 2023

A shipment has arrived and stock levels are replenished.  

Reason for the issue

There has been a shortage of the raw materials used to make Laxsol.


Supply has been constrained but stock has been available. In late July 2023 a large shipment arrived and there is now enough stock available so that we are confident closing this supply issue

Monthly dispensing

To help spread the available supply, Laxsol has been on monthly dispensing from 1 July 2022, rather than all-at-once (stat) dispensing. The Online Schedule(external link) is updated to reflect this.

Who to contact

We recommend pharmacies get in touch with their wholesalers about availability of Laxsol.
