I have been experimenting with bisacodyl tablets for enemas for a while. Bisacodyl enemas are on my bowel menu as a stronger option, and while Magic Bullets work well they are expensive compared to tablets (60 cents for a 10mg dose vs about 8 cents for 10mg of tablets).I came up with what others have termed the "Moliere method" of soaking bisacodyl tablets in a squirt of Dr. Bronner's, usually somewhere between a quarter and half teaspoon. I use peppermint, but don't know if that makes a difference. I soak them for a couple of days, after which the pills are very soft (or a suspension if I use closer to the 1/2 tsp range of Bronners). I find that this works much better than the other methods - the soaking seems to liberate the bisacodyl better than crushing, and the room temperature soak doesn't inactivate the bisacodyl the way the hot water methods can.I was wondering how long the soaked pills could be stored, as it's nice to have a few ready to go as I don't always know when I'll need them a few days in advance. I did a basic test to see - today I took an enema with 20mg of bisacodyl that had been soaking for 3 months. The bisacodyl was still potent and did a good job, so I'm now a little more confident that I can have some bottles ready to go without worrying about degradation.
