Details

Overview

Contains the active ingredients macrogol and electrolytes sodium chloride, potassium chloride, sodium bicarbonate

It is used:

- To help you have a comfortable bowel movement even if you have been constipated for a long time

- Works in faecal impaction (as diagnosed by your doctor). If the product has been prescribed by your doctor, talk to your doctor if you have any questions about why this medicine was prescribed for you. Your doctor may have prescribed this medicine for another reason.

Directions

Follow carefully all directions given to you by your doctor or pharmacist. Their instructions may be different to the information in this leaflet

How to take it

Open the sachet and pour the contents into a glass. Add about 125 mL of water to the glass. Stir well until all the powder has dissolved and the solution is clear or slightly hazy, then drink it. If you like, you can add a flavour such as orange juice to the drink. If you are taking the medicine for faecal impaction, it may be easier to dissolve 8 sachets in 1 litre of water. Drink plenty of water. Increase fibre into the diet, except in cases of medication-induced constipation
