Eq. to Lactulose
In a patable base
Lactulose 10 g/15 ml oral solution contains a laxative called lactulose. It makes the stool softer and easier to pass by drawing water into the bowel, and it is not absorbed into your body.
MECHANISM OF ACTION:
Lactulose is a synthetic disaccharide formed from D-galactose and fructose. Lactulose is a prebiotic substance that strengthens the growth of bifidobacteria and lactobacilli, whereas Clostridium and Escherichia coli may be suppressed. In the colon, lactulose is metabolized by bacterial enzymes to short-chain fatty acids, mainly lactic and acetic acid, methane, and hydrogen. This effect leads to a decrease in the pH value and an increase in the colon’s osmotic pressure. This causes stimulation of peristalsis and an increase in the water content of the faeces.
For the treatment of constipation.
Hypersensitivity to the active substance or any of the excipients.
Flatulence may occur during the first few days of treatment, and as a rule, it disappears after a couple of days. Abdominal pain and diarrhea may occur when dosages are higher than instructed, and in such a case, the dosage should be decreased.
As directed by the physician.
The dosage is patient-dependent, and the following serves as a guide. Constipation: 15 to 45 ml per day, depending on the severity of the condition. Portal systemic encephalopathy (PSE) 30 to 15 ml three times daily. Salmonellosis 30 to 90 ml per day.
Store at a temperature not exceeding 30o C. Protect from sunlight.
