DESCRIPTION:
Liquid paraffin is a highly refined mineral oil used in cosmetics and medical purposes. Magnesium hydroxide is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula Mg(OH)2. As a suspension in water, it is often called milk of magnesia because of its milk-like appearance.

MECHANISM OF ACTION:
Milk of magnesia increases the osmotic gradient in the gut and stimulates peristalsis resulting in efficient bowel evacuation. Liquid paraffin lubricates the bowel and softens the stools.

INDICATIONS:
Milk of magnesia is used as an antacid to neutralize stomach acid and provide relief from heartburn, upset stomach, or indigestion., and as a laxative. Also, for bowel clearance before radioscopy.

CONTRAINDICATIONS:
Hypersensitivity to any ingredient; nausea, vomiting, or other symptoms of appendicitis, acute abdominal surgery, intestinal obstruction, undiagnosed abdominal pain, pregnancy, and lactation.

SIDE EFFECTS:
Liquid paraffin may cause perianal pruritus and interfere with post-operative healing following anorectal surgery. A small amount of magnesium gets absorbed in the circulation and may cause occasional toxicity, particularly in the presence of kidney damage.

DRUG INTERACTIONS:
Laxatives containing magnesium salt impair absorption of tetracyclines and quinolone antibiotics.

DOSAGE:
As directed by the physician.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Megalax is best taken at bedtime with lukewarm water and, if necessary, again in the morning.
Prolonged use is not recommended.

STORAGE:
Store in a cool and dry place. Protect from direct sunlight.
