Each 15ml contains
Eq. to Lactulose
In a patable base
Lactulose 10 g/15 ml oral solution contain a laxative called lactulose. It makes the stool softer and easier to pass, by drawing water into the bowel. It is not absorbed into your body.
MECHANISM OF ACTION:
Lactulose is a synthetic disaccharide formed from D-galactose and fructose. Lactulose as a prebiotic substance strengthens the growth of bifidobacteria and lactobacilli, whereas Clostridium and Escherichia coli may be suppressed. In the colon lactulose is metabolised by bacterial enzymes to short chain fatty acids mainly lactic and acetic acid as well as methane and hydrogen. This effect leads to a decrease of the pH-value and an increase of the osmotic pressure in the colon. This causes stimulation of peristalsis and an increase of the water content of the faeces.
For the treatment of constipation.
Hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.
Flatulence may occur during the first few days of treatment. As a rule, it disappears after a couple of days. When dosages higher than instructed are used, abdominal pain and diarrhoea may occur. 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 temperature not exceeding 30o C. Protect from sunlight.
