DESCRIPTION:

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.

 

INDICATIONS:

For the treatment of constipation.

 

CONTRAINDICATIONS:

Hypersensitivity to the active substance or any of the excipients.

 

SIDE EFFECTS:

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.

 

DOSAGE:

As directed by the physician.

 

DIRECTIONS:

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.

 

STORAGE:

Store at a temperature not exceeding 30o C. Protect from sunlight.
