Laxoberon Liquid 7.5mg/ml 120ml
Laxoberon Liquid 7.5mg/ml 120ml which contains lactulose with other sugars eg, galactose and lactose, is used in the treatment of constipation and hepatic encephalopathy. Lactulose is a disaccharide, a sugar molecule composed of 2 smaller sugar molecules bonded together, in this case, fructose and galactose.
This medication is used to treat occasional constipation. Some medications and conditions can make constipation more likely. Stool softeners such as docusate are often the first method used for preventing and treating this type of constipation. It may be dangerous to give too much sodium picosulfate. Too much sodium picosulfate can cause stomach pain (cramps), diarrhea (runny poo), and may lead to dehydration if too many stools (poo) is passed.
Each dose should be taken in or with a full glass (8 ounces) or more of cold water or fruit juice. This will provide enough liquid for the laxative to work properly. A second glass of water or juice by itself is often recommended with each dose for the best effect and to avoid side effects.
Laxoberon Liquid 7.5mg is usually given twice each day, once in the morning and once in the evening. Ideally, these times are 10–12 hours apart, for example, some time between 7 and 8 am, and between 7 and 8 pm.
This medicine is used to treat constipation.
