Description

Lactulose is used to treat constipation.

Lactulose is not metabolised or absorbed by the body and the substance helps pull water into the colon, softening the stool. Lactulose also works by promoting peristalsis, pushing food through the digestive system.

Ingredients

Lactulose (67.0% w/v), lactose and galactose.

Usage and Instructions

Adults:

Initially take 15-30ml daily for first 2-3 days (45ml may be given in obstinate cases) then 10-15ml daily or according to the need of the patient.

Children:

Initially take 10-25ml daily for first 2-3 days then 5-15ml daily or according to the need of the patient.

Dosage does not appear to be related to the age or weight of the child and should be adjusted to produce the required response.
