Galpharm Lost Fluid Replacement Sachets

Galpharm Lost Fluid Replacement Sachets contain a combination of salts and sugars designed to help replace fluids and salts lost through diarrhoea to treat and prevent dehydration. They are blackcurrant flavoured.

Galpharm Lost Fluid Replacement Sachets are suitable for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Mix the contents of 1 sachet with 200 ml (7 fluid ounces) of fresh drinking water and drink immediately. When fresh drinking water is not available, freshly boiled and cooled water should be used. For infants under 1 year, use freshly boiled and cooled water only.
  • Adults, the elderly and children over 12 years: 1 or 2 sachets after each loose motion, as required.
  • Children 1 to 12 years: 1 sachet after each loose motion.
  • Infants under 1 year: Not to be given unless instructed by your doctor. In such cases, it is usual to give 1 to 1½ times the usual 24 hour feed volume of the infant. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice if you are not sure how much to give.
The medicine should be used within 1 hour, but if refrigerated, can be kept for up to 24 hours.

During the first 24 hours of illness, this treatment should replace normal feeds in bottle fed babies, gradually resuming normal feeds as the baby gets better. In breast fed babies, firstly give the amount of this medicine recommended and then breast feed until satisfied.
  • Active Ingredients: Dextrose monohydrate 3.58g, sodium chloride 470mg, potassium chloride 300mg, sodium citrate dihydrate 390mg and citric acid anhydrous 128mg.
  • Other Ingredients: Colloidal anhydrous silica, blackcurrant flavour and aspartame (E951).

If the diarrhoea and/or vomiting is severe the child should be seen by a doctor as soon as possible.
