CosmoCol Orange Flavour Sachets

CosmoCol Orange Flavour Sachets are a laxative for the treatment of long term (chronic) constipation and faecal impaction (persistent constipation where a large volume of stools cause a blockage of the rectum and/or colon).

CosmoCol Orange Flavour Sachets contain macrogol 3350 which makes your faeces softer and easier to pass and electrolytes (salts) to help to maintain your body's normal levels of sodium, potassium and water while you are being treated.
 CosmoCol sachets can be taken at any time with or without food or drink.

Treatment of chronic constipation in adults, children aged 12 years and over and the elderly
  • The recommended dose for constipation is one sachet taken one to three times daily.
  • This course of treatment for constipation should not normally last longer than 2 weeks.
Treatment of faecal impaction in adults, children aged 12 years and over and the elderly:
  • Before you take CosmoCol sachets for faecal impaction, your doctor must check to confirm that you have this condition.
  • The recommended dose is 8 sachets daily, all of which should be consumed within 6 hours.
  • To prevent further problems from faecal impaction, your doctor may advise that you continue taking this medicine. You should use the dose for chronic constipation.
  • The course of treatment for faecal impaction should be stopped when a large volume of stools is passed and does not normally last longer than 3 days.
How to mix:
  • Open the sachet and pour the contents into a glass.
  • Add about 125 ml or a quarter pint of water to the glass.
  • Stir well until the powder has dissolved and then drink it.
  • Active Ingredients: Macrogol 3350 13.125g, sodium chloride 0.3507g, sodium hydrogen carbonate 0.1785g and potassium chloride 0.0466g.

  • If you are pregnant or breast-feeding talk to your doctor before taking CosmoCol Orange Flavour Sachets.
