Laxido Orange Sugar Free Sachets

Laxido Orange Sugar Free Sachets are a laxative used to treat chronic constipation, and are also effective in resolving faecal impaction (build up in the bowel as diagnosed by a medical professional). The main ingredient, Macrogol 3350 works by absorbing water into the stool, making it softer and easier to pass through the bowel.

Laxido Sachets are convenient, single dose sachets that dissolve in water for a tasty, sugar free orange flavoured drink.

Directions

Adults, adolescents over 12 and the elderly: Dissolve 1 sachet in 125ml water, 1-3 times daily. For extended use, the dose can be adjusted down to 1 or 2 sachets daily.

The course of treatment for chronic constipation with Laxido Orange does not normally exceed 2 weeks, although this can be repeated if required. As for all laxatives, prolonged use is not usually recommended.

For faecal impaction:
