Laxido Orange Sachets are used to treat constipation and faecal impaction (feces buildup caused by chronic constipation). It contains Macrogol 3350, a laxative treatment that softens feces, making it easier to pass and relieving constipation symptoms. It is also formulated with electrolytes to help keep your body's normal levels of sodium, potassium, and water while treating constipation.
Constipation is a common condition that affects people of all ages. It is usually treatable at home and is rarely a serious problem. Constipation symptoms include the following:
- Failure to pass a stool (poo) at least three times per week
- Stools are frequently difficult to remove and larger than usual.
- Stools are frequently dry, hard, or lumpy.
- Stomach ache or nausea
Constipation can have a variety of causes, some of which are obvious, but the most common ones are as follows:
- Not getting enough fiber from fruits, vegetables, and cereals
- Drinking insufficient fluids
- Inactivity and long periods of sitting or lying in bed
- Being less active and failing to exercise
- Frequently ignoring the urge to use the restroom
- Altering your diet or routine
- A medication side effect
- Anxiety, stress, or depression
- This is common during pregnancy and for the first 6 weeks after giving birth.
- A medical condition (in rare cases) is to blame.
Long-term constipation can result in faecal impaction, a condition in which feces (poo) accumulates in your rectum. The main symptom is diarrhoea following a long period of constipation.
Laxido contains the active ingredient Macrogol 3350, which softens hard feces by absorbing water into them, making them easier to pass and providing constipation relief. It can also be used to empty your bowels before a colonoscopy (a test to look inside your bowels). This medication comes in the form of a powder that must be dissolved in water before being administered orally (by mouth). This medicine also contains electrolytes, sodium chloride, sodium hydrogen carbonate, and potassium chloride to keep your sodium, potassium, and water levels normal while you treat your constipation symptoms.
How long does Laxido Orange take to work?
Laxido can take 1 to 2 days to work because the active ingredient, Macrogol 3350, takes this long to soften your feces and allow them to pass more easily.
