Duphalac Lactulose Crystalline Powder 30 Sachets Is No Regular Laxative. It Helps To Retain Water In The Colon, Softening Faeces And Ensuring That Normal Colonic Peristalsis Occurs To Help The Body Naturally And Easily Expel Waste.

Pack Size: 30 Sachets 

Dosage and Directions: (a) Constipation: The dosage for constipation can be varied according to the individual response, but the following serves as a guide. Starting dose (3 days) - Maintenance dose. Gram per day - gram per day: Adults: 10-30 g - 10-20 g. Children 7-14 years: 10 g - 10 g. Children 1-6 years: 5-10 g - 5-10 g. If there is no response within 48 hours the dosage can be increased and if diarrhoea occurs the dosage should be decreased. Since Duphalac dry exerts its effect when it reaches the colon it may take 1-2 days before normal defaecation occurs. (b) Portal systemic encephalopathy: Starting dose 20-35 g three times a day. Maintenance dose has to be adjusted to the individual response. Duphalac dry can be best taken with breakfast cereals, or drinks such as tea, coffee, fruit juice or milk.

Storage instructions: Store below 25 degrees C.

Warnings: Keep out of reach of children. Side-effects and special precautions: Duphalac may cause abdominal discomfort associated with flatulence or cramps. Nausea and vomiting have been reported less frequently following high doses. Care should be taken in patients with lactose intolerance and in diabetic patients because of the presence of galactose and lactose. Prolonged use or overdosage may result in diarrhoea with excessive loss of water and electrolytes, particularly potassium. Known symptoms of overdosage and particulars of its treatment: See "side-effects and special precautions". Treatment is symptomatic and supportive.
