Active ingredients:
Macrogol 3350 13.125g, Sodium Chloride 350.7mg, Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate 178.5mg, Potassium Chloride 46.6mg.

Usage and Instructions:
Chronic Constipation:
 A 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. Extended use may be necessary in the care of patients with severe chronic or resistant constipation, secondary to multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s Disease, or induced by regular constipating medication in particular opioids and antimuscarinics.
Adults, adolescents and the elderly: Take 1-3 sachets daily in divided doses, according to individual response. For extended use, the dose can be adjusted down to 1 or 2 sachets daily.
Children below 12 years old: Not recommended.

Faecal Impaction:
A course of treatment for faecal impaction with Laxido Orange does not normally exceed 3 days.
Adults, adolescents and the elderly: Take 8 sachets daily, all of which should be consumed within a 6 hour period.
Children below 12 years old: Not recommended.
Patients with impaired cardiovascular function: For the treatment of faecal impaction the dose should be divided so that no more than 2 sachets are taken in any one hour.
Patients with renal insufficiency: No dosage change is necessary for the treatment of constipation or faecal impaction.

Method of Administration:
Each sachet should be dissolved in 125 ml water. For use in faecal impaction, 8 sachets may be dissolved in 1 litre of water.

Warnings:
Laxido Orange is contraindicated in intestinal obstruction or perforation caused by functional or structural disorder of the gut wall, ileus and in patients with severe inflammatory conditions of the intestinal tract.
The absorption of other medicinal products could transiently be reduced due to an increase in gastro-intestinal transit rate induced by Laxido Orange.
Consult your doctor if your symptoms do not improve after two weeks or if they get worse during treatment with this medicine.

Side Effects:
Mild diarrhoea may occur, but it usually responds to dose reduction.
