Description

OsmoLax is clinically proven to provide effective relief of constipation. It works to restore the natural bowel rhythm by using orally taken fluids to hydrate and soften the stool so it's easier to pass. OsmoLax generally produces a bowel movement in 1 to 3 days. OsmoLax is flavourless, sugar free and salt free, and contains no artificial flavours, colours or sweeteners. With no salty taste, it can be mixed with any hot or cold drink. For adults and children over 4 years.

This can be increased to a maximum of 2 doses of 17g daily, dependent on the severity of your constipation. For chronic constipation, the dose may be reduced to one 8.5g scoop mixed with ½ cup (approximately 120mL) of liquid daily, according to individual response.
