Laxido is a laxative that used to treat constipation that has been present for a long time as well as faecal impaction. The main ingredient macrogol 3350, works by absorbing water into the stool and increases the volume and water content of stools. This helps relieve constipation as the stools pass through the bowel more easily.

What are Laxido Orange Macrogol Laxative Sachets Sugar-Free?

Laxido Orange sachets are designed to treat constipation. They work by making your faeces softer and easier to pass, easing constipation. The active ingredient, macrogol 3350, also works to restore the body’s natural electrolytes using sodium, potassium and water while you are being treated for constipation.

 

What causes constipation?

Constipation is caused by a number of different conditions. Constipation itself is not a condition, but a symptom. It can be a symptom of a number of different conditions, which includes:

  • A lack of fibre in food and drink
  • A change in lifestyle, such as changing what you eat and drink
  • Ignoring the urge to go to the toilet (particularly common in children)
  • A lack of exercise
  • Being underweight or overweight
  • Anxiety 
  • Depression
Constipation can affect anyone, regardless of age or health. Normally, it only affects someone for a short period of time. However, it can also be a long-term problem that is difficult to treat. 

How does Laxido help to relieve the effects of constipation?

Laxido provides relief for constipation thanks to the active ingredient macrogol 3350. Also known as polyethylene glycol, macrogol 3350 is a drug that is used in laxatives for both short-term use and well as long-term conditions, such as in multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's Disease. Macrogol 3350 works with electrolytes in order to treat constipation. It works by causing water to be absorbed into stools in the bowel, instead of the body. This helps to make to stools easier to pass, as well as improving the movements of the digestive system. 

Who is Laxido Orange suitable for?

It is suitable for adults and children aged 12 and over. You should not use Laxido Orange if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in the sachets. 

You should also not use this treatment if you:

  • Have a perforation in the wall of your intestine
  • Are suffering from a blocked intestine
  • Have ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, or toxic megacolon

 

Is Laxido Orange suitable to use if pregnant or breastfeeding?

Yes, it is safe to use. Though it is recommended that you speak to a doctor or pharmacist before using if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. 

 

Can Laxido be used when using another type of medication?

If you are using any form of medication, then it is recommended that you speak to a doctor or pharmacist before using Laxido. This is because some types of medication become less effective as a result of using these laxatives. You should not use any medication for an hour before or after using these Laxido sachets/

 

How often should I use a sachet?

The usual dosage is one sachet up to three times a day for constipation. For the more severe faecal impaction, the dosage is eight sachets a day, taken within a six-hour period.
