Picolax Sachets belongs to a group of medicines known as the 'osmotic laxatives'. It works by causing water to be drawn into the lower bowel. This increases the water content and volume of the stools, making them softer and easier to pass.
It is generally used in instances where rapid bowel evacuation is required, such as prior to surgery or examination procedures.
Picolax Sachets - Route of administration: Oral To avoid dehydration during treatment with Picolax it is recommended to drink approximately 250ml per hour, of water or other clear fluid while the washout effect persists.
Put the contents of one sachet in a cup of water (approximately 150ml). Stir for 2-3 minutes and drink the solution. If it becomes hot, wait until it cools sufficiently to drink.
