Laxido Orange 30 is a powerful laxative with that treats constipation, especially the type that persists. It can also relieve faecal impaction, a build-up of hard faeces in the intestines. The active ingredient, Macrogol 3350, absorbs water into stool, increasing volume and water content. This helps them pass through the intestines more easily. Formulated with electrolytes to help maintain normal levels of sodium, potassium and water.

Each pack contains 30 orange-flavoured, single dose sachets that dissolve in water for a convenient, tasty drink. Suitable for children over 12 years, adults and the elderly. Available in regular and sugar-free varieties.

You should only take this medication with your doctor’s advice. Do not take Laxido Orange for longer than two weeks. If you are treating faecal impaction, do not take it for more than three days. If your symptoms do not improve after two weeks or if they worsen, consult your doctor.    

*Prescription medicines are supplied subject to a medical consultation at the discretion of a doctor.

For chronic constipation:

For adults, adolescents over 12 and the elderly: Dissolve 1 sachet in 125ml water, 1-3 times daily. For longer use, you may take 1 or 2 sachets daily.
Not recommended for children under 12.

Treatment for chronic constipation with Laxido Orange does not normally exceed 2 weeks, although the course can be repeated if necessary. Like all laxatives, prolonged use of Laxido Orange is not recommended.

For faecal impaction:

Adults, adolescents over 12 and the elderly: take 8 sachets daily and consume within 6 hours. Dissolve each sachet in 125ml of water, or all 8 sachets in 1 litre of water.
