Pharmacological properties

microlax® has a chemical and mechanical effect. sodium citrate displaces the bound water contained in feces. Due to the crystallizing sorbitol solution, the effect of sodium citrate on water displacement is enhanced. sodium lauryl sulfoacetate is a non-toxic moisturizing agent that does not cause irritation. It facilitates the penetration of the rectal solution into the feces. this process facilitates the liquefaction of feces and enables the patient with constipation to complete the act of defecation within a few minutes, usually 5-20 minutes. the process of displacing bound water by chemical and mechanical methods is called peptization. an increase in the amount of water due to peptization and liquefaction helps to soften feces and facilitates bowel movement.

Indications

Constipation (short-term use), as well as diseases requiring relief of bowel movements.

For bowel movements during diagnostic and therapeutic measures in the rectal area.

Application

The drug is used rectally.

One dose of the drug should be used 5–20 minutes before the desired effect.

Newborns and children under the age of 3 years should use the contents of 1 tube of microclysters with a tip (5 ml) and introduce the tip of microclysters half the length (see the mark on the tip of the tube).

Instructions for use. Break off the seal on the tip of the tube. Press lightly on the tube so that a drop of the drug lubricates the tip of the tip of the microclyster to improve the administration process.
