How Colax PM Syrup works
Colax PM Syrup is a combination of three laxatives: Sodium picosulfate, liquid paraffin and milk of magnesia which relieve constipation. Sodium picosulfate is a stimulant laxative which increases peristalsis (the wave-like movement of the intestines) to push the stools forward. Liquid paraffin is a lubricant laxative which helps retain water and fat in the stools, while milk of magnesia is an osmotic laxative which works by drawing water into the intestine through osmosis, making the stools soft. Together, they make stools easier to pass.
