Expert advice for LAXOPEG

  • Together with Polyethelene Glycol, fiber rich diet containing whole grain bread and cereals, bran, fruits and green leafy vegetables, is essential to maintain healthy bowel function.
  • Take Polyethelene Glycol after 2 hours from other medicines, as it may interfere with the absorption of other medicines.
  • A Polyethelene Glycol should preferably be taken at bedtime because it requires 6 to 8 hours to show impact.
  • Notify your doctor if you are on a low-sugar diet because the Polyethelene Glycol contains sugars.
  • Avoid taking a Polyethelene Glycol for more than 1 week, unless prescribed by the doctor, as it leads to dependency on the laxative action to produce a bowel movement.
