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