Quick Tips

  • Together with Picozan Tablet, taking a 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 Picozan Tablet for more than 1 week, unless prescribed by the doctor, as it leads to dependency on the laxative action to produce a bowel movement.

  • Picozan Tablet should be preferably taken at bedtime because it requires 6 to 8 hours to show impact.
