Softner Suspension contains Liquid Paraffin and Milk of Magnesia (Magnesium Hydroxide) as main active ingredients.
Role of active ingredients: Liquid paraffin acts as lubricant and keeps the stool soft, useful in treatment of constipation, anal fissure, haemorrhoids and in painful conditions of anus. Milk of Magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) is a medication used to treat constipation. It's a type of laxative known as an oral osmotic; it works by drawing water into the colon from the body tissues surrounding it. This allows the stool to pass more easily. Milk of Magnesia can also be used as an antacid. It can help relieve heartburn, sour stomach, and acid indigestion.
Softner Suspension is used for the treatment of constipation. It forms an emollient gel that facilitates the passage of intestinal contents and stimulates bowel movement.
