About Softpic Plus Sugar Free Suspension 170 ml

Softpic Plus Sugar Free Suspension 170 ml belongs to the group of medicines called laxatives used to treat constipation associated with piles, anal fissures, hernia, cardiovascular disorders, endoscopy, bowel clearance before radioscopy, pre/post-operative conditions, elderly and bed-ridden patients. Constipation refers to infrequent bowel movements in which the stools are often dry, painful, and hard to pass. 

Softpic Plus Sugar Free Suspension 170 ml contains liquid paraffin (lubricant), Milk Of Magnesia (hyperosmotic laxative), and Sodium picosulphate (stimulant laxative). Liquid paraffin works by lubricating the bowels and softening the stools. Milk of magnesia works by increasing the osmotic gradient in the gut by drawing the water into the intestine, thereby helping in bowel evacuation. Sodium picosulphate works by preventing water absorption in the colonic lumen and stimulating the colon's propulsive activity, thereby promoting water accumulation. Together, Softpic Plus Sugar Free Suspension 170 ml helps in providing relief from constipation.

    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Constipation: It refers to infrequent bowel movements. The stools are often dry, painful, and hard to pass. Constipation is a condition in which the person has fewer than three bowel movements in a week. However, bowel patterns may vary from person to person. Symptoms include bloating, abdominal pain, and feeling as if the bowel movement is incomplete. Constipation occurs when the normal muscle contractions in the large intestine slow down, which causes the incomplete elimination of the bowel from the body. Constipation could be associated with a sudden change of diet, a diet with less fiber, not drinking enough liquids, lack of exercise, loss of tone of the bowel muscles in older people, or staying in bed for a longer duration.
