About Sofolyte Granules 90 gm

Sofolyte Granules 90 gm belongs to the class of medicines called laxatives used to treat constipation. Constipation refers to infrequent bowel movements in which the stools are often dry, painful, and hard to pass. Constipation occurs when the normal muscle contractions in the large intestine slow down, which causes the incomplete elimination of the bowel from the body. Symptoms include bloating, abdominal pain, and feeling as if the bowel movement is incomplete.

Sofolyte Granules 90 gm contains Ispaghula and Lactitol. Ispaghula is a bulk-forming laxative that works by increasing the amount of water in the stool, making the stool softer and easier to pass. Lactitol is a disaccharide sugar. It works by breaking down into low-molecular-weight organic acids in the colon, which increases the osmotic pressure. This causes an increase in water content in stools and stool volume, thereby making the stool softer and easier to pass. Thus, Sofolyte Granules 90 gm provides relief from constipation.

Take Sofolyte Granules 90 gm as prescribed by your doctor. You are advised to take Sofolyte Granules 90 gm for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you, depending on your medical condition.
