Drug Ingredient Information



Information for patients
Drug Information • SODIUM PICOSULFATE belongs to a group of medicines called laxatives. • SODIUM PICOSULFATE is used for relief of constipation. • SODIUM PICOSULFATE gently stimulates the muscles of the bowel (large intestine). This brings predictable, overnight relief from constipation, helping to return the body to its natural rhythm. What is constipation? Normal and regular bowel movement is important for most people. However, what is “normal and regular” varies from person to person. Some may have a bowel movement every day, others less often. Whatever it is like for you, it is best that your bowel movement has a regular pattern. • Constipation is an occasional problem for some people. For others, it may happen more often • It happens when the normal muscle actions in the bowel (large intestine) slow down. This can mean that material is not easily eliminated from the body The cause of constipation is often not known. It can be associated with: • Sudden change of diet • A diet with not enough fibre • Loss of ‘tone’ of the bowel muscles in older people • Pregnancy • Medicines such as morphine or codeine • Having to stay in bed for a long time • Lack of exercise Whatever the cause, constipation can be uncomfortable. It may make you feel bloated and heavy or generally “off colour”. Sometimes it causes headaches. These healthy tips are recommended to try to prevent constipation happening: • Eat a balanced diet including fresh fruit and vegetables • Drink enough water so that you do not become dehydrated • Keep up your exercise and stay fit • Make time to empty your bowels when your body tells you
