Agpeg OS Liquido

Product with laxative action containing Macrogol 3350.

 

  • In chronic constipation
  • In case of bowel irregularity

 

Indications
Agpeg OS Liquido is a product for oral use indicated for the symptomatic treatment of constipation. Thanks to Macrogol 3350, Agpeg OS Liquido promotes peristalsis, helping to have adequate bowel evacuation, thus counteracting constipation and preventing the formation of fecal impactions. Macrogol is a water-soluble inert polymer with a high- molecular weight that has the ability to bind to the water used for intake retaining it in the stool. It determines a rehydration and softening of the fecal mass and facilitates its evacuation. It accelerates intestinal transit by promoting peristalsis. It is not absorbed or metabolized in the gastro-intestinal tract and does not lead to water and electrolytes imbalance, if taken with the indicated dose of liquid.

It is advisable to use the product in children after consulting a doctor. Administration in children should be carried out under the direct supervision of an adult.

In case of unwanted reactions stop the treatment and consult your doctor.
