Agpeg Plus Esse

Macrogol 3350 and Simethicone-based product for bowel cleansing.

 

Indications

Agpeg plus esse is a medical device to be taken to achieve an effective bowel cleansing. Removal of solid debris in the colon is essential in preparation for endoscopic, radiological and ultrasound examinations for an accurate diagnosis.
 
Agpeg plus esse contains macrogol 3350, an inert substance that is not absorbed, does not irritate the mucosa, does not ferment and is eliminated in an unmodified form. Thanks to its affinity for water, it retains a high amount of fluids in the intestinal compartment, hydrating the fecal mass and stimulating peristalsis. It also contains simethicone, with anti-foaming action, which facilitates the elimination of gas in the gastrointestinal tract.
 
Therapeutic category
Product for oral administration.

 

Pack size: 4 sachet of 60.98g of macrogol 3350 and simethicone.

Description

How to use
For a complete cleansing of the intestine, necessary for the preparation for some diagnostic tests (endoscopic or radiological examinations on the large intestine, abdominal ultrasounds) and in other clinical conditions, scrupulously follow the information provided by the center where the endoscopic examination is carried out, which they usually provide for a controlled dietary regime in the days preceding the exam.
 
The following doses apply, unless otherwise prescribed by a doctor. For the extemporaneous preparation of the oral solution:
1) pour the contents of 2 sachets into 1 L of water, shake well and drink the homogeneous solution within 1-2 hours, possibly taking 250 ml of solution every 10-15 minutes;
2) integrate with a further 500 ml (half a liter) of water until a total of 1.5 L is taken (1 L of Agpeg plus esse and 500 ml of water);
3) after about 1 hour, repeat the preparation with 2 other sachets and take the second liter of solution (and the additional 500 ml of water) in the same way.
After taking the first liter you will begin to feel bowel movements and urge to evacuate. The evacuations will be gradually more liquid until the emission of discharges of clear liquid without fecal residues. This indicates that the cleaning has been carried out correctly and you are ready to carry out the examination.
Contraindications
Do not take Agpeg plus esse in case of known hypersensitivity to macrogol or the other components, perforation, intestinal obstruction or stenosis, paralytic ileus, severe inflammatory diseases of the intestinal tract such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and toxic megacolon. The use of laxatives is contraindicated in case of acute abdominal pain or of unknown origin, nausea and vomiting, rectal bleeding of unknown origin and in case of severe dehydration.
Interactions
The product can reduce the residence time in the intestine and therefore the absorption of drugs administered simultaneously orally. It is therefore advisable, after taking a medicine, to let an interval of at least 2 hours elapse before taking Agpeg plus esse. Simethicone can interfere with the effect of some reagents used in diagnostics, such as guaiac gum. If you are taking anticoagulants, antiplatelet drugs or drugs for diabetes, consult your doctor or the endoscopy center for a possible change in dosage. In any case, consult your doctor before taking Agpeg plus esse in case of other therapies in progress.
