Agpeg

Macrogol 3350-based product with laxative action.

 

  • In chronic constipation
  • In cases of occasionally irregular bowel

 

Indications
Agpeg is a medical device with a laxative action which, through an osmotic action, regulates the intestine in a natural way. It is not absorbed or fermented in the intestine, it does not irritate the mucosa and is eliminated in the faeces in an unmodified form. Agpeg is particularly indicated in chronic constipation and in cases of occasionally irregular bowel. In fact, thanks to its affinity for water, Agpeg softens the stool, facilitating evacuation. Its effectiveness does not decrease over time.

When not to use it
Do not take Agpeg in case of known hypersensitivity to macrogol or other components, intestinal perforation, obstruction or stenosis, paralytic ileus, severe inflammatory diseases of the intestinal tract such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and toxic megacolon.

During pregnancy and lactation the product must be used on medical prescription.
Interactions with drugs
There are no known interactions with drugs but it is advisable that the intake of the product is spaced by at least 2 hours from that of drugs administered orally since the osmotic power of macrogol and the increase in speed
induced gastrointestinal transit can adversely affect their efficacy. However, consult your doctor before taking Agpeg in case of other therapies in progress.
