Directions: Mix the contents of 1 sachet with a 1/2 glass of water (about 125 mL). Stir well until all the powder has dissolved and drink it. If you like, you can add fruit juice or fruit syrup immediately before drinking. If you are taking MOLAXOLE for the treatment of faecal impaction, you can mix 8 sachets in 1 litre of water. The solution can then be stored in the fridge. Drink plenty of water and increase fibre in diet except in cases of medication-induced constipation.
