The active ingredient in OsmoLax is called macrogol 3350. Macrogol is considered to be the gold standard for the treatment of constipation, especially in children.1 In fact, macrogol containing laxatives are the most prescribed type of laxative by Australian doctors. OsmoLax restores the body’s natural rhythm. It is virtually unabsorbed so it remains in the bowel and directs water into the stool. This lubricates and softens, as well as bulks the stool which stimulates the urge to go to the toilet. The result is a natural and comfortable bowel movement.

This can be increased to a maximum of 2 doses of 17g daily, dependent on the severity of your constipation. For chronic constipation, the dose may be reduced to one 8.5g scoop mixed with 1 cup (approximately 120mL) of liquid daily, according to individual response.
