Laxido Orange is a laxative for the treatment of constipation and faecal impaction in adults,
children (aged 12 years and above) and the elderly.
The usual dose for constipation is one sachet taken one to three times daily.
The usual dose for faecal impaction is eight sachets daily. All eight sachets must be taken within
a six hour period. If you have a heart condition, do not take more than two sachets (in 250ml of
water) in any one hour.
Laxido Orange should be made up by dissolving the contents of one sachet in a glass of water
(125ml or a quarter pint). Stir well until all the powder has dissolved. If you are being treated
for faecal impaction, you can dissolve the contents of all eight sachets together in a large container (in one litre of water).
The course of treatment for constipation does not normally last longer than 2 weeks. Your
treatment may last for longer than two weeks if you have ongoing constipation, or a disease that
causes constipation (such as Parkinson’s disease or multiple sclerosis), or if you are taking other
regular medicines that can cause constipation. In these cases, your doctor may reduce your dose
to one sachet taken one or two times daily.
The course of treatment for faecal impaction does not normally last longer than 3 days.
