  • Laevolac (lactulose) Syrup 500mL

    $10.99 $9.99

    Esther’s counselling tips:

    • Lactulose syrup is a mild laxative that acts by drawing water into the bowel so that it gently softens the stool 
    • Sometimes the medication can take a little while until it takes effect (up to 48 hours)
    • The dose of lactulose varies in people and just because you haven’t had an immediate effect from the product doesn’t mean it isn’t working – just try taking a larger volume of liquid and then taper the dose back once constipation is relieved
    • Lactulose needs water to work, therefore I always recommend people take it with a large glass of water
    • SAFE to use in pregnancy or breastfeeding

  • Normacol Plus Laxative 500g

    $33.99

    Esther’s counselling tips:

    • One of the ingredients in Normacol Plus swells when it comes into contact with fluids which causes an increase in the volume of the contents of the gut which causes a stimulation of the gut muscle
    • The other ingredient acts as a mild stimulant in the bowel to push the stool out
    • Place the granules on the tongue (bit by bit if necessary) and without chewing swallow the granules with a glass of water
    • When I have given this product in the past to my children I have added the granules to something like honey or jam and then given it to my kids
    • Unlike some of the other gentle laxatives out there this product should NOT be given just before bed, I recommend giving it first thing in the morning so that you don’t lie down after taking it
    • Not recommended for children under 6 years of age
    • Can be used in conjunction with Laevolac syrup for stubborn constipation
    • NOT to be taken in pregnancy or breastfeeding – we would recommend something like PHLOE or Laevolac syrup
