Picolex 5 MG/5ML Description

Picolex Oral Solution is used to provide relief from constipation. It contains a laxative known as sodium picosulfate as its active ingredient. Constipation occurs when the normal muscle action in th

e bowel (large intestine) slows down, and the stools are not easily removed from the body. A laxative like Picolex Oral Solution increases bowel movements, thereby helping to push out the stools. Eating a balanced diet, drinking enough water, exercising regularly, and making time to empty your bowels when your body tells you are some of the tips to be followed to try to prevent constipation. This syrup is not to be used in children below 12 years of age. Always take this medicine exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not take too much of this medicine or for too long. If you are not sure, talk to your doctor before taking this medicine.
