ITEM DESCRIPTION:

Duphalac oral solution offers relief from constipation for all the family.

Duphalac oral solution is a syrup that contains a laxative called lactulose. May contain small amounts of milk sugars (e.g. lactose), galactose, epilactose or fructose.

As a prebiotic substance, lactulose intensifies the growth of Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus, while Clostridium and Escherichia coli may be suppressed, leading to alleviation of constipation.

BENEFITS:

  • Relieves chronic constipation
  • Little absorption into body
  • Suitable for long-term use

Made in Netherlands

DOSAGE / DIRECTIONS:

Take Duphalac diluted or undiluted. Swallow the medicine quickly. Do not keep it in the mouth. Take the dosage preferably once a day at the same time. During treatment with laxatives, drink sufficient amounts of fluids (6 to 8 glasses).

Dosing in constipation or for stool softening:

  • Adults 10 - 45 ml [10 - 25 ml]
  • Children (7-14 years) 15 ml [10 -15 ml]
  • Children (1-6 years) 5 - 10 ml [5 - 10 ml]
  • Infants under 1 year Up to 5 ml [Up to 5 ml]

Based upon treatment response the doctor may adjust the starting dose to the maintenance dose after a few days.

How long does it take for Duphalac to work?

Several (2-3) days of treatment may be needed before treatment effect occurs.

Dosing in Portal systemic encephalopathy (PSE) (for adults only):

Starting dose: 30 - 50 ml THREE times daily.
This dose may be adjusted by the doctor to the maintenance dose to achieve 2 to 3 soft stools per day.
