Actilax Mixture is a lactulose solution for the effective treatment of chronic constipation.
Each 5.5 mL contains 3.3 g of Lactulose.
Directions For Use
Adults - The usual initial dose is 15 to 30 mL daily. The dose may be increased to 45 mL daily if necessary.
Since Actilax solution relieves constipation by producing a physiological change in the colon, it may take from24 to 48 hours before normal defaecation occurs. After three days, the dose may be reduced to 10 to 25 mL daily for maintenance.
More serious constipation and/or constipation such as that caused by chemotherapy agents may require higher dosages.
Children - It is recommended that if Actilax is given to infants and children, this should be done under medical supervision. The usual initial daily doses (for the first three days) are as follows:
7 to 14 years: 15 mL
1 to 6 years: 10 mL
Infants under 1 year: 5 mL
Maintenance daily doses are as follows:
7 to 14 years: 10 mL
1 to 6 years: 5 to 10 mL
Infants under 1 year: 3 to 5 mL
Note: Actilax solution may be more acceptable when mixed with fruit juice, water or milk.
*Actilax should not be administered to infants under 6 months of age, unless advised by your doctor. May be taken mixed with fruit juice, water or milk. In general, patients taking actilax for constipation should drink plenty of fluids and ensure that there is adequate fibre in their diet.
