1. WHAT FORLAX IS AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR

Forlax contains the active substance Macrogol 4000 and belongs to a group of medicines called osmotic laxatives. It works by adding water to the stools, which helps to overcome problems caused by very slow bowel movements. Forlax is not absorbed into the bloodstream or broken down in the body.
Forlax is used for the treatment of constipation in adults and children aged 8 years and above.
This medicine is a powder that you dissolve in a glass of water (at least 50ml) and drink. It usually takes 24 to 48 hours to work.
The treatment of constipation with any medicine should only be in addition to a healthy lifestyle and diet.

2. WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE YOU TAKE FORLAX Do not take Forlax:

_ if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to macrogol (polyethylene glycol) or any of the other ingredients of this medicine (listed in section 6).
_ if you have an existing disease, such as, severe intestinal disease:
o inflammatory bowel disease (such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, abnormal dilation of the bowel)
o perforation of the bowel or risk of perforation of the bowel o ileus or suspicion of intestinal obstruction o painful abdominal syndromes of uncertain cause
Do not take this medicine if any of the above applies to you. If you are not sure, talk to your pharmacist or doctor before taking the medicine.

Warnings and Precautions

Cases of allergic reactions involving rash and swelling of the face or throat (angioedema) have been reported in adults after taking products containing macrogol (polyethylene glycol). Isolated severe allergic reactions have been reported causing faintness, collapse or breathing difficulties and feeling generally unwell.
If you experience any of these symptoms you should stop taking Forlax and seek medical help immediately.
As this medicine can sometimes cause diarrhoea, check with a doctor or pharmacist before taking this medicine if you:
•   have impaired liver or kidney function,
•   are taking diuretics (water tablets) or are elderly as you may be at risk of low sodium (salt) or potassium levels in the blood.

Other medicines and Forlax

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription.

Pregnancy and breast feeding

Forlax can be used during pregnancy and breast- feeding.
If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking this medicine.

Driving and using machines

Important information about some of the ingredients of Forlax

If you have been told by your doctor that you have an intolerance to some sugars (sorbitol), contact your doctor before taking this medicine. This medicine contains a small amount of a sugar called sorbitol, which is converted to fructose.
Due to the presence of sulphur dioxide, it may rarely cause severe hypersensitivity reactions and breathing difficulties.
Forlax can, however, be used if you are diabetic or on a galactose- free diet.

3. HOW TO TAKE FORLAX

Always take Forlax exactly as described in this leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.

Adults and children over 8 years

The recommended dose is one to two sachets per day, preferably taken as a single dose in the morning.
The daily dose can be adjusted according to the effect obtained and may range from one sachet every other day (especially in children) to up to a maximum of two sachets per day.
Dissolve the contents of the sachets in a glass of water (at least 50 ml) immediately before use and drink the liquid.

Please note:

•   Forlax usually takes 24 to 48 hours to work.
•   In children, the duration of treatment with Forlax should not exceed 3 months.
•   Improvement in the frequency of your bowel movements after taking Forlax can be maintained by keeping to a healthy lifestyle and diet.
•   Talk to your pharmacist or doctor if the symptoms worsen or do not improve.

If you take more Forlax than you should

Taking too much Forlax may cause diarrhoea, stomach pains or vomiting. The diarrhoea usually disappears when treatment is stopped or the dose reduced.
If you suffer from severe diarrhoea or vomiting you should contact a doctor as soon as possible as you may require treatment to prevent loss of salts (electrolytes) from fluid loss.

If you forget to take Forlax

Take the next dose as soon as you remember but do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose.
