Action Lactulosum Hasco 2.5g / 5ml syrup:
Lactulosum Hasco 2.5 g / 5ml is syrup for constipation and treatment and prevention of hepatic encephalopathy. The liquid lactulose contained in the drug is a synthetic disaccharide, which is slightly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. In the colon, lactulose is broken down into lactic, formic and acetic acid, as well as carbon dioxide. The acids contribute to the reduction of pH in the colon (up to 5, 5, 5,5) and act locally osmotically, retaining water in the large intestine. The effect of this action is relaxation and increase of fecal mass, as well as stimulation of intestinal peristalsis. In the case of hepatic encephalopathy, lactulose reduces the toxicity of ammonia.
