MACROGOL compound 3350 electrolytes sachets

powder Macrogol TAD ®
With Citrus Flavor

Macrogol TAD contains Macrogol 3350 and electrolytes as active ingredients. Due to the high water-binding capacity of Macrogol 3350 - comparable to a liquid sponge - a lot of liquid can be transported into the intestine without being absorbed by the body. This will soften solid stool and increase stool volume. This leads to the initiation of the natural bowel movement and ultimately to the elimination of stools. Macrogol 3350 is also eliminated.

The addition of electrolytes (potassium and sodium salts) results in a drinking solution that compensates for a possible loss of the body's own electrolytes or water or prevents the body from becoming exposed to fluids.

Other ingredients:
Sorbitol, Acesulfame Potassium, Flavor, Color.

There is insufficient experience with the use of Macrogol TAD in children. Therefore, it is not recommended for use in children under 12 years of age.

Against chronic constipation.
