What is Laxido?
Laxido Orange is a laxative and is used to treat constipation that has been present for a long time as well as faecal impaction. The main ingredient, macrogol, works by absorbing water into the stool and increasing the volume and water content of stools. This helps relieve constipation as the stools pass through the bowel more easily.
How to take Laxido Orange?

Both sugar-free and sugar-containing preparations of this medicine may be available. The dose will vary depending on why it is being used. Laxido sachets are not suitable for children under 12 years.
