Description

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? 

You should only take this medicine on advice from a doctor. This medicine is available as a powder in a sachet that is dissolved in water before taking by mouth. 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.

If you are taking this medicine to treat constipation, do not take it for more than two weeks. If you are treating faecal impaction, do not take it for more than three days. Consult your doctor if your symptoms do not improve after two weeks or if they get worse during treatment with this medicine.

Great product, I take at least one daily with plenty of water. Have suffered from haemorrhoids since 2019, and recently had surgery. Taking at least one a day enables me to manage this condition, and hopefully prevent recurrence after surgery. Recommended by surgeon. Regular blood tests show no electrolyte imbalance from taking daily for five years. Main snag is it causes flatulence!

This is the most valued item in my home otherwise for me it's 7 hours waiting at a hospital. I was first given this after emergency hospital visit they did forget to mention I now have to stay on this for life.After another hospital visit I do have to stay on it for life but it's worth it and it works also like to add this is by far cheapest around.

For me Laxido is brilliant. I have used it for years with no problems at all. Prescribed by family doctor. Have tried many other laxatives suggested by other doctors and friends when out of Uk where Laxido is unavailable, but no where near as good. Laxido certainly is the best for my body! Weldricks’ online service is excellent. Both highly recommended!
