Product Overview

Duphalac Syrup is a medication containing the active ingredient Lactulose. It is a synthetic sugar solution that acts as a laxative by drawing water into the colon and softening the stool, making it easier to pass. Duphalac is commonly prescribed to relieve constipation and promote regular bowel movements. It is available in liquid form and is suitable for use in both adults and children.

Uses

Duphalac Syrup is primarily used to treat constipation by promoting bowel movements. It is also prescribed to prevent or treat hepatic encephalopathy, a condition characterized by confusion, tremors, and loss of consciousness due to liver disease. Additionally, Duphalac may be used to empty the bowel before certain medical procedures or surgeries.

How to Use

Duphalac Syrup should be taken orally, preferably with a meal to reduce the risk of stomach upset. The dosage prescribed will depend on the individual’s age, medical condition, and response to treatment. It is important to measure the dose accurately using a special measuring spoon or cup provided with the medication. Shake the bottle well before each use. Ensure an adequate intake of fluids while taking Duphalac to prevent dehydration.

How it Works

Duphalac Syrup works by increasing the water content and volume of stool, which softens it and stimulates bowel movements. Lactulose, the active ingredient in Duphalac, is not absorbed by the body and passes unchanged into the colon. Once in the colon, it is broken down by bacteria into compounds that draw water into the intestine, resulting in softer stools and more frequent bowel movements.

Dosage and Administration

The dosage of Duphalac Syrup varies depending on the individual’s age and medical condition. For constipation in adults, the usual starting dose is 15-30 ml (1-2 tablespoons) once daily, which may be adjusted based on response. For children, the dose is usually based on weight and is determined by the healthcare provider. It is important to follow the dosage instructions provided by your doctor and not exceed the recommended dose.
