PADMA LAX is a laxative which is used in occasional constipation. In addition to the laxative effect it stimulates the digestive functions and reduces flatulence.
What is PADMA Lax and when is it used?
Padma Lax is an herbal laxative according to the principles of Tibetan medicine (for components see “What does Padma Lax contain?”). Padma Lax acts as mild (1 tablet per day) to strong (2 tablets per day) laxative. It also stimulates the digestive functions and reduces flatulence. It is used for the treatment of temporary constipation (e.g. due to change of diet, travel or confinement to bed).
What else should be considered?
In the case of constipation you should, if possible, eat foods with high roughage content (vegetables, fruit, wholemeal bread), drink regularly and take adequate exercise (sport). In the case of chronic constipation a doctor should be consulted, who will possibly prescribe a causal therapy. Padma Lax is also suitable for diabetics: 1 tablet contains 0.09 g utilisable carbohydrates. The product does not
contain lactose and is gluten-free.
When must Padma Lax not be used?
Padma Lax must not be used in the case of intestinal obstruction, diseases of the gastrointestinal tract (e.g. Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, appendicitis) and in case of known hypersensitivity to one of the active substances or one of the excipients (see “What does Padma Lax contain?”). Padma Lax must not be given to children under the age of 12 years unless prescribed by the doctor.
When must Padma Lax be used only with caution?
Laxatives should generally not be taken for longer than 1 to 2 weeks without medical prescription, to avoid habituation. If Padma Lax is taken for longer or in a dosage higher than indicated, diarrhoea with dehydration and disorders of the mineral balance (incl. Potassium depletion) can occur and the intestinal mucosa can be damaged. Long-term treatment must be carried out under medical
supervision. Inform your doctor, your pharmacist or your druggist if you are suffering from other diseases, have any allergies, or are taking other medicines (even if bought over the counter!).
May Padma Lax be taken during pregnancy and breast feeding?
During pregnancy and breast feeding Padma Lax may be taken only if expressly prescribed by your doctor.
How do you use Padma Lax?
Unless otherwise prescribed by the doctor, adults take 1 or 2 tablets with ample liquid (1 large glass) before retiring or about 1 hour before breakfast. Children above the age of 12 years take 1 tablet as
described above. The medicine takes effect after about 8 hours. Adhere to the dosage indicated in the package leaflet or prescribed by your doctor. If you think that the effect of the medicine is too weak or too strong, talk to your doctor, your pharmacist or your druggist.
What are the possible side effects of Padma Lax?
The following side effects can appear after taking Padma Lax:
In rare cases slight diarrhoea or abdominal cramps can occur during the treatment. In this case the dose must be reduced or the treatment discontinued. It is also important to drink ample fluids. A red discolouration of the urine may appear during the treatment. This is, however, harmless and will disappear when you stop taking the medicine. If you notice any side effects which are not described here, you should inform your doctor, your pharmacist or your druggist.
What other precautions should you take?
Like other medicines, Padma Lax must be kept out of the reach of children. It must also be protected against light and kept in the original package, at room temperature (15-25°C). The medicine may only be used up to the date indicated with “EXP” on the package. Further information may be obtained from your doctor, your pharmacist or your druggist who have access to the detailed Product Information for Medical Professionals.
