LIQUID PARAFFIN+MILK OF MAGNESIA+SODIUM PICOSULFATE is the combination of three ingredients used as laxatives. Liquid paraffin works by lubricating the bowels and softening the stools. Milk of magnesia works by augmenting the osmotic gradient in the gut by taking the water into the intestine, thereby helping in bowel evacuation. Sodium Picosulphate works by water absorption in the colonic lumen and stimulating the colon’s propulsive activity, thereby promoting water accumulation. Together, LIQUID PARAFFIN+MILK OF MAGNESIA+SODIUM PICOSULFATE help in giving relief from constipation. Therefore, the solution is used in the treatment of piles, constipation, anal fissure, hernia, cardiovascular disorder, bowel clearance for endoscopy or radioscopy, and pre & post-operative conditions, and is administered in the elderly and bedridden patients.
