Moxalole | Macrogol 33510, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Bicarbonate, Potassium Chloride | Uses, Dose And Side Effects


Moxalole macrogol 33510, Powder for oral solution, Sodium chloride, Sodium bicarbonate, Potassium chloride

What Moxalole Is And What It Is Used For

Moxalole is used for the temporary treatment of constipation. This medicine can also be used after a doctor’s prescription for severe constipation (so-called fecaloma).

Macrogol 3350, which is part of Moxalole, binds water and thereby gives the stool an increased volume, and this normalizes bowel movements. The effect is a faster transport of the soft stools and an easier bowel movement. The content of salts in Moxalole English means that the body’s normal salt and fluid balance is maintained.

You must talk to a doctor if you do not feel better or feel worse after 2 weeks. If you are being treated for severe constipation (fecaloma), follow your doctor’s prescription.
