Special warnings and precautions for use (ADVICE REQUIRED IF ANY OF THESE APPLY)

The fluid content of Laxido Orange when re-constituted with water does not replace regular fluid intake and adequate fluid intake must be maintained.

The faecal impaction diagnosis should be confirmed by appropriate physical or radiological examination of the rectum and abdomen.

Mild adverse drug reactions are possible as indicated in section 4.8. If patients develop any symptoms indicating shifts of fluids/electrolytes (e.g. oedema, shortness of breath, increasing fatigue, dehydration, cardiac failure) Laxido Orange should be stopped immediately and electrolytes measured and any abnormality should be treated appropriately.

The absorption of other medicinal products could transiently be reduced due to an increase in gastro-intestinal transit rate induced by Laxido Orange (see section 4.5).

This medicinal product contains 187mg of sodium per sachet, equivalent to approximately 9% of the WHO recommended maximum daily intake of 2g sodium for an adult.

When used to treat chronic constipation the maximum daily dose of this product is equivalent to approximately 28% of the WHO recommended maximum daily intake for sodium.

Laxido Orange is considered high in sodium. This should be particularly taken into account for those on a low salt diet.
