What is DUPHALAC?

Introduction:

Duphalac Lemon Flavour Oral Solution contains Lactulose which is used to treat constipation. It may help to increase the number of bowel movements per day and the number of days you have a bowel movement. It works by increasing stool water content followed by softening of stool. It is not absorbed into your body.

Lactulose is a synthetic (man-made) sugar. It breaks down in your large intestine and then draws water into the intestine. This softens your stool, which helps ease constipation. Lactulose is also used to treat high ammonia levels in the blood due to liver disease. High ammonia levels can lead to portal-systemic encephalopathy. This drug works by drawing ammonia from your blood into your large intestine. Your large intestine then removes the ammonia through your stool.

Duphalac Lemon Flavour Oral Solution comes as a sweet syrup that you can swallow. It can be taken with or without food. There are no restrictions on what you can eat or drink. You can mix Duphalac oral solution with fruit juice or water. It is recommended that you drink plenty of fluids (approximately 6-8 glasses throughout the day) while taking this oral solution. Duphalac Oral Solution takes 2 to 3 days to start working.
