FAQs ABOUT OSOLAC
Can OSOLAC be given to infants?
OSOLAC is usually not recommended for use in infants and smaller children as it can disturb the normal reflexes for passing stools. Your child’s doctor will decide the correct dose or select a suitable alternative treatment for your child. In special situations, your doctor may prescribe it for your baby, and they will supervise the treatment closely.
Can OSOLAC cause diarrhoea?
OSOLAC may cause diarrhoea when you take a higher than the recommended dose of it. In such cases, drink a lot of fluids, such as water to keep yourself hydrated. Do not take any medicine on your own to treat diarrhoea without consulting your doctor. If diarrhoea does not improve, consult your doctor immediately.
Can OSOLAC be used during pregnancy?
OSOLAC should be used with caution in pregnant women only if clearly advised by your doctor. Consult your doctor before taking OSOLAC if you are pregnant or planning to get pregnant.
What if I forget to take a dose of OSOLAC?
If you forget to take a dose of OSOLAC, take it as soon as you remember. However, omit the missed dose if it is almost time for your next dose. Do not take OSOLAC twice to make up for the forgotten dose.
Can I stop taking OSOLAC on my own?
Continue taking OSOLAC until your doctor tells you to stop, unless you experience any unwanted effects, worsening of your condition or any new symptoms. In such a case, contact your doctor right away. If you stopped taking it suddenly, the expected benefit of the treatment may not be achieved.
