Description

PEGinpol is a product with a laxative effect that regulates the intestine by means of an osmotic mechanism (draws water into the intestine).
PEGinpol is recommended in cases of chronic constipation and occasional irregular bowel activity.
In fact, thanks to its affinity for water, PEGinpol causes a softening of the stool, facilitating evacuation without giving rise to emergency situations. Moreover, since the product is not absorbed, it does not ferment in the intestine or irritate the mucous membrane, and hence does not cause cramps or abdominal pain. It is eliminated in the feces in unmodified form.
ITS EFFECTIVENESS IS NOT DIMINISHED OVER TIME.

Composition

Each package of PEGinpol sachets contains: 20 sachets of 5g (Macrogol 3350).
Excipients: silicon dioxide, flavoring, sodium saccharin.
PEGinpol sachets IS GLUTEN AND LACTOSE FREE

How to use

  • From 6 months to 2 years (up to 12 Kg): 1-2 sachets per day;
  • From 2 years to 11 years (from 12 kg to 20 kg): 2-4 sachets per day;
  • Over 11 years (or over 20 kg): 2-6 sachets per day.

Dissolve one sachet (5 g) in half a glass of water.
The daily dose maybe divided into multiple administrations.
The ideal daily dose for each age group should be determined according the child’s body weight, the severity of constipation and the individual’s response to treatment.
For more accurate dosage, we recommend consulting your doctor. This product should be given to children only on medical advice. Normally, maximum dosage should not exceed 6 sachets per day.

WARNINGS
Do not exceed the recommended dose, as higher doses can cause unexpected side effect. Do use the product for more than 30 consecutive days; if symptoms persist seek medical advice.
Do not use in the event of intolerance to the product and hypersensitivity to components and to Polyethylene glycol (PEG).
Do not administer to children under 6 months. While taking PEGinpol is advisable to follow an appropriate diet and assume an oral rehydration solution (ORS) in order to prevent dehydration; it is advisable to consult your doctor irrespective of the result of the treatment.
Do not take if the sachet is damaged.
The sachets contain a single dose, and should be taken immediately once mixed. If a dose is missed, do not take a double dose, but wait for the next dose.

Storage instructions:
Store in the original packaging in a cool, dry place at a temperature not exceeding 25°C. Do not use PEGinpol after the expiry date indicated on the packet. The expiry date refers to the product correctly stored and with packaging intact.

Information

Chronic idiopathic constipation is a common gastrointestinal disorder in infants and children during the first months and years of life. Must be diagnosed by a doctor.
There are two possible approaches for the treatment of chronic idiopathic constipation in children:
Non pharmacological: Normal introduction of fiber and fluids into the diet, regular physical activity
and possible use of probiotics and prebiotics.
Pharmacological: Divided into two key stages, i.e. fecal disimpaction
(eliminating feces in the gut), only when necessary, and subsequent maintenance
therapy.
PEG3350 (PEGinpol) represents a viable solution in the case of pharmacological treatment, since it is not absorbed in into the intestine, and is not metabolized by intestinal bacteria, hence it does not cause cramps or abdominal pain.
it works by drawing water into the lumen of the colon, leading to rehydration and softening of the stool, and a mechanical stimulation of intestinal peristalsis.
