Product Information

What Molaxole is used for

Molaxole helps you to have a comfortable bowel movement even if you have been constipated for a long time.

Molaxole also works in very bad constipation (called faecal impaction), as determined by your doctor.

The active ingredient Macrogol 3350 increases the volume of faeces by binding water leading to a normalisation of motility in the colon. The physiological consequences are in increased movement of the softened stools and easing of defaecation. The salts in the formulation help maintain the body’s natural salt and water balance.

Each sachet contains 13.8g of Molaxole powder. You add the powder to water to make a drink.
