Exportal Pharmacodynamics
In the large intestine, lactitol is split by the intestinal flora into low-molecular organic acids, which leads to an increase in osmotic pressure in the large intestine, increasing the volume of stools, softening them, facilitating defecation and normalizing bowel function. The laxative effect usually occurs within 24 hours after administration of the drug (the delay is due to the passage of the drug through the gastrointestinal tract). At the beginning of treatment, the laxative effect of the drug may be delayed, the effect may come on the second or third day of its administration.
In patients with hepatic encephalopathy or hepatic coma (or precoma) the effect is achieved due to ammonia migration from blood into the large intestine (due to lower pH, increased osmotic pressure in the intestinal lumen), removal of delayed ammonium ions and other nitrogen-containing toxic substances from the large intestine. Lactitol suppresses proteolytic bacteria and increases the number of acidophilic bacteria.
Indications
Constipation, the need to regulate stools for medical purposes (colon cleansing in preparation for endoscopic and radiological studies, surgical interventions on the rectum, anal sphincter and the area adjacent to it), intestinal dysbacteriosis. Hepatic encephalopathy, hepatic precoma and coma, hyperammonemia.
Contraindications
Individual intolerance to lactitol, galactosemia, bowel obstruction, suspected organic damage of the gastro-intestinal tract, abdominal pain and rectal bleeding of unclear origin.
