Description

Slabilen Pharmacodynamics
Active substance – sodium picosulfate is a laxative of triarylmethane group. As a local laxative sodium picosulfate after bacterial cleavage in the large intestine has a stimulating effect on the mucosa of the large intestine, increasing peristalsis, contributes to accumulation of water and electrolytes in the large intestine. This leads to stimulation of the act of defecation, reduced evacuation time and softening of stools. The action occurs 10-12 hours after intake.
Sodium picosulfate as a laxative acting at the level of the large intestine stimulates the natural process of evacuation of contents from the lower parts of the gastrointestinal tract. Therefore, sodium picosulfate has no effect on digestion or absorption of caloric foods or essential nutrients in the small intestine.
