MUPOSAN (Sorbitol 5g) is a laxative used for symptomatic treatment of constipation, gastrointestinal disturbances, dyspepsia.
Sorbitol is less commonly known as glucitol which is a sugar alcohol with a sweet taste which the human body metabolizes slowly. It can be obtained by reduction of glucose, which changes the aldehyde group to a hydroxyl group. It acts on promoting the hydration of the intestinal contents by stimulating the secretion of cholecystokinin-pancreazymine whose presence causes the release of digestive enzymes and bile from the pancreas and gallbladder, respectively, (and also acts as a hunger suppressant) and accelerates intestinal motility and fluidifies the stools by its osmotic-laxative effect
Indication/ Treatment: As a laxative in symptomatic treatment of constipation, gastrointestinal disturbances, dyspepsia (which can be taken orally or enema).
Contra-Indication: Patients with enteritis, obstructed or semi-obstructed syndrome, undiagnosed abdominal painful syndrome, crohn disease, hereditary fructose intolerance, ulcerative coloproctitis. In patients with colopathy, avoid administration of sorbitol while hungry and reduce the dosage.
Warning: Desist from self-medication and adhere to doctor’s prescription
