Picopil drops Characteristics

Form: Oral drops Size: 7.5 mg/ml; bottle 15 ml
Oral use
For adults and children over 4 years of age

Pikopil is used for the short-term relief of complaints associated with chronic or recurrent constipation in adults and children over 4 years of age.

Sodium picosulphate, the active ingredient in the medicinal product Pikopil, is a topical laxative which, after being broken down by the colonic bacterial flora, exerts a dual action by stimulating the mucosa of both the colon and rectum. The stimulation of the colonic mucosa leads to an acceleration of colonic peristalsis and increases the water and electrolyte content of the colonic lumen.

Sodium picopil does not affect the digestion and absorption of calories and essential nutrients in the small intestine.
Picopil comes as a neutral-tasting liquid and can be taken with or without
additional liquid.

Dosage in adults: the recommended dose is 8 to 12 drops at a time.

More or less drops of the drug may be taken to determine what the optimal dose is.

The recommended daily dose for children is:
– Children over 6 years of age: 8 to 12 drops at a time;
– Children aged 4 to 6 years: 6 drops at a time.

The effect of the drug usually occurs after approximately 6 to 12 hours.
