I am 4 months pregnant at the moment and in the early stages of my pregnancy, the first trimester, I could notice the change of my food habit. I don't like taking anything and feel as if my stomach is full. In connection to my early stages of pregnancy, I had developed digestive disorders, with some bloating and infrequent bowel movement or constipations. I was surprised to the change but my mother suggested me to visit a gynecologist for advice. My husband took me to one of the gynecologists and on speaking out my history; the doctor prescribed me with some medicines. One of the prescribed medicines was Livoluk fibre which I am discussing at the moment.

The medicine comes in a plastic bottle which is cylindrical in shape, with a yellow lid at the top to keep the content air tight. On opening the lid, inside comes a silvery seal which we have to tear open to find inside yellowish granules. I never smell medicines to say how it smells, but I am sure it will smell just like the medicines. The product I purchased was of lemon flavor as indicated at the plastic bottle itself.

Compositions:

Each 15g of granule contains 10 grams of Lactulose (BP) and 3.50 grams of Ispaghula Husk (IP) and color (Quinoline yellow, water soluble).

Indications:

The medicine is used to treat chronic idiopathic constipation as an adjuvant to diet.

Directions to use:

It depends on the severity of constipation. For me, I was prescribed a single dose of 2 tea spoon full of granules in a cup of water.

Taste:

Simply, I don't like it. It has a peculiar taste and can not be described in words. Every time I have the tendency to vomit (nausea) while taking the medicine. I could not get the lemon flavor of the granules while forcefully consuming the medicines to get rid of my constipation.

Effectiveness:

First day: There was little constipation. From the second day onwards, I had evacuated my bowel completely without any feeling of incomplete evacuation. I am happy using the medicine even though it has a horrible taste. I am happy that my bowel was set to normal after use of that medicine and I can feel hungry again.

Side effects:

No side effects.

Contradictions:

The medicine should not be administered to patients with intestinal obstruction, colonic atony, and those with known hypersensitivity to lactulose and / or ispaghula husk.

Bottom line:

If you have digestive disturbances relating to constipation, you can rely on this medicine. This medicine is very effective to reset your bowel in motion.
