Sodium Phosphate Rectal Solution
Sodium Phosphate Rectal Solution by Marco Viti is a medicine indicated for the treatment of constipation and to empty the intestine before and after surgery or certain clinical tests, such as radiological examinations or intestinal explorations with an endoscope.
This solution contains the active substances monobasic sodium phosphate monohydrate and dibasic sodium phosphate heptahydrate, which belong to the group of laxative medicines.
It is recommended to use this medicine at room temperature. If you prefer the medicine to be lukewarm you can immerse the closed bottle in hot water or put it under the tap. For best effect, please follow the following instructions for use: 1.Before using the product push the cannula cover down until the safety seal of the bottle breaks. 2. Remove the protective cap from the rectal cannula. 3.Hold the bottle, lubricate the cannula with a few drops of solution and after lying on your side, gently insert the cannula into the rectum, then squeeze the bottle thoroughly. A residue of solution is expected to remain in the bottle. 4. Pull out the cannula by holding the bottle down after dosing. 5. Remain lying down for a few minutes (preferably in the genupectoral position with elbows and knees resting on the ground) and go to the bathroom as soon as you feel the urge to evacuate, which usually occurs within 5 minutes. In any case, do not keep the solution for more than 10-15 minutes.
This medicine should not be used in children under 12 years of age. Bronopol can cause local skin reactions (eg contact dermatitis). If you use this medicine excessively, frequently or incorrectly, you may experience persistent diarrhea, resulting in a loss of water, minerals (especially potassium) and other essential nutrients. In severe cases, you may experience dehydration and low blood potassium levels (hypokalaemia), with possible heart, nerve and muscle problems, especially if you are taking medicines for heart problems (cardiac glycosides), diuretics or corticosteroids at the same time. Take fluids to prevent dehydration.
