Pharmacological effect Guttalax

Sodium picosulfate is an active substance that belongs to the group of laxatives triarylmethane. As a local laxative, sodium picosulfate stimulates the lining of the large intestine after bacterial cleavage in it. This leads to increased peristalsis and retention of water and electrolytes in the large intestine. The result is stimulation of bowel movements, shorter evacuation times, and easier stools.

Sodium picosulfate, as a laxative, affects only the large intestine, stimulating the natural removal of contents from the lower parts of the gastrointestinal tract. Therefore, sodium picosulfate does not affect the digestion or absorption of caloric foods and important nutrients in the small intestine.

A randomized double-blind study in parallel groups of 367 patients with chronic constipation examined the effects of guttalax®. The results of the study showed a significant increase in intestinal peristalsis during the week with the use of the drug compared to placebo during the whole 4-week treatment (p<0.0001). Serum potassium levels remained unchanged at the end of the study (4.4mm) and in accordance with physiologic norms (3.6-5.3 mm).
