Product Info

Normacol Plus contains two active ingredients, called Sterculia and Frangula, to help relieve constipation or treat diverticulosis. A bulk forming fibre ingredient (sterculia) and a laxative (frangula) are combined and this can be especially helpful in people that are not getting adequate constipation relief from a fibre based product on it's own.

Normacol Plus is also suitable for after surgery to help restart and maintain bowel regularity.

  • Contains a natural fibre and a gentle laxative
  • Suitable from 12 years old
  • Can be taken once or twice a day
  • Around 140 doses in one 500g pack
  • Gluten free

Special warnings and precautions for use

Adequate fluid intake should be maintained.Caution should be exercised in the use of Normacol Plus in cases of ulcerative colitis.

Patients should be advised to

  • Take with plenty of water to reduce the risk of oesophageal obstruction
  • Not to be taken immediately before going to bed or in a recumbent position (especially if they are elderly)
  • Suspend treatment if bowel movements do not occur within four days.

Prolonged and excessive use of stimulant laxatives can cause dependence and loss of normal bowel function. Possible fluid and electrolyte depletion in association with diarrhoea.

Laxatives containing frangula bark should not be taken by patients suffering from faecal impaction and undiagnosed, acute or persistent gastrointestinal complaints,e.g. abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting unless advised by a doctor because these symptoms can be signs of potential or existing intestinal blockage (ileus).
