About Ispagula Husk
This belongs to the group of medicines known as Bulk-forming laxatives.
Ispagula Husk is used to treat constipation.

ConstipationConstipation can be caused by a poor diet, not drinking enough water or not going to the toilet as soon as you feel the need to. Pregnancy, a lack of exercise or movement (such as being ill in bed) and some medicines, including some pain killers, can also cause constipation.

 

Ispagula Husk increases the bulk of the stools, which encourages the bowels to move the stools through the digestive system.

 

This bulking action means that it can also be used to help treat diarrhoea and to help regulate the passage of food through the gut in people with certain chronic (long term) bowel disorders such as an ileostomy, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Ulcerative Colitis.
Ispagula Husk is available in dissolvable granule and powder form.

 

It is also sometimes known as: Fybogel; Isogel; Ispagel; Regulan. You may notice the use of any of these names on the packaging of your medicine.

Getting the most from your treatment

  • It is important to drink plenty of water while you are being treated with Ispaghula. You should aim to drink at least eight large glasses of water a day.
  • To prevent constipation it is important to eat a well balanced diet containing fibre (whole grain breads and cereals, bran, fruit and green leafy vegetables) and to take daily exercise.
  • Drinks containing caffeine (tea, coffee, colas) or alcohol can make constipation worse as they have a diuretic effect, which means they cause a loss of fluid from the body, causing dehydration.
  • Before taking any 'over-the-counter' medicines, check with your pharmacist which medicines are safe for you to take alongside Ispaghula.

How to store Ispagula Husk

  • Keep all medicines out of the reach of children.
  • Store in a cool, dry place away from direct heat and light.
  • Never keep out of date or unwanted medicines. Either discard them safely and out of the reach of children or take them to your local pharmacist who will dispose of them for you.
