How MICROLAX® acts

MICROLAX® works quickly to relieve constipation in 5 – 15 minutes. Because the mini-tube is thin, it can be inserted gently into the rectum making it hygienic and discreet to use. The active ingredients, sodium citrate and sodium lauryl sulfoacetate help to release the bound water, which softens the stool.

The mini-enema has a gel-like consistency which acts locally so has no impact on bowel activity, Very few side effects have been reported with the use of Microlax® and the product has a good safety profile.
