Gastrointestinal adsorbent Enterosgel for use In acute and chronic diarrhoea.
Enterosgel is an oral suspension indicated for the symptomatic treatment of acute diarrhoea and chronic diarrhoea associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
Enterosgel is an oral intestinal adsorbent (enterosorbent). It is based on organic mineral with adsorption capacity towards some toxic and harmful substances in the gut (e.g. endotoxins, enterotoxins), physically binding them to its surface, reducing stool frequency and duration of diarrhoea.
Enterosgel is expelled from the body with the stool, this way eliminating the adsorbed toxins and harmful substances, which can be beneficial for treatment of indicated conditions of acute and chronic diarrhoea. Composition: polymethylsiloxane polyhydrate (methylsilicic acid hydrogel) – 70 %, purified water – 30 %. Enterosgel is free from preservatives, colouring, gluten, fat, sugar, lactose, flavours, colouring, plant or animal-derived ingredients.
Take Enterosgel treatment 2 hours before or after meal and taking oral medications. Duration of treatment with Enterosgel is 3–5 days for acute diarrhoea and up to 21 days for chronic diarrhoea. Dilute the dose in water of room temperature prior to its administration.
1–6 years old: 5 g (approximately 1 teaspoon or 1/3 of a sachet) diluted in 50–100 ml of water 3 times a day.
For children 1–3 years old it is advisable to consult a doctor prior to use of Enterosgel. For children Enterosgel can be suspended in the bottle feeder.
For children 7–14 years old: 10 g (approximately 2 teaspoons or 2/3 of a sachet) diluted in 50–100 ml of water 3 times a day
For children 15+ and adults: 15 g to 22.5 g (approximately 1 table spoon or 1–1,5 sachet) diluted in 200 ml of water 3 times a day. In the beginning of the treatment (on Day 1) you can double the first dose and then continue with a single dose after each bowel movement from 3 to 6 times a day.
Stop the treatment with Enterosgel if you do not have bowel movement for 1–2 days, increase intake of water and continue the treatment after the next bowel movement.
During treatment of chronic diarrhoea you may adjust your dosage to suit your stool consistency and bowel movements. You can increase treatment to a double dose up to 3 times a day if your stool is loose, or reduce to a single dose once a day if your stool is normal.
