Properties :
Laxel is a mixture of salts prepared in a nicely flavored , easily soluble , effervescent granular form . The main ingredients include magnesium sulphate , the salt with a specific cholagogue action in the drainage of the biliary passages . This action is achieved by direct relaxation of the sphincter of the common bile duct , simultaneously with contraction of the gall bladder this action allows a direct flow of the bile into the duodenum , thus preventing stasis and so safe guards against infection and stone formation .
Laxel also contains sodium sulphate and sodium phosphate , both are poorly absorbed salts which retain water in the intestinal tract and produce a mild laxative effect . With the ensured flow of bile , this regulates the activity of the bowels and ensures better digestion and more complete evacuation .

Indications & usage :
- Chronic cholecystitis .
- Constipation , ( occasional or habitual ).

disease , Acute pancreatitis , hypoparathyroidism and severe adrenal
insufficiency .

Side effects :
- Nausea , vomiting , or diarrhea may occur .
- Hypermagnesaemia is uncommon after oral administration except in
renal impairment .

Drug interaction :
- Magnesium salts may decrease the absorption and the therapeutic effect
of aminoquinolines ( eg. chloroquine ) , nitrofurantoin , tetracyclines
and biphosphonate .
- Antacids containing Aluminum or Calcium , and Iron containing
medications may bind to phosphate and prevent its absorption .
- Acidification of urine due to phosphates may increase elimination
and decrease the therapeutic effect of anorexiants and sympathomimetic
drugs , and may increase bioavilability of chlorpropamide and enhance
the hypoglycemic action .

Warnings & precautions :
- Give with caution to patients with hyperphosphatemia and hypertension .

imbalance .
