Parachoc 400ml Liquid Paraffin
Little Parachocis a gentle stool softener that contains liquid paraffin for the medical treatment of constipation.
It works by gently lubricating the bowel wall and softening the faecal mass. This makes the stool easier to pass and helps children achieve an ideal bowel movement.
Little Parachoc has a pleasant chocolate vanilla flavour and can be mixed with cold milk, cold flavoured drinks and yogurt.
When to take
For relief of constipation.
It contains no bowel stimulant so its suitable for long term use.
Each 5 mL contains:
- Liquid Paraffin 2.5 mL
Does not contain the following:
- Casein (milk protein)
- Nuts and nut by products
- Peanuts and peanut by products
Little Parachoc has a pleasant Chocolate Vanilla flavour and can be mixed with cold milk, cold flavoured drinks or yoghurt.
After taking Little Parachoc children must not lie down for at least two hours. This reduces the risk of the paraffin being regurgitated and inhaled into the lungs. Inadvertent inhalation of liquid paraffin can cause serious respiratory problems.
Always speak with your healthcare professional when treating constipation.
Every patient has their own individual dose requirement for Little Parachoc.
Adequate dosage is that dose which produces one soft motion without leakage of liquid paraffin. Increase or decrease the daily dose in 5 mL graduations until desired effect is achieved.
1 year 6 years: 10 15 mL Once daily
7 years 12 years: 20 mL Once daily
Adults: 40 mL Once daily
Because Little Parachoc is not a bowel stimulant, patients must be aware that it can take up to 4 days for a change in dose to work. Therefore the new daily dose must be maintained for at least that time to assess how effective the change is. Further alteration may be necessary, and similarly a 4 day period should be allowed to assess that change before any further alterations in dose are made.
If symptoms persist seek medical advice.
Incorrect use could be harmful. Follow the directions for use. If symptoms persist, talk to your healthcare professional.
