Legapas® Tropfen

Legapas® Tropfen is a herbal laxative for short term use for constipation.

We use the term constipation if people have bowel movements less frequently than three times a week.

Possible causes:

  • organic disorders
  • too little liquid
  • taking certain drugs
  • lack of movement
  • too little supply of fiber

First clarify the cause and then support intestinal activity. Laxatives should only be taken for short periods. In the long term it can adversely affect the body's mineral and liquid balance. 

The herbal laxative Legapas® Tropfen has a two-fold effect on the digestive tract:

  • increased delivery of salts and water into the bowel
  • decreased return of these substances from the bowel to the body

This results in:

  • an increase in the volume of bowel content
  • increase in filling pressure
  • stimulation of evacuation
  • stimulation of peristalsis 

 

Dosage

The maximum daily dose of hydroxyanthracene derivatives is 30 mg.
This is equal to 50 drops of LEGAPAS®.

This results in the following dosage:
Adults and children aged 12 or over

Take 30-50 drops once a day in 1/2 a cup of hot water in the morning or in the evening.

The individually correct dosage is the lowest required to produce soft feces.

Takes effect after approx. 8-12 hours.
Do not take the laxative for longer than 1-2 weeks or at higher doses.

Aged 12 or above, lactose-free
