Frequently Asked Questions

Prunelax® can be used for up to 7 consecutive days to treat occasional constipation.
Occasional constipation is very common during pregnancy and lactation due to hormonal changes. Prunelax is not absorbed into the blood stream, so it does not become part of the placenta or breast milk. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, before ingesting any type of laxatives, including Prunelax, consult a health professional.
Dependency is a process involving cerebral structures. Since Prunelax is not absorbed into the blood, it cannot make it to the brain and create dependency.
No. Tolerance means the patient should increase the dose of the medication with time so that it can continue to work. Research also shows that tolerance to stimulating laxatives is not common and there is no evidence of ricochet constipation after stopping the consumption of laxatives.
