Frequently Asked Questions

AT WHAT TIME SHOULD PRUNELAX BE TAKEN?
Prunelax works in 8 to 12 hours. To get results at home, we recommend taking Prunelax at night before bed.
WHAT IS YOUR STANDARD ANSWER?
Maximum Relief has 25mg of Senna while Regular Strength has 15 mg of Senna. Both versions have naturally derived ingredients to provide safe and effective relief from constipation.
FOR HOW LONG CAN YOU TAKE PRUNELAX?
Prunelax® can be used for up to 7 consecutive days to treat occasional constipation.
PRUNELAX DURING PREGNANCY AND BREASTFEEDING
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.
CAN PRUNELAX PROVOKE DEPENDENCY?

Prunelax contains no addictive ingredients.

DOES THE LONG-TERM CONSUMPTION OF LAXATIVES INCREASE TOLERANCE?
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.

ANY OTHER PREOCUPATIONS?

· Do not use for longer than one week without checking with your doctor.

· Do not use laxative products when abdominal pain, nausea, or vomiting is present unless directed by a physician.

· If you have noticed a sudden change in bowel movements that persists over a period of two weeks, consult a physician before using a laxative. Rectal bleeding or failure to have a bowel movement after use of a laxative may indicate a serious condition; discontinue use and consult your physician.

· In case of overdose, seek professional assistance or contact a Poison Control Center immediately.
