Kristalose Description

Kristalose is a prescription strength laxative to treat acute and chronic bouts of constipation and provide relief in 24-48 hours. The active ingredient is Lactulose, which is a synthetic sugar. Your doctor may recommend treatment daily if you are experiencing chronic constipation due to other meds you are taking long-term, or if you are a senior as bowel activity tends to slow down naturally as you age.

Taking Kristalose is easy to do; simply mix with four ounces of water and drink. There is virtually no taste and you do not need to take it with food. Each packet of Kristalose is measured for your daily dose and the packets are easy to keep in your purse, briefcase, vehicle, or wherever you may be heading, just in case constipation occurs away from home.

Easy and Effective Relief From Constipation

Once you mix and drink Kristalose, the sugar molecules are broken down by your gut bacteria and is converted into low molecular weight acids. These acids will help increase osmotic pressure and draw extra water into your lower bowel, causing your stools to soften so you are able to pass them easier. You should never strain to try and force stool out as this can cause hemorrhoids and bleeding.

Risk Factors for Constipation

There are many reasons for becoming constipated; these include not drinking enough water, insufficient fiber in your diet, travelling, stress, consuming too much dairy products, putting off having a bowel movement, illness, a pregnancy, or from the meds you are taking for an illness,. You should include fruits, veggies, beans, and whole grains in your diet so you know you are getting enough fiber. Lots of fluids throughout your day will also help to make certain you are well hydrated. Be more active to keep things moving and try setting a routine for your bowel movements.

Before You Take Kristalose

Ask your doctor about any possible harmful effects of taking Kristalose if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding to avoid any risk to your unborn or nursing baby. You doctor can determine if Kristalose is right for you once you discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have and list all OTC or Rx medications you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements. Be patient as relief can take a day or two with Kristalose so do not think it isn’t working and take a second dose before you are directed to.

Kristalose Precautions

If you are a diabetic, you should monitor your blood glucose levels while taking Kristalose. Never share Kristalose or any of your Rx meds with anyone, even if they have the same symptoms as you. Revisit your doctor if Kristalose has not worked after two days or if your symptoms of constipation have worsened.
