Prolonged use of laxatives may cause serious bowel problems. Colon Care should only be used for a few days, and it is important to ensure plenty of dietary fibre, adequate fluid intake and regular exercise.
Do not use when abdominal pain, nausea or vomiting are present, or if you develop diarrhoea.
Do not use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
If symptoms persist, see your healthcare professional.
Always read the label. Use only as directed.
None expected if used as directed. Overuse may decrease absorption of nutrients and oral medications due to increased speed of transit through the intestines
