Cremag is a Milk of magnesia and Liquid paraffin oral emulsion. A stool softener for relief from acute constipation and irregular bowel syndrome (IBS).It is a liquid laxative that provides relief in incomplete bowel movements and diverticulosis by easing bowel disorders.
Magnesium Hydroxide (Milk of Magnesia)
When taken orally as a laxative, the osmotic force of the magnesia suspension acts to draw fluids from the body and to retain those within the intestine. Serves to distend the bowel, thus stimulating nerves within the colon wall, inducing peristalsis and resulting in evacuation of colonic contents.
It acts as a lubricant and works by softening and lubricating the stools. This helps the stools to move more easily through the bowel.
Avoid prolonged use as a laxative or fecal softener.Possibility of Anal irritation and seepage on excessive dose
