Fast and effective replacement of lost water and body salts
DIORALYTE is recommended for the replacement of essential water and salt loss in infants, children and adults from whatever cause and in the treatment of watery diarrhoea of various causes. Early use is important to avoid dehydration, particularly in the young and elderly.
Drug Interaction Precautions :
Ask your doctor before taking this medicine if:
- You have persistent vomiting.
- You are suffering from an intestinal obstruction (which may give you severe pain or swelling).
- You have kidney or liver trouble
- You are already taking any other medication.
Always make sure that each sachet is dissolved in 200 ml (7fl oz) of water.
If more than the recommended amount of water is used, the solution will be too weak and not have the most effective concentration for water and salt absorption.
If less than the recommended amount of water is used, the solution will be too concentrated and give rise to water loss instead of absorption.
DIORALYTE may be taken if you are pregnant or breast feeding, but it is advisable to seek your doctor's advice if you have diarrhoea.
This medicine should only be given to infants under 1 year of age under medical supervision.
After using DIORALYTE you should not normally experience any undesirable effects. However should you notice anything unusual tell your doctor or pharmacist .
