Normacol is a type of laxative known as a bulk-forming laxative.  This gets to work:

  • Relieving constipation, including constipation during pregnancy.
  • Controlling bowel movement in people with a colostomy, ileostomy or in people with diverticular disease of the colon and other conditions requiring a high fibre diet.
  • Re-starting and maintaining bowel movement following surgery on the rectum or anus, for example after surgery to remove piles (haemorrhoids).

FAQ

What is the ingredient of Normacol?

Normacol granules contain the active ingredient sterculia, which is a type of medicine known as a bulk-forming laxative. Sterculia is a vegetable gum from the karaya tree. It is a natural dietary fibre that is used to treat constipation, and to help regulate the passage of food through the gut in people with certain long-term bowel disorders.

How does Normacol work?

Normacol's active ingredient Sterculia is not absorbed or digested in the stomach or intestines. It swells when it comes into contact with fluids and works by increasing the volume of the gut contents. This stimulates the muscular movement of the gut, which helps to move the stools through the intestines.

How do I use Normacol?

The granules should be taken once or twice a day after meals. They should be placed dry on the tongue and swallowed immediately without chewing or crushing, with plenty of water or a cool drink. The granules may also be sprinkled onto soft food such as yoghurt and swallowed without chewing or crushing. Wash down with a drink.

How effective is Normacol?

When treating constipation the medicine normally produces a laxative effect within 12 hours.

What are the side effects of Normacol?

Some potential side effects when taking Normacol may include:
  • Excess gas in the stomach and intestines (flatulence)
  • Swelling of the abdomen
  • Obstruction of the intestine or bowel
Please read the patient information leaflet for a full list of side effects.
