Children's Parachoc Liquid Parrafin - 400mL
- Product Type
- Every patient has their own individual dose requirement for Children's Parachoc. We suggest the following starting doses and then the patient must proceed to find their correct dose by either increasing or decreasing, in 5mL amounts, the dose of Children's Parachoc taken. This process is continued until they obtain the passage of a soft motion without the leakage of paraffin oil. 12 months - 6 years: 10mL to 15mL once a day 7 years - 12 years: 20mL once a day. Adults: 40mL once a day. Children's Parachoc should be taken once a day only. Allow 3-4 days for the recommended dose to start to soften and move the stool through the bowel. Increase dose by 5mL increments after 3-4 days if the desired effect is not achieved. If oil leaks into the child's underwear reduce dose by 5mL. Use Children's Parachoc for up to 6 months under the guidance of your doctor.
- Because Children's Parachoc is not a bowel stimulant, patients must be aware that it can take up to 4 days for a change in dose to work. Therefore the new daily dose must be maintained for at least that time to assess how effective the change is. Further alteration may be necessary, and similarly a 4 day period should be allowed to assess that change before any further alterations in dose are made.
