In Pharmacy Malaysia, we know that constipation is the most frequent functional disorder in routine gastroenterological practice. On the basis of epidemiological data, its prevalence is assessed at 10% of the general population and it is largely predominant among women and the elderly.
Substances in the gastrointestinal tract, which have not been absorbed in the small intestine, enter the large intestine in the form of liquid and fiber to be disposed of. The first half of the colon absorbs fluids and recycles them into the blood stream. Normal stool contains about 80% of water and if this content decreases, the stool become hard and it leads to straining and painful defecation.
Straining at stool may leads to haemorrhoids, fissures, hernia, fainting or even cerebrovascular incidents.
In constipation, the choice of treatment is based not only on efficacy, rapid and constant therapeutic effects, but also on the necessity of a long-term, safe and well-tolerated treatment.
