Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate (Lecicarbon A/Lecicarbon C Suppository)

Aspire Pharma

Description

Lecicarbon is a fast acting suppository laxative for constipation, giving a predictable, natural response. The easy to use suppository contains two salts, sodium hydrogen carbonate and sodium dihydrogen phosphate, which, when combined, react to form carbon dioxide gas that gently makes its way to the constipated area and induces peristalsis in 15-30 minutes. Lecicarbon is available in two strengths in the UK; Lecicarbon A is licensed for use in adults and adolescents over 12 years old and Lecicarbon C which can be used in children under 12 years old.
