Information for Healthcare Professionals

CosmoCol Half® is a laxative used to treat constipation and faecal impaction (persistent constipation, where a large volume of stools cause a blockage of the rectum and / or colon). CosmoCol Half® contains Macrogol 3350 which makes poo/stools/faeces softer and easier to pass, giving relief from constipation. The electrolytes (salts) help to maintain the body’s normal levels of sodium, potassium and water whilst being treated for constipation.

CosmoCol Half® is not recommended for children below 12 years of age. Please consider using CosmoCol Paediatric® in these children.
CosmoCol Half® comes in powdered form. It comes in an Orange, Lemon and Lime flavour.

CosmoCol Half® like all macrogols, must not be used with starch-based thickeners. This is because macrogols and starch-based thickeners interact and result in thin watery liquid which may not then be swallowed safely.
