CosmoCol® (macrogol 3350 plus electrolytes) powder for oral solution.

CosmoCol® powder for oral solution is an osmotic laxative indicated for the treatment of chronic constipation and for the resolution of faecal impaction. CosmoCol® Paediatric is a POM medicine while all other currently approved formulations of CosmoCol® are P medicines.

The base compound of Macrogol 3350 is polyethylene glycol. This is an inert substance which, when taken orally acts as an osmotic laxative. The added electrolytes counteract the electrolyte shifts that result from this effect in the gut. These compounds can be difficult to take as the taste is unpleasant and the re-constituted compound has a significant volume.
