TAMARINE * MARMELL 260G 8% + 0.39%

Therapeutic indications

Short-term treatment of occasional constipation

Dosage and method of use

The correct dose is the minimum sufficient to produce easy evacuation of soft stools. It is advisable to use the minimum doses initially. When necessary, the dose can then be increased, but never exceed the indicated one. Take preferably in the evening.Adults:1 teaspoon.Children over 10 years old: ¼ of a coffee spoon. Laxatives should be used as infrequently as possible and for no more than seven days. Use for longer periods of time requires a doctor's prescription after adequate evaluation of the individual case. Swallow with an adequate amount of water (a large glass). A diet rich in liquids favors the effect of the medicine.

Contraindications

Diabetes. Hypersensitivity to the active substances or to any of the excipients. Laxatives are contraindicated in subjects with acute abdominal pain or of unknown origin, nausea or vomiting, intestinal obstruction or stenosis, rectal bleeding of unknown origin, severe dehydration. Contraindicated in children under 10 years of age. Generally contraindicated during pregnancy and lactation (see p. 4.6).

Side effects

Occasionally: isolated cramping pains or abdominal colic, more frequent in cases of severe constipation. With the use of the product, the urine sometimes turns slightly yellow-brown or red. This coloration is simply due to the presence of senna components in the urine and is not clinically significant.

Special warnings

Warnings: The abuse of laxatives (frequent or prolonged use or with excessive doses) can cause persistent diarrhea with consequent loss of water, mineral salts (especially potassium) and other essential nutritional factors. In severe cases, the onset of dehydration or hypokalemia is possible, which can cause cardiac or neuromuscular dysfunctions, especially in the case of simultaneous treatment with cardiac glycosides, diuretics or corticosteroids. The abuse of laxatives, especially contact laxatives (stimulant laxatives), can cause addiction (and, therefore, the possible need to gradually increase the dosage), chronic constipation and loss of normal intestinal functions (intestinal atony).Precautions for use: The treatment of chronic or recurrent constipation always requires the intervention of the doctor for the diagnosis, the prescription of drugs and the surveillance during the course of therapy. Consult your doctor when the need for the laxative derives from a sudden change in previous bowel habits (frequency and characteristics of bowel movements) that has lasted for more than two weeks or when the use of the laxative fails to produce effects. It is also advisable that elderly people or those in poor health conditions consult their doctor before using the medicine.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding

There are no adequate and well-controlled studies on the use of the drug in pregnancy or breastfeeding. Therefore, since anthraquinone laxatives can be excreted in breast milk, nursing mothers should avoid taking Tamarine.

Expiration and retention

Store at a temperature not exceeding 25 ° C. Keep container tightly closed. For storage conditions after first opening see section 6.3.

Interactions with other drugs

Laxatives can reduce the time spent in the intestine, and therefore the absorption, of other drugs administered simultaneously orally. Therefore, avoid ingesting laxatives and other drugs at the same time: after taking a medicine, leave an interval of at least 2 hours before taking the laxative. Milk or antacids can change the effect of the medicine; allow an interval of at least one hour to elapse before taking the laxative.

Overdose

Excessive doses can cause abdominal pain and diarrhea; the resulting loss of fluids and electrolytes must be replaced with fluid intake. Treatment: discontinuation of the drug. See also the information in the section “Special warnings and precautions for use” regarding the abuse of laxatives.
