Fybogel is a laxative taken to treat constipation (difficulty pooing).
It comes as plain or fruit-flavoured granules that you mix with water to make a high-fibre drink.
Fybogel is available on prescription and to buy from pharmacies and supermarkets.
Fybogel is a high-fibre drink that you take in the morning and evening, preferably after a meal.
Fybogel takes 2 or 3 days to work.
When taking this type of laxative make sure you drink plenty of fluids.
The main side effects are wind and bloating.
Fybogel is also called ispaghula husk and Ispage.
Who can and can't take Fybogel
Fybogel can be taken by adults including pregnant and breastfeeding women.
Fybogel can be taken by children aged 6 years and older. Do not give Fybogel to a child under 6 years unless your doctor has said it's ok.
Fybogel isn't suitable for everyone. To make sure Fybogel is safe for you, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have:
had an allergic reaction to Fybogel or any other medicines in the past
a bowel obstruction
muscle weakness of the bowel (colonic atony)
a rare genetic illness called phenylketonuria
How and when to take it
Fybogel comes as sachets of plain, orange or lemon-flavoured granules. It's best to take Fybogel after a meal or snack.
How much should I take?
The normal dose for constipation in:
adults and children aged 13 years and over is 1 sachet of Fybogel granules twice a day
children aged 6 to 12 years is ½ to 1 level 5ml spoonful of Fybogel granules twice a day
children under the age of 6 years (only under medical supervision) is ½ to 1 level 5ml spoonful of Fybogel granules twice a day
How to take it
To make up the medicine, open the sachet and empty the granules into a glass. Add at least 150mls (1/4 pint) of cold water to the glass. Stir well until all the granules have dissolved and the Fybogel solution is clear or slightly hazy, and then drink it straight away.
Try not to breathe in the powder when you make up the Fybogel drink as it can occasionally trigger a mild allergic reaction.
Have your evening drink of Fybogel at least an hour before going to bed. Drinking Fybogel just before you go to sleep increases the chances of it causing a blockage in the gut.
Aim to drink 6 to 8 glasses of fluid during the day while you are taking Fybogel or the constipation may get worse
