Plantaben 30 sobres


Symptomatic treatment of constipation.
Increases volume of fecal bulk and gives a proper consistency to regulate the intestinal transit.



PLANTABEN belongs to the group of medicines called volume-forming laxatives. The active substance is the cuticles of the seeds of a plant called Plantago Ovata. These cuticles have a great capacity to retain fluid, increasing the volume of the fecal mass and giving it adequate consistency to regulate intestinal transit.

PLANTABEN is used:

For the symptomatic treatment of constipation.

In situations where it would be desirable to facilitate stool deposition, for example in cases of painful bowel movements after rectal or anal surgery, anal fissures and hemorrhoids.

You should see a doctor if it gets worse or does not improve after 3 days.
