A complex preparation of a unique composition of natural origin, which has a mild laxative and sorbing effect and the ability to promote the restoration of intestinal microbiocenosis in conditions of impaired motor-evacuation function of the intestine.
- helps to get a quick laxative effect
- softens stool for painless bowel movements
- helps to achieve daily bowel movements
- relieves manifestations of flatulence
- creates conditions for the restoration of intestinal microflora
Recommendations for use:
– with constipation (including chronic) to obtain a laxative effect
– as an aid to normalize stool (including its consistency) with hemorrhoids, anal fissures, proctitis
– in case of imbalance of the intestinal microflora against the background of intestinal atony (constipation) as a means of stage 1
– for the purpose of detoxification in case of intestinal atony
– for emptying the colon before X-ray and other diagnostic studies
Mode of application:
– Adults take 1-2 tablets a day before going to bed with water.
– The least effective dose of the drug should be taken to restore normal bowel function.
– Elderly patients should start treatment with a minimum dose of 1 tablet per day.
– Duration of use – up to 2 weeks, in the future, the period of use and the possibility of a second course should be agreed with the doctor.
– It is recommended to adhere to a balanced diet, limit animal fats, sweets, alcohol, salt.
– Before use, it is recommended to consult a doctor.
– After taking Sennalax, the effect occurs in 6 – 12 hours. The stool will return to normal after a few days of regular use.
Hypersensitivity to components, intestinal obstruction, acute inflammatory processes of the abdominal cavity (for example, appendicitis), abdominal pain of unknown origin, gastrointestinal and uterine bleeding, cystitis, disorders of water and electrolyte metabolism.
Sennalax is usually well tolerated, but side effects are rarely possible, which are usually reversible and quickly disappear after discontinuation of the drug or dose reduction.
On the part of the digestive tract: in isolated cases, anorexia, abdominal pain, diarrhea are possible; with prolonged use – nausea, vomiting, flatulence, intestinal pseudomelanosis, atony of the large intestine, indigestion, colic, weight loss.
From the urinary system: discoloration of urine (red or brown, depending on the pH, which has no clinical significance); with prolonged use – proteinuria, hematuria.
From the side of metabolism and metabolism: prolonged use of laxatives can lead to a loss of electrolytes, mainly potassium, which can cause impaired cardiac activity, fatigue, muscle weakness, convulsions, collapse.
From the immune system: allergic reactions (skin rashes, itching, urticaria, local or generalized rash) may occur.
In case of any reaction, you should consult your doctor regarding the further use of the drug.

A complex preparation of a unique composition of natural origin, which has a mild laxative and sorbing effect and the ability to promote the restoration of intestinal microbiocenosis in conditions of impaired motor-evacuation function of the intestine. The laxative effect is due to anthraglycosides of senna extract (mainly senosides A and B), as well as other glycosides. When taken orally, senna glycosides pass through the stomach and small intestine unchanged without being absorbed. In the large intestine, anthraglycosides are broken down by intestinal bacteria into pharmacologically active antrons and antranols, which, by irritating the interoreceptors of the large intestine, increase peristalsis and accelerate bowel emptying. Antron and antranols interfere with the absorption of water and electrolytes, facilitating the diffusion of water into the intestinal lumen. Due to the osmotic effect, there is an increase in feces, an increase in filling pressure, which contributes to the stimulation of peristalsis. Active substances – metabolites of senna anthraglycosides – are practically not absorbed, mainly excreted in feces and partially in urine, a small amount of them penetrates into breast milk.
Pectin is a natural “orderly” of our body, since it has the ability to remove poisons and harmful substances from tissues: waste products of pathogenic microorganisms, cholesterol, pesticides, heavy metal ions, radioactive elements, without disrupting the natural balance of intestinal microflora. Moreover, pectin is able to improve the intestinal microflora, which is extremely valuable for chronic atonic constipation. Due to the property of binding ions of heavy and radioactive metals, pectin is included in the diet of people in contact with heavy metals or in a contaminated living environment. The benefits of pectin also include a moderate anti-inflammatory and enveloping effect on the mucous membrane of the stomach and intestines, which creates optimal conditions for microbiocenosis – a population of bacteria beneficial to the body.
Lignin is a naturally occurring organic polymer that is found in virtually all terrestrial plants. Lignin binds and removes pathogenic microorganisms, products of their vital activity and decay, endogenous and exogenous toxins, allergens from the lumen of the gastrointestinal tract. It also neutralizes the surplus of certain metabolic products – urea, cholesterol, bilirubin, etc.
Lactulose in the large intestine under the influence of the intestinal microflora is transformed into low molecular weight (lactic, acetic) organic acids, releases hydrogen ions, as a result of which the pH decreases and osmotic changes occur, which stimulate the motility of the large intestine. Along with this, the volume of feces increases and their consistency normalizes, which contributes to physiological defecation. In liver failure, lactulose binds protein breakdown products (free ammonia and other toxins), reduces their formation by lowering the pH and inhibiting the growth of proteolytic bacteria. Due to the stimulation of the growth of bifidobacteria, the growth of pathogenic intestinal microflora is inhibited and, as a result, intoxication with the products of their metabolism decreases. With a decrease in pH, free ammonia is transformed into an ionized form, which is poorly absorbed and excreted in the feces. In addition, diffusion of ammonia from the blood into the intestine occurs, followed by its excretion from the body. When taken orally, lactulose is not absorbed or hydrolyzed in the stomach and small intestine due to the absence of a specific enzyme in the body.
After taking SENNALAX / SENNA, the effect occurs in 6 – 12 hours. The stool will return to normal after a few days of regular use.
