Should the constipation not react to treatment after a couple of days or reoccur after treatment, then a physician should be consulted. If used by patients suffering from galactosaemia or lactase deficiency, then the amount of related sugars should be taken into consideration: Duphalac liquid contains up to galactose 1.7 g and up to lactose 1 g per 15 mL.
The dose normally used in constipation should not pose a problem for diabetics. The dosage in the treatment of (pre) coma hepaticum is usually much higher and may pose a problem for diabetics.
Effects on the Ability to Drive or Operate Machinery: When taken as prescribed, Duphalac does not influence the ability to drive or operate machines.
