Polycarbophil pharmacological action

Polycarbophil is a hydrophilic polyacrylic resin, which is a water-absorbing agent for the intestinal tract. It has a significant binding ability to water and can absorb 60 times its own weight in water. When used in the treatment of diarrhea, it can absorb the free water in the excrement and make it into a jelly-like shape to produce shaped stool. When used as a volumetric laxative, it can retain free water in the intestine, increase the pressure in the intestine, enhance peristalsis, and produce formed stool.

Polycarbophil indications

For constipation, such as chronic constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, intestinal diverticulum disease and constipation in pregnant women, the elderly, and convalescent patients, it can also be used for watery diarrhea.
