What is Konsyl-D ?


Konsyl-D is a bulk-forming laxative. When taken by mouth, methylcellulose absorbs water in the stomach and intestines, thus regulating the bulk (size), consistency, and movement of the stool. It can treat chronic constipation or chronic diarrhea. Konsyl-D is available without prescription as granules, powder, or wafers.

What should my health care professional know before I take Konsyl-D ?


They need to know if you have any of these conditions:
- abdominal or stomach pain
- intestinal or bowel blockage
- phenylketonuria
- vomiting
- an unusual or allergic reaction to Konsyl-D, tartrazine dye, other medicines, dyes, or preservatives

How should I take Konsyl-D ?


Take Konsyl-D products by mouth. Always take with plenty of water (at least one full glass or roughly 8 oz.). Take exactly as directed. There are several different forms of Konsyl-D. Find the one that suits you best. Do not take your medicine more often than directed.

Contact your pediatrician or health care professional regarding the use of this medicine in children. Special care may be needed. This laxative is not recommended for children under 6 years of age without physician supervision.

What if I miss a Konsyl-D dose ?


If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you can. If it is almost time for your next dose, take only that dose. Do not take double or extra doses.

What drug(s) may interact with Konsyl-D ?


It is best not to take Konsyl-D within 1 to 2 hours of taking other medicines. The following medicines in particular may be affected:
- digoxin
- salicylates (like aspirin, choline salicylate, or magnesium salicylate)

What side effects may I notice from taking Konsyl-D ?


Serious side effects are rare and can be prevented by taking the medication with plenty of water.
Side effects that you should report to your prescriber or health care professional as soon as possible:
- chest pain
- difficulty breathing
- difficulty swallowing
- nausea, vomiting

Side effects that usually do not require medical attention (report to your prescriber or health care professional if they continue or are bothersome):
- bloating or "gassy" feelings
- diarrhea
- lower stomach discomfort or cramps

What should I watch for while taking Konsyl-D ?


Do not use for more than one week without advice from your prescriber or health care professional. It can take up to 3 days to see the full effect of taking Konsyl-D.

If you are taking effervescent Konsyl-D tablets, be aware that these contain large amounts of sodium, especially if you are on a low-sodium diet.

Always take Konsyl-D with plenty of water. This can prevent the material swelling in the throat and prevent swallowing, or make you vomit.

Do not inhale dust from the Konsyl-D powder or granules. This can make breathing difficult and cause an allergic reaction.

Where can I keep Konsyl-D ?


Keep out of the reach of children in a container that small children cannot open.

Store at room temperature, in a tightly closed container. Protect from moisture. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date.
