Treatment of fissure in ano- revisited. (1/107)

INTRODUCTION: Fissure in ano is a troubling and painful condition that affects a great majority of the population world over. The nature and anatomy of fissure in ano is quite clear, and much is known about the various predisposing and contributing factors that lead to initiation and progression of the disease. The preferred method of treating them, one that results in optimal clinical results and the least pain and inconvenience to the patient, however, has been open to debate. METHODS: This paper outlines a brief account of the present scenario of different techniques available for the treatment of chronic anal fissure. CONCLUSION: Medical manipulation of the internal sphincter should be a first-line treatment in anal fissure. When this fails or fissures recur, lateral subcutaneous internal sphincterotomy should be the preferred options for the treatment of chronic fissure in ano. Nevertheless, all the option should be presented to the patient with complete information about the method, cure rates, complications, and recurrence of the disease.  (+info)

CT colonography: optimisation, diagnostic performance and patient acceptability of reduced-laxative regimens using barium-based faecal tagging. (2/107)

To establish the optimum barium-based reduced-laxative tagging regimen prior to CT colonography (CTC). Ninety-five subjects underwent reduced-laxative (13 g senna/18 g magnesium citrate) CTC prior to same-day colonoscopy and were randomised to one of four tagging regimens using 20 ml 40%w/v barium sulphate: regimen A: four doses, B: three doses, C: three doses plus 220 ml 2.1% barium sulphate, or D: three doses plus 15 ml diatriazoate megluamine. Patient experience was assessed immediately after CTC and 1 week later. Two radiologists graded residual stool (1: none/scattered to 4: >50% circumference) and tagging efficacy for stool (1: untagged to 5: 100% tagged) and fluid (1: untagged, 2: layered, 3: tagged), noting the HU of tagged fluid. Preparation was good (76-94% segments graded 1), although best for regimen D (P = 0.02). Across all regimens, stool tagging quality was high (mean 3.7-4.5) and not significantly different among regimens. The HU of layered tagged fluid was higher for regimens C/D than A/B (P = 0.002). Detection of cancer (n = 2), polyps > or =6 mm (n = 21), and < or =5 mm (n = 72) was 100, 81 and 32% respectively, with only four false positives > or =6 mm. Reduced preparation was tolerated better than full endoscopic preparation by 61%. Reduced-laxative CTC with three doses of 20 ml 40% barium sulphate is as effective as more complex regimens, retaining adequate diagnostic accuracy.  (+info)

Chemical constituents of Piper betle Linn. (Piperaceae) roots. (3/107)

Column chromatography of the alcoholic extract of Piper betle roots furnished aristololactam A-II and a new phenyl propene, characterized as 4-allyl resorcinol, while the petroleum-ether extract yielded a diketosteroid, viz. stigmast-4-en-3,6-dione. All these compounds were characterized by spectroscopic means. Isolation of these compounds from this source is being reported here for the first time.  (+info)

Choice of laxatives and colonoscopic preparation in pregnant patients from the viewpoint of obstetricians and gastroenterologists. (4/107)

AIM: To elucidate the preferences of gastroenterologists at our institution and compare them to those of obstetricians when making decisions in the pregnant patient, including which type of bowel preparations to use for flexible sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy, as well as which laxatives can be used safely. METHODS: Surveys were mailed to all attending gastroenterologists (n = 53) and obstetricians (n = 99) at our institution. Each survey consisted of the 14 most common laxative or motility agents used in pregnancy and inquired about the physician's prescribing habits in the past as well as their willingness to prescribe each medication in the future. The survey also listed four common bowel preparations used prior to colonoscopy and sigmoidoscopy and asked the physician to rank the order of the preferred agent in each case. RESULTS: With regard to common laxatives, both gastroenterologists and obstetricians favor the use of Metamucil, Colace, and Citrucel. Both groups appear to refrain from using Fleets Phosphosoda and Castor oil. Of note, obstetricians are less inclined to use PEG solution and Miralax, which is not the case with gastroenterologists. In terms of comparing bowel preparations for colonoscopy, 50% of gastroenterologists prefer to use PEG solution and 50% avoid the use of Fleets Phosphosoda. Obstetricians seem to prefer Fleets Phosphosoda (20%) and tend to avoid the use of PEG solution (26%). With regard to bowel preparation for sigmoidoscopy, both groups prefer Fleets enema the most (51%), while magnesium citrate is used least often (38%). CONCLUSION: It is clear that preferences in the use of bowel cleansing preparations between the two groups exist, but there have not been many case controlled human studies in the pregnant patient that give clear cut indications for using one versus another drug. In light of the challenge of performing controlled trials in pregnant women, more extensive surveys should be undertaken to gather a larger amount of data on physician's experiences and individual preferences.  (+info)

Assessment of palliative care team activities--survey of medications prescribed immediately before and at the beginning of opioid usage. (5/107)

We established the Terminal Care Study Group, consisting of physicians, pharmacists, and nurses, in September 2001, and developed the group into the Palliative Care Team. We have surveyed the state of concomitant medications immediately before and at the beginning of opioid usage (except injections) to assess the role of the Palliative Care Team. The survey period was 3 years from October 1, 2002 to September 30, 2005. While the frequency of the prescription of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), laxatives, or antiemetics before the beginning of opioid administration did not differ significantly among the 3 periods, that at the beginning of opioid administration increased significantly in 2003 compared with 2002, and increased further in 2004. Many of the drugs used were those that were recommended in our cancer pain management program. Thus, the activities of the Palliative Care Team are considered to have led to proper measures for the control of the major adverse effects of opioids such as constipation and nausea/vomiting in addition to pain control in accordance with the WHO's pain ladder, and also contributed to improvements of the patients' QOL.  (+info)

Laxative effect of agarwood leaves and its mechanism. (6/107)

We investigated the laxative activity of an extract of agarwood leaves from Aquilaria sinensis. The laxative activity was measured in mice by counting the stool frequency and stool weight, and the drugs were orally administered. An acetone extract of agarwood leaves and senna (a representative laxative drug) both increased the stool frequency and weight, but a methanol extract did not. The laxative effect of the acetone extract was milder than that of the anthraquinoid laxative, senna, and the former did not induce diarrhea as a severe side effect. We identified the main constituent contributing to the laxative effect of the acetone extract as genkwanin 5-O-beta-primeveroside (compound 4). Compound 4 strengthened the spontaneous motility and induced contraction in the ileum. This ileal contraction induced by compound 4 was inhibited by atropine, but not by azasetron, suggesting that the effect of compound 4 was mediated by acetylcholine receptors, and not by serotonin. The laxative mechanism for compound 4 may in part involve stimulation of intestinal motility via acetylcholine receptors.  (+info)

Therefore if you are under medication you should always ask you doctor about the laxative you should take.. 2. Developing Dependency - Many people who take laxatives frequently also end up developing dependency due to which are unable to have regular bowel movements whenever they do not take the laxative.. 3. Laxative Insensitivity - This is opposite of above problem. You may end up developing insensitivity to the laxative. You body would not respond to the laxative and it may become ineffective.. 4.

Laxatives only make the process in your gastro-intestinal unit lazy. So consciously allow your GI do the work as it should!. ...
Although laxatives have been around for a long time, theres a lack of high-quality evidence about exactly how effective they are and whether certain laxatives are better than others.. Unless theres a reason why specific laxatives may be more suitable than others (see below), most adults should try using a bulk-forming laxative first. These usually start to work after about two or three days.. If your stools remain hard, try using an osmotic laxative in addition to - or instead of - a bulk-forming laxative. If your stools are soft, but are still difficult to pass, try taking a stimulant laxative in addition to a bulk-forming laxative.. Osmotic laxatives usually start to work after about two or three days, while stimulant laxatives usually have an effect within six to 12 hours.. Speak to your GP or pharmacist if youre unsure which laxative to use.

Many people believe that using laxatives after bingeing will help them to control their weight and counteract any physical effects of binge eating however this is completely untrue.. In fact by the time laxatives effect the large intestine almost all foods and calories have already been absorbed.. How do laxatives cause weight loss if they dont rid the body of calories?. Any weight-loss caused by laxative abuse is due to the loss of water, minerals, electrolytes, indigestible fibre and wastes from the colon.. Once the body becomes re-hydrated this water weight that has been lost will return once more.. Side effects of laxative abuse in bulimia.

Because most current pharmacological treatments are aimed at improving only one irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptom, it is often necessary to use a combination of therapies for adequate treatment.. Fiber - Dietary fiber should be the first laxative treatment method tried. To minimize possible discomfort, gradually increase your dietary fiber intake to approximately 20 to 25 grams per day over several weeks. Initially, foods rich in dietary fiber should be increased. If results from this therapy are disappointing, then commercially packaged fiber supplements should be used.. Read More About Dietary Fiber. Osmotic laxatives are poorly absorbed compounds that cause an influx of water into the small intestine and colon, thereby increasing stool bulk. When the recommended dosage is used, it takes approximately 1 to 2 days for osmotic laxatives to take effect.

Laxatives and Weight LossSince many people have found laxatives to be an effective way of losing weight - providing it is for a very short period of time - it can work. Most people who have found this method effective is to take the laxative before meals, and make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day because laxatives need the fluid in order to effectively release the bowels. Just be sure to be near a rest room after the meal because the laxative appears to flush the food through the digestive system rapidly, and its unpredictable in how fast that can be. The primary concern when using laxatives is not to over-use them and refrain from using them for numerous days in a row. They are effective for a short term weight loss.The Hazards of Losing Weight with LaxativesBecause laxatives were never intended to be used as a weight control method, some people who have used laxatives extensively for this purpose have suffered serious, and in some cases irreversible damage to their health. ...
Osmotic laxatives: These include non-absorbable sugar molecules, such as polyethelyne glycol (PEG), lactulose, and sorbitol, as well as poorly absorbed salt-based molecules like milk of magnesia and magnesium citrate. Osmotic laxatives have limited intestinal absorption leading to an increase in colonic intraluminal water through oncotic pressure. With increased intraluminal volume and distension, reflex peristalsis subsequently occurs. Additionally, the increase in intraluminal water also leads to softer stool and allows for easier intestinal transit. The starting daily dose for PEG is 17 g, for lactulose is 15 ml, and 30 ml for 70% sorbitol solution; the maximum effective daily dose of PEG is 68 g, lactulose is 60 ml, and for sorbitol is 150 ml. The onset of action for osmotic laxatives tends to be variable ranging from 12 to 48 hours, but when used regularly, patients will have a more consistent effect. Osmotic laxatives generally do not lead to a loss of fluids or electrolytes as they only ...

Pain is one of the most common and important symptoms of cancer, often requiring opioid analgesics for control. However constipation is one of the most frequent and debilitating side effects of opioids, occurring in 40%-70% of patients being treated for chronic pain. Although laxatives are commonly used to manage opioid-induced constipation, these agents are not always effective or satisfactory. Methylnaltrexone bromide is a peripherally acting antagonist of the mu-opioid receptor. As a quaternary amine, the ability of methylnaltrexone to cross the blood-brain barrier is limited. This allows methylnaltrexone to function as a peripherally-acting antagonist in the gastrointestinal tract without impacting opioid-mediated analgesic effects in the central nervous system. The efficacy and safety of methylnaltrexone in treating opioid-induced constipation in patients with advanced disease receiving palliative care has been demonstrated. However the efficacy of this agent has not been evaluated in more ...

By Dimitri Fernando. Many people consider constipation to be a taboo subject. You are far from alone if youre too embarrassed to discuss it. About 14% of adults in the United States are affected by constipation and an astounding 3.2 million medical visits every year are due to constipation related issues. Its a common and widespread issue. For the sake of our health, maybe its time we opened a dialogue even though nobody wants to talk about it.. Every year Americans spend three-quarters of a billion dollars on laxatives, but still its not helping. Often constipation is made worse by pharmaceutical laxatives and stool softeners. The problem is that laxative overuse can lead to dependency. without using strong laxatives it may be difficult or impossible to have a bowel movement. Over-the-counter (OTC) laxatives also tend to produce some serious side effects including abdominal cramps, dehydration, dizziness, low blood pressure, electrolyte imbalance, and bloody stool. These are undesirable and ...
BACKGROUND: Laxatives are among the most widely used over-the-counter medications in the United States but studies examining their potential hazardous side effects are sparse. Associations between laxative use and risk for fractures and change in bone mineral density [BMD] have not previously been investigated. METHODS: This prospective analysis included 161,808 postmenopausal women (8907 users and 151,497 nonusers of laxatives) enrolled in the WHI Observational Study and Clinical Trials. Women were recruited from October 1, 1993, to December 31, 1998, at 40 clinical centers in the United States and were eligible if they were 50 to 79 years old and were postmenopausal at the time of enrollment. Medication inventories were obtained during in-person interviews at baseline and at the 3-year follow-up visit on everyone. Data on self-reported falls (|/=2), fractures (hip and total fractures) were used. BMD was determined at baseline and year 3 at 3 of the 40 clinical centers of the WHI. RESULTS: Age-adjusted
Laxatives can be of multiple types - from simple dietary roughage to some OTC mineral oils to prescription intestinal stimulants, there are simply a wide range of substances that can loosen stools and increase bowel movements. When should one take a laxative? I would say everyday. Dietary fibres are very good laxatives in normal individuals. Any diet should include plenty of dietary fibres. They also reduce the risk of colorectal carcinomas and reduce cholesterol and are all the more reasons to include in the diet - especially in the western population. For someone who follows a regular food habit and is generally healthy there wont be any reason to take anything else to increase bowel movements. So in short, dietary fibres(roughage) should be your everyday laxative. If you are acutely constipated for some reason, and is making you miserable, and do not have any other symptoms(such as vomiting, abdominal pain, blood in stool, etc) then you can take an over the counter laxative for one day and ...
If youre pregnant, there are ways for you to safely treat constipation without harming you or your baby. Your GP will first advise you to change your diet by increasing fibre and fluid intake. Youll also be advised to do gentle exercise.. If dietary and lifestyle changes dont work, you may be prescribed a laxative to help you pass stools more regularly. Lots of laxatives are safe for pregnant women to use because most arent absorbed by the digestive system. This means that your baby wont feel the effects of the laxative. Laxatives that are safe to use during pregnancy include the osmotic laxatives lactulose and macrogols. If these dont work, your GP may recommend taking a small dose of bisacodyl or senna (stimulant laxatives).. However, senna may not be suitable if youre in your third trimester of pregnancy, because its partially absorbed by your digestive system..

People reach for laxatives to reduce bloating and constipation, and there is a common idea that taking laxatives will cleanse the body. Unfortunately, laxatives can worsen and even cause candida overgrowth. Laxatives may cleanse out good bacteria and make intestinal lining difficult for these probiotics to flourish..

The body may become reliant on laxatives the longer they are taken, which can reduce electrolytes in the body. This may lead to lung and heart conditions among other concerns. Ultimately, the bodys reliance on a laxative means that the body is weakened, including the immune systems ability to function properly.. Many laxatives upset the digestive tract.

Side effects of laxative use include severe abdominal pain, chronic diarrhea, bloating, dehydration, gas, nausea, vomiting, electrolyte disturbances, and chronic constipation. Laxative abuse is very dangerous and can be life threatening. Laxative abuse upsets the balance of electrolytes and minerals in the body, including sodium, potassium, magnesium, and phosphorus. Proper levels of these electrolytes and minerals are necessary for the appropriate functioning of the nerves and organs, including the colon and heart. Additionally, laxative abuse can cause severe dehydration. When the colon is full of indigestible food residue, the nerves are stimulated to cause the colon to contract and release its contents. Laxatives cause a contraction. Since there is little food residue to take with it, the laxative takes a great deal of water with it when it evacuates the body. Severe dehydration can result and is characterized by tremors, weakness, blurry vision, fainting, kidney damage, and, in extreme ...

Constipation is the most common digestive complaint, affecting about 12% of the population, of whom 16-40% use laxatives.1 2 Since more than 11 million laxative items are prescribed in the community in the UK every year,3 it is important that these are both clinically and cost effective.

The authors carried out a … ...
There are no studies assessing a stepwise approach to laxative therapy. It is recommended that therapy begin with a bulk-forming agent, then an osmotic laxative followed by a stimulant laxative, if needed.10,23 There is insufficient evidence to recommend docusate for the prevention or treatment of constipation10,28; anecdotal experience suggests it might alleviate straining in selected patients (eg, those who recently underwent rectal surgery or had myocardial infarction). The Beers criteria state that mineral oil should be avoided in older adults owing to concerns about aspiration; safer alternatives are available.15. Recommendations for laxatives in older adults are similar to those used in the general adult population.2 Bulking agents (eg, psyllium) are effective in the management of constipation in patients who can drink 1 glass of water with each dose. Mrs N.M. has tried psyllium, which resulted in fecal impaction due to low fluid intake. Treatment of impaction would include manual ...

Study Design: The study was conducted by 6 primary care pediatricians, serving a population of 5113 children aged birth through 12 years, but only 2068 of them were 6 months-6 years.

In the second part of the study, all patients aged 6 months to 6 years with chronic constipation, and age and sex matched controls, were evaluated for atopy. and its association with CC. A questionnaire was completed including personal and family history of atopy and bowel movement characteristics. Patients were tested for atopy by specific serum IgE and/or skin-prick tests. Constipated patients, refractory to osmotic laxatives, underwent a 4-week CMP elimination diet. Results: 91 (1.8 %) had CC, and ...

Although constipation can be caused by a wide range of things, it is usually a disorder of bowel function rather than a structural problem with the rectum or intestines. If you ingest inadequate fluid or fiber, your stool may move through the bowels slowly and the stool can harden. Treatments for Constipation The most common way people treat constipation is through the use of laxatives. There are many different kinds of laxatives, from stimulants to stool softeners, and some are safer than others. However, laxatives can become habit forming, and bowel movements could end up depending upon them, so it is recommended that you seek milder forms of treatment before trying laxatives. If laxatives do not work a doctor may use a gloved finger to clear hard stool from the rectum (disimpaction). You may also receive an enema to help facilitate smoother bowel movements. If constipation is chronic, severe and has persisted through other treatments, surgery may be recommended to remove part of the colon. If ...

Bulk-Forming Laxatives: Bulk-forming laxatives are natural or synthetic polysaccharides or cellulose derivatives that work by absorbing water and increasing fecal mass, thereby increasing the frequency and softening the consistency of stool.4 Bulk-forming laxatives include bran, psyllium, methylcellulose, calcium polycarbophil, and wheat dextrin. Psyllium undergoes bacterial fermentation in the colon, which produces gas and bloating, and generally is poorly tolerated. Powder formulations of psyllium often feel gritty when mixed with liquids. Wheat dextrin is a tasteless, colorless, soluble fiber that can be dissolved in most foods or beverages and does not cause bloating.19. Increased fiber intake generally is not beneficial in patients with STC or DD. Several small studies examining the effects of fiber (14-20 g/day) on constipation failed to show a difference in STC or DD patients.20-23 A meta-analysis found that bran consumption increased stool weight and decreased transit time, but had ...

In the KODIAC‐04 and KODIAC‐05 trials, response rates at 12 weeks were significantly higher with MOVANTIK 25 mg compared with placebo. The most common adverse reactions with MOVANTIK were abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, flatulence, vomiting, headache, and hyperhidrosis.. MOVANTIK provides an oral treatment option thats specifically designed for patients struggling with opioid-induced constipation. When administered at recommended dose levels, MOVANTIK decreases the constipating effect of opioids by blocking opioids from binding to mu-receptors in the bowel, said Cathy Datto, US Medical Lead at AstraZeneca. And because of its design, at recommended doses, the central nervous system penetration of MOVANTIK is expected to be negligible, limiting the potential for interference with opioid pain relief.. On March 19, 2015, AstraZeneca announced a co-commercialization agreement with Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. for MOVANTIK in the US, in line with the Companys strategy of delivering value through ...
