What is Saline Laxative?

Phosphate Laxative 7.2 gram-2.7 gram/15 mL Oral Liquid
Drug Name: SOD PHOS MONO/DIBASIC SOLN-PO
Uses: Your doctor may prescribe this product (usually along with other products) to clean stool from the intestines before surgery or certain bowel procedures (such as colonoscopy, radiography). Use it only as directed by your doctor. It may also be used to relieve occasional constipation. However, when treating constipation, you should use milder products (such as stool softeners, bulk-forming laxatives) whenever possible. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about other treatment options. Sodium phosphate is a saline laxative that is thought to work by increasing fluid in the small intestine. It usually results in a bowel movement after 30 minutes to 6 hours. Do not use this medication in children unless directed by the doctor.
