Celevac is a bulking agent that can also be used to control diarrhoea, constipation, and spasmodic pain caused by conditions such as diverticular disease or ulcerative colitis. As a bulking agent it can produce a feeling of fullness which can help control appetite.
This medicine works by absorbing water in the bowel and swelling. The increased bulk in the bowel helps regulate bowel movement and improve stool consistency.
This medicine is available as tablets that are taken by mouth.
It is best to chew the tablets before swallowing them.
Do not take this medicine just before going to bed.
Speak to your doctor if your symptoms do not improve or if they get worse during treatment with this medicine.
