Information - Gastrolyte Orange

Indications Oral correction of fluid and electrolyte loss in infants, children and adults. The product has been formulated to treat fluid and electrolyte loss associated with acute dehydration in infantile diarrhoea, but is also appropriate for the treatment of older children and adults. Gastrolyte is also indicated for the correction of dehydration due to traveller’s gastroenteritis and vigorous and prolonged exercise. The volume of reconstituted GASTROLYTE needed per day should be determined by the physician, taking into account the weight of the patient and severity of the condition.

Use

Oral correction of fluid and electrolyte loss in infants, children and adults. The product has been formulated to treat fluid and electrolyte loss associated with acute dehydration in infantile diarrhoea, but is also appropriate for the treatment of older children and adults.For oral administration only. A basic principle of treatment of diarrhea is to replace fluid loss and then to maintain sufficient fluid intake to replace further loss from stools. For toddlers, older children and adults, GASTROLYTE® solution may be given freely until the thirst is satisfied. For infants, a number of different regimens are used by different physicians, but the basic principle is to omit milk feeds or solids initially, while maintaining adequate fluid intake. Milk can then be reintroduced to provide calories, but to avoid worsening or prolonging the diarrhea, this should be gradual.

Ingredients

Dextrose Monohydrate, Disodium Citrate, Sodium Chloride, Potassium Chloride..

Important Notes

For oral administration only. GASTROLYTE® should not be reconstituted in diluents other than water. Each sachet should always be dissolved in 200 mL of water. A weaker solution than recommended will not contain the optimum dextrose and electrolyte concentration while a stronger solution than recommended may give rise to electrolyte imbalance. With intractable vomiting, adynamic ileus (inhibition of bowel motility), intestinal obstruction of perforated bowel, nothing should be administered orally. If the diarrhea does not improve promptly, the patients should be reassessed.Cow’s milk and artificial milk feeds in infants should be stopped for 24 hours and gradually introduced when the diarrhea has lessened. However, breast feeding should be continued.
