Expert Advice

  • Avoid taking a Glycerin for more than 1 week, unless prescribed by the doctor, as it leads to dependency on the laxative action to produce a bowel movement. Together with Glycerin, fiber rich diet containing whole grain bread and cereals, bran, fruits and green leafy vegetables, is essential to maintain healthy bowel function.A Glycerin should preferably be taken at bedtime because it requires 6 to 8 hours to show impact.Notify your doctor if you are on a low-sugar diet because the Glycerin contains sugars.Take Glycerin after 2 hours from other medicines, as it may interfere with the absorption of other medicines.
  • Your doctor has prescribed Carboxymethylcellulose to treat dry eye disease.It stabilizes the natural tear film and maintains necessary lubrication so your eyes don’t get dry and irritated.May require long-term use.Apply pressure on the corner of the eye (close to the nose) for about 1 minute immediately after instilling the drop.Wait for at least 5-10 minutes before delivering the next medication in the same eye to avoid dilution.Stinging sensation may occur for 1-2 mins. Notify your doctor if it persists for longer.Make sure to use within 4 weeks of opening the bottle.
