Docusol looks to boost OTC sales

Typharm is looking to invigorate OTC laxatives sales with the launch of Docusol Paediatric Solution.

Indicated for the effective and gentle relief of constipation in children and babies over six months, the strawberry-flavoured liquid oral solution contains docusate sodium, which acts as a gentle stimulant and helps make stools softer and easier to pass by increasing absorption of water and fats.

The oral solution should be diluted in a flavoured drink such as milk or fruit juice. A 125ml bottle retails for £7.99. The company estimates that there are a potential 270,000 cases of constipation in infants each year.
