Negative effects of abuse of laxatives in medical practice

Yu.M. Stepanov, O.N. Vlasova, M.V. Stoikevych


The abuse of laxatives is a disorder characterized by an incomprehensible and changing range of gastrointestinal, electrolytic and acid-base abnormalities that can lead to both the onset of chronic diseases and fatalities. Abuse is self-induced, veiled and associated with psychological abnormalities, making it difficult to diagnose. As a safe laxative drug for patients who need long-term treatment of constipation, the drug EasyDo may be recommended.
