POLISORB is used for the treatment of diarrhea. 

POLISORB is capable of binding substances with any molecular mass, like bacteria, viruses, toxins, allergens, and other poisonous material, respectively.

Children from 1 year to 6 years should take Polisorb in complex with oral rehydration therapy after consultation with doctor.

POLISORB (m stands for medical and p for per oral) is powdered silicon dioxide intended for oral intake as an aqueous suspension. It appears as a white or whitish, odorless powder easy to disperse in water and forming a suspension. 

POLISORB is a non-organic, non-selective yet poly-functional adsorbent on the basis of highly dispersed silicon dioxide (chemical formula SiO2). It has an adsorption capacity of 300 mg/g. Silicon dioxide itself has excellent adsorptive and detoxicating properties.

In the gastrointestinal tract, Polisorb is capable of binding endogen and exogen substances with any molecular mass, including bacteria, viruses, toxins, allergens, and other poisonous material, respectively Polisorb is not disintegrated in the gastrointestinal tract, nor is it metabolised. It simply passes through the body being excreted naturally including all toxins bound during passage.

When suffering from diarrhea drink plenty of water to balance the body's fluid loss. It is particularly urgent in case of children to replace lost fluids immediately by drinking plenty of water.

Specific attention should be paid to diarrhoea persisting more than 3 days, showing blood contents or causing fever. It is recommended to see a doctor. If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking POLISORB. Do not use Polisorb longer than 30 days. Keep POLISORB out of sight and reach for children!

Do not use Polisorb for children younger than 1 year. Possible side effects when using POLISORB Side effects might occur, although not everybody gets them. Constipation (obstipation) was reported in rare cases. Allergic (-like) reactions were reported in rare cases. The formation of kidney stones containing silicon is very rarely possible in instances of long­term intake of high doses of preparations containing silicon dioxide.

If using POLISORB longer than 14 days, insufficient adsorption of vitamins and calcium may occur. Make sure that adequate fluids are consumed and that you eat a balanced diet which is rich in essential nutrients and vitamins.

Interaction of POLISORB with medicinal products Please do not take any regular medication at the same time as POLISORB. Allow for 2 hours before or after the intake. Check with your doctor whether the action of POLISORB may interact with your prescribed medication.

Do not use POLISORB in case 

• bleeding stomach and duodenal ulcer
• gastrointestinal haemorrhagic disease;
• intestinal atony;
• hypersensitivity against against silicon dioxide
