This medicine is used in the treatment of children and adults with dehydration due to diarrhea (except those with severe dehydration). It replaces fluid and electrolytes (body salts) lost due to diarrhea and/or vomiting.
First, determine the level of dehydration of the patient. You can check the drug leaflet in the packaging for the chart. If he or she has severe dehydration, consult a doctor or go to the emergency room.
Next, open the sachet and dissolve the granules in the appropriate amount of clean drinking water. Again, refer to the instructions on the packaging to determine how many sachets and how much water to use.
In addition, do not use other beverages such as tea, soda, milk, or fruit juice. The caffeine, sodium, and sugar content of these drinks can make dehydration worse.
Lastly, ensure that the entire glass of water mixed with granules is consumed. You can prepare a large container and store it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Dispose of any remaining granules or solution.
