Resotran is used for the treatment of chronic constipation in adult females when laxatives do not provide adequate relief. Resotran increases the frequency of bowel movements to provide a feeling of complete evacuation by stimulating peristalsis, the muscular contractions of the gut needed for bowel movements. Take Resotran exactly as prescribed by your doctor. For adults, the usual recommended dosage is 2 mg once daily. For elderly, the dosage is 1 mg once daily. Do not exceed a dosage of 2 mg per day. This will not add to the relief of constipation. If there is no bowel movement in 3-4 days, contact your doctor. Your doctor may recommend an additional appropriate medication (e.g., laxative) for relief of immediate, acute constipation, at the same time as ongoing Resotran treatment.
Resotran is manufactured by Janssen Inc. and comes from Canada. The active ingredient in Resotran is Prucalopride Succinate. Resotran is available as tablets in the dosage forms of 1 mg and 2 mg.
