Q.

Consitpation

My 2 year old is still on soya milk (has been since 3 months) - she has been quite constipated lately. I was given Lacson to help in this regard, but after a few days she is constipated again. Can I use Lacson long term every second day or so? Or is there anything else you can recommend? Thanks

You can use Lacson 10ml daily for a fairly long time. Try her on it daily for about 3 weeks and see if she improves. After that give the Lacson every second day for about 2 weeks then stop.
