Do I need to stop taking prescribed medication, vitamins/supplements during the use of DETOXNER® IBS Maintenance?
Please continue to take all medications prescribed by your doctor. However, a minimal period of 2 hours between taking DETOXNER® (Mix) and medication is advised. The same goes for vitamins and/or supplements. DETOXNER® IBS may alter the intestinal passage time and can affect the uptake of medicines and other substances.
Can I continue to work out/exercise during the use of DETOXNER® IBS Maintenance?
Yes, this is possible.
Can I use DETOXNER® IBS Maintenance if I am pregnant or nursing?
No contraindications are known; however, it is advisable for pregnant and breastfeeding women to consult a physician before taking DETOXNER® IBS Maintenance.
Are there any side effects during the 5-day DETOXNER® IBS Maintenance programme?
Constipation may occur if you do not add enough water to the powder and/or tablet. Your abdomen may feel ‘full’. This will naturally subside. Some people experience a slight headache. This too will subside. Increased flatulence during the first days, a different smell of the stool, a positive change in your stool’s consistency, and an increased frequency of bowel movements are simply indicators that DETOXNER® IBS Intense is in fact doing what it is supposed to do.
