Restore O.R.S. Oral Rehydration Salts Sachets X 10 are used to treat and prevent dehydration (the loss of too much water) due to diarrhoea and gastroenteritis in children and adults.
It rapidly restores energy and essential salts and fluid to speed recovery.
Although restore O.R.S. does not immediately stop diarrhoea, it replaces essential water and salts and thereby helps prevent more serious problems. Generally, restore O.R.S. should start assisting with the replacement of lost water and salts in the body after the first dose, however it is important to continue the treatment whilst diarrhoea is present as detailed on the carton.
Each sachet contains: sodium chloride 0.47g, potassium chloride 0.30g, sodium acid citrate 0.53g, and glucose 3.56g.
Empty one sachet of powder into 200mL of fresh drinking water and stir to dissolve. For infants or where fresh drinking water is not available, use freshly boiled and cooled water to make up the rehydration solution.
Do not boil the solution once it is made up. Do not add sugar, soft drink, cordial, sweeteners or any other fluids to restore O.R.S. Reconstituted solution may be stored in a fridge for up to 24 hours, otherwise unused solution should be discarded within one hour.
