  • Decreased or dark yellow urine

Active Ingredients

Sodium chloride, potassium chloride, sodium bicarbonate, citric acid anhydrous, and glucose anhydrous.


Directions

  1. Remove two tablets from the tube and replace the cap tightly.  Dissolve in 200 mL drinking water (2-3 minutes).  For babies under 6 months use freshly boiled and cooled water.
  2. Sip slowly and frequently while symptoms persist.  Discard unused solution after 2 hours or 24 hours if refrigerated.
  3. Avoid mixing Hydralyte with soft drink, cordial of fruit juice as these interfere with the dehydration process.

    6 hours in infants under 6 months; 12 hours in children under 3 years; 24 hours in children aged 3–6 years; and 48 hours for adults and children aged over 6 years.
  • Store in a cool dry place below 30°C.
