RHUGER Mixture with Rhubarb and Ginger, 100mL

PLU

$34.99


The Rhuger Mixture is an effective alternative formula with natural Rhubarb and Ginger extracts. For safe and gentle relief in infants and babies with winding and feeding problems and associated symptoms. For over 25 years Rhuger Mixture has been helping new mums with reflux symptoms, baby reflux remedies and colic remedies. It even works on constipation! Rhuger Mixture is a safe, natural product created by an experienced pharmacist and contains no artificial colour or flavouring agents. Alcohol and Preservative free.

Rhuger has a three way action on the surface of the stomach and gut by relaxing the smooth muscle, releasing trapped air, emptying the stomach and aiding the passage of contents through the gut. The earlier you start the quicker the results.

 

Active Ingredients:

Rhubarb Liquid Extract

Ginger Liquid Extract

Magnesium Carbonate Powder


Dosage:

Rhuger is best given before feeds and in small frequent doses. It is most effective when the dose is warmed to body temperature. This can be done by warming a teaspoon with hot water, or by using a little expressed breastmilk, before administering directly to baby. Rhuger can be added to formula or given during feeds.

Give Rhuger separately to Gaviscon, thickeners or Losec and Ranitidine.

Rhuger works mostly on the surface of the gut wall, so it may require you to give doses before every feed for several days in order to begin to see improvements.

Newborn Babies - (2-weeks) :0.5ml up to 6 times a day.

Babies - (6-weeks to 12-weeks) :1ml up to 6 times a day.

Infants - (3-months & over) :2mls up to 6 times a day.

Maintain for at least 2 weeks before increasing (not decreasing) doses. Rhuger may be helpful in older infants when solids are introduced or at weaning if constipation occurs.


Precautions:

  • Replace the lid after use.
  • Store away from direct sunlight.
  • Refrigeration is not critical to the life of the product, but preferably store in the fridge once opened.
  • Avoid excessive use.  If problem persists, consult your doctor.

 

Medicines have benefits and some have risks. Always read label carefully and use strictly as directed. If symptoms persist or you have side effects, please consult your doctor or healthcare professional
