NICE guidance:

Macrogols are recommended
as first-choice osmotic
laxatives for the management
of constipation in adults
and children8,9

Head-to-head study:

PEG-treated patients
experienced significant
efficacy improvements
compared with
lactulose-treated patients3

Meta-analysis:

PEG was found to be a
more effective laxative than
lactulose in adult patients
with constipation10

Cochrane systematic review:

PEG should be used in
preference to lactulose
in the treatment of
chronic constipation11
