CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY: top of page

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

Mechanism of Action
Sulfate salts provide sulfate anions, which are poorly absorbed. The osmotic effect of unabsorbed sulfate anions and the associated cations causes water to be retained within the gastrointestinal tract.

Pharmacodynamics
The osmotic effect of the unabsorbed ions, when ingested with a large volume of water, produces a copious watery diarrhea.
