Q. Which laxatives may I use on Pesach?
A. Any laxative which comes as a pill which one swallows (as opposed to chewing) is acceptable on Pesach, as it is considered inedible. However, most laxatives are sold as powders which one mixes with water or another beverage. These are, therefore, considered edible, such that one must have information as to whether the powder contains chametz (or non-kosher ingredients). See the cRc Pesach Guide and website for updated information as to which laxatives are acceptable for this Pesach.
