List of excipients
Titanium dioxide (E171)
You would need to Google for each excipient separately to find out what it does. For instance, I have discovered that Macrogol is a laxative.
Macrogol is indeed a laxative ... but I suspect it’s in the coating for Sprycel for other reasons.
Have you ever taken a sachet or two of Movicol? That’s like 95% Macrogol - more than 13g of it in each sachet. There must be an absolute minuscule amount of it in the Sprycel coating.
