“A family first aid necessity”

When to take

Hydralyte may be taken on the first signs of fluid loss due to vomiting and diarrhoea.

Hydralyte may also be taken to help manage dehydration due to the loss of fluids through heavy sweating. This can be caused by a hot or dry environment, fever or strenuous exercise.

Hydralyte helps to restore fluid lost as a result of the diuretic effect of alcohol and is best taken before you go to bed.
