hi satya,
welcome to hcm
thanks for the query
looz contains lactulose. It is a stool softener, and it reduces the pain which you get while defecating
it will not cause weight may cause gas or flatulence,abdominal cramp,sometimes diarrhea and electrolyte imbalance. but is over all safe to use
take care

Thanks for query,
Looz syrup contains Lactulose,
it is safe but it may give rise to allergic side effect like itching,skin rash,gastric pain,Increasing of blood sugar.
It is possible that with any laxative proper digestion or absorption may not take place properly may be responsible not gaining weight.
For long use you ask your doctor who prescribed.
Ok and bye.
