Junior Strength formulation for the effective relief of constipation in children (aged 2 – 11 years).

    For the treatment of constipation, including chronic constipation in adults and children aged 2 years and older, and the resolution and prevention of recurrence of faecal impaction (as diagnosed by a doctor) in children aged 2 years and older.

    Movicol Junior Chocolate helps you to have a comfortable bowel movement even if you have been constipated for a long time.

    Directions:

    Dissolve the contents of one sachet in ¼ cup (about 62.5 mL) of water then drink it.

    Chronic Constipation/Prevention of recurrence of faecal impaction: Children aged 2-5 years: The usual starting dose is 1 sachet daily. Children aged 6-11 years: The usual starting dose is 2 sachets daily. The dose should be adjusted up or down as required to produce regular soft stools. The maximum dose needed does not normally exceed 4 sachets daily. Use in children aged 2 years and older should be limited to 12 weeks except under medical supervision. Movicol Junior is not recommended for children below 2 years of age. Adults and children 12 years and older: The recommended dose of Movicol Junior is 2 sachets a day. This can be increased up to 6 sachets daily if necessary, depending on the severity of your constipation. For chronic constipation the dose may be reduced to 1 sachet daily, according to individual response. For patients 12 years and older using 2 sachets daily or more, it is recommended to use Movicol.

    • severe inflammatory bowel disease, like ulcerative colitis, Crohn‘s disease, or toxic megacolon

    Laxative products such as Movicol Junior Chocolate have the potential to interact with other medications, by altering their absorption. Close monitoring of the effects of your medications may be necessary when you start or stop taking Movicol Junior Chocolate regularly. It is important that you should discuss this with your doctor.
