Effective relief from constipation, treatment of chronic constipation and resolution of faecal impaction.

    MOVICOL is a very effective laxative that works in harmony with your body’s own processes, to gently restore healthy bowel movements. It’s suitable for all kinds of constipation and people, easy to prepare and use, and comes in a wide range of flavours. You may have previously used MOVICOL on the advice of a healthcare professional but you can also keep MOVICOL in your cupboard at home, handy for occasional constipation episodes.

    Unlike some laxatives that work to directly cause bowel contractions, MOVICOL works in a way that’s more naturally aligned to your system. Regardless of what’s caused your constipation, it’s the loss of water as stools pass through your bowel that makes them hard, dry and difficult to pass. MOVICOL is formulated to help rectify this by aiding water retention in the bowel for an easier, more natural bowel movement. MOVICOL usually takes between 24 and 48 hours to act. While some laxatives may work slightly faster, the onset of their action can be relatively harsh and sometimes unpredictable. MOVICOL gives you effective but gentle control compared with most other laxatives.

    Directions:

    For oral administration. Each sachet should be dissolved in 125 mL water then drink it. Do not exceed the stated dose. For faecal impaction 8 sachets may be dissolved in 1 litre of water.

    Constipation: 1 sachet daily, increasing to 2 or 3 sachets daily if necessary. Faecal impaction as diagnosed by a doctor: 8 sachets a day for no more than 3 days.

    Store reconstituted solution in a refrigerator and discard any solution not used within 6 hours.

    Warnings:

    Drink plenty of water. Increase fibre in diet. Prolonged use of laxatives is undesirable and may lead to dependence. Not recommended for children less than 12 years of age.
