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. Just follow instructions in the pack, and ask your pharmacist if you have any questions. Always read the label. Use only as directed and consult your Healthcare Professional if symptoms persist.
Suitable For: Ages 12 & up.
The fluid content of
MOVICOL when re-constituted with water does not replace regular fluid
intake and adequate fluid intake must be maintained. Adverse reactions
are possible as described under Adverse Reactions. If patients develop
any symptoms indicating shifts of fluid/electrolytes (eg. oedema,
shortness of breath, increasing fatigue, dehydration, cardiac failure)
MOVICOL should be stopped immediately and electrolytes measured, and any
abnormality should be treated appropriately.
The absorption of other medicinal products could transiently be reduced due to a decrease in gastro-intestinal transit time induced by MOVICOL (see interactions with other drugs).
As with all laxatives, prolonged use is not usually recommended and may lead to dependence. If prolonged use is necessary, it should only be under medical supervision. Extended use may be necessary in the care of patients with severe chronic or resistant constipation, secondary to multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's Disease, or induced by regular constipating medication, in particular opioids and antimuscarinics. Patients should be advised to drink plenty of water. They should also increase fibre in the diet, except in the case of medication-induced constipation.
This medicine helps you to have a comfortable bowel movement even if you have been constipated for a long time. It also works in faecal impaction (as determined by your doctor).
