Product Claims: 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. Always read the label. Use only as directed and consult your Healthcare Professional if symptoms persist.
DOSAGE IN ADULTS AND CHILDREN OVER 12 YEARS OF AGE
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.
