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..
Boxed Contents: Boxes of 30 sachets.
The absorption of other medicinal products could transiently be reduced due to a decrease in gastro-intestinal transit time induced by MOVICOL Junior Lemon-Lime (see Interactions with other drugs).
As with all laxatives, prolonged use is undesirable and may lead to dependence. If prolonged use is necessary, it should only be under medical supervision. 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.IMPORTANT INFORMATIONMovicol Junior is used in children aged 2 years and older and adults for the treatment of chronic constipation.
