Movicol long-term use

For the treatment of constipation, Movicol is usually taken for 2 weeks or until stools are consistently soft and easy to pass. If you continue to be affected by constipation after using Movicol for 14 consecutive days then you should speak to a doctor or pharmacist for advice.

What is constipation?

Normal and regular bowel movement is important for most people. However, what is “normal and regular” varies from person to person. Some may have a bowel movement every day, others less often. Whatever it is like for you, it is best that your bowel movement has a regular pattern.

  • Constipation is an occasional problem for some people. For others, it may happen more often
  • It happens when the normal muscle actions in the bowel (large intestine) slow down. This can mean that material is not easily eliminated from the body

The cause of constipation is often not known. It can be associated with:

  • Sudden change of diet
  • A diet with not enough fibre
  • Not drinking enough fluids
  • Loss of ‘tone’ of the bowel muscles in older people
  • Pregnancy
  • Medicines such as morphine or codeine
  • Having to stay in bed for a long time
  • Lack of exercise

What is Faecal Compaction?

Fecal impaction is a condition where there’s an accumulation of dry, hard stool in the rectum. It can be caused by being constipated for too long and this leads to it becoming stuck within you as well!

Symptoms of constipation

Being constipated can mean you’re not feeling quite like yourself, it can have a number of symptoms from stomach ache, feeling bloated, feeling sick or even losing your appetite.

Whatever the cause, constipation can be uncomfortable. It may make you feel bloated and heavy or generally “off colour”. Sometimes it causes headaches.

It is recommended to use changes in diet and bulk-forming medicines to control constipation before using this medicine.

These healthy tips are recommended to try to prevent constipation happening:

  • Eat a balanced diet including fresh fruit and vegetables
  • Drink enough water so that you do not become dehydrated
  • Keep up your exercise and stay fit
  • Make time to empty your bowels when your body tells you

Can someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding use Movicol Liquid?

Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking this medicine if you are pregnant, planning a pregnancy, suspect you are pregnant or breast-feeding
