General Information

MOVICOL Liquid 500ml Orange Macrogol Plus Electrolytes for constipation.

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.

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: 1 clear plastic 25 mL measuring cup,

Size: 250mL

Warnings

The fluid content of MOVICOL Liquid 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 Liquid should be stopped immediately and electrolytes measured, and any abnormality should be treated appropriately. The absorption of other medicines could transiently be reduced due to a decrease in gastro-intestinal transit time induced by MOVICOL Liquid (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. MOVICOL Liquid contains benzyl alcohol (45.6 mg / 25 mL); if extended treatment is required for the management of constipation the maximum recommended dose of 3 times 25 mL dose per day should not be exceeded.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

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 diagnosed by your doctor). MOVICOL Liquid is for use in adults and children 12 years of age or over.

Ingredients

Contains: Each 25 mL contains 13.125 g of macrogol 3350 and electrolytes.

Directions

This product must be diluted before use. One dose is 25 mL of MOVICOL Liquid diluted with 100 mL of water, to make a total volume of 125 mL.
Constipation: The recommended dose is one dose daily. This can be increased to 2 or 3 doses daily if necessary. If extended treatment is required for constipation, do not exceed the maximum recommended dose of 3 doses daily.
Faecal impaction: The dose is 8 doses a day taken within 6 hours. You may need to take this dose for up to 3 days. If you have a heart condition, do not take more than 2 doses in any one hour.
How to mix:
Open the bottle and measure 25 mL using the measuring cup. Pour the Liquid into a glass and then add 100 mL of water. When the MOVICOL Liquid Orange flavour solution is clear, drink it.
If you are taking MOVICOL Liquid for faecal impaction, it may be more convenient to add eight 25 mL measures to 800 mL of water. It is essential to dilute MOVICOL Liquid as directed. This will help to reduce any potential risk of dehydration. Please rinse the measuring cup after use and replace it on the bottle. Any diluted MOVICOL solution not used within 24 hours should be disposed of. Drink plenty of water. Increase fibre in diet except in cases of medication induced constipation. Prolonged use of laxatives is undesirable and may lead to dependence. If symptoms persist seek medical advice. In some circumstances, prolonged use may be necessary but should only be under medical supervision. If you take too much MOVICOL Liquid and get bad diarrhoea, stop taking it until it stops. If constipation recurs, you should check with your doctor or pharmacist before taking a new course of MOVICOL Liquid. If you are worried, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

USAGE ADVICE

MOVICOL Liquid is a liquid concentrate for oral solution that equires dilution before use. Any diluted solution should be discarded after 24 hours.
