Movicol Chocolate Powder is a laxative for the treatment of constipation in adults, adolescents and elderly. It is not recommended for children below 12 years of age. Movicol chocolate helps you to have a comfortable bowel movement even if you have been constipated for a long time. It does this by increasing the amount of water in the bowel, increasing the volume of the bowel contents, making them softer and easier to pass. Movicol chocolate also works in more severe cases where there may be faecal impaction.
Constipation: A dose of Movicol Chocolate is 1 sachet. Take this 1-3 times a day according to the severity of your constipation. Faecal Impaction: A dose of 8 sachets a day of Movicol Chocolate is needed for the treatment of faecal impaction. The 8 sachets should be taken within 6 hours for up to 3 days if required. If you have a heart condition do not take more than 2 sachets in any one hour. Open the sachet and pour the contents into a glass. Add about 125 ml or ¼ pint of water to the glass. Stir well until all the powder has dissolved and the Movicol Chocolate solution is clear or slightly hazy, then drink it. If you are taking Movicol Chocolate for faecal impaction it may be easier to dissolve 8 sachets in 1 litre of water.
As for all laxatives, prolonged use is not usually recommended. 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. The fluid content of MOVICOL Chocolate when re-constituted with water does not replace regular fluid intake and adequate fluid intake must be maintained. Keep out of the reach and sight of children.
