Checked By

What are Movicol Constipation Relief Chocolate Powder Sachets?

These Movicol Sachets are a treatment that works to relieve the effects of constipation. These sachets each contain 4 active ingredients that help to treat the condition. The active ingredients are:

  • Potassium chloride
  • Sodium chloride
  • Sodium hydrogen carbonate
  • Macrogol 3350

Three of the active ingredients replace salts and ions that are lost as a result of constipation and macrogol 3350 helps the bowel movements to return to normal.

 

What causes constipation?

Constipation can be caused by a number of different reason, and the cause is not always obvious. Potential causes of constipation include:

  • A lack of fibre in the diet
  • A poor diet
  • Not exercising enough
  • Ignoring the urge to go to the toilet
  • Stress or anxiety
  • As a result of certain types of medication

Some medical conditions can also cause constipation.

 

Who are these sachets suitable?

These Movicol Sachets are suitable to be used by adults and children aged 12 and over. They should not be used by anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in the sachets. They should also not be used if any of the following apply to you:

  • A blockage in the gut
  • A perforated gut wall
  • Suffer from inflammatory bowel conditions such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, or toxic megacolon

If you are using any medication for another condition, speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using.

 

Can someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding use these sachets?

These sachets can be used by someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding, though it is recommended that you speak to a medical professional before using.

 

How should Movicol Constipation Relief Chocolate Powder Sachets be used?

Open a sachet and pour the contents of the sachet into a glass. Add 125ml of water to the glass and stir until it is fully dissolved. Use these sachets whenever needed for up to 2 weeks. For a more serious condition, such as faecal impaction, only use for 3 days.

 

Are there any side effects?

Don’t you just hate blockages? Whether it is in the nose and you struggle to breathe through it and smell, or whether it is a traffic jam caused by an accident that leaves you stuck on the road, they are a pain.

 

The same can be said about constipation, a simple blockage in the digestive system that can cause a lot of problems. To find the solution to constipation, first, you need to know the cause.
