Movicol Plain Laxative Powder – 30 Sachets


Checked By

What is Movicol Plain Laxative Powder?

These Movicol Laxative Sachets are a form of treatment that helps to provide relief for the effects of constipation. Using these laxatives will help to get your bowel movements back to normal and remove the painful and/or uncomfortable feeling associated with constipation. They work by helping to increase the volume of the poo in the stomach, which will help them to move in the bowel.


What is constipation?

Constipation is a common condition that can affect anyone. It is characterised by the feeling of pain in the stomach. Constipation can be caused by a number of different factors, including:

  • A lack of fibre in your diet
  • Not drinking enough liquids
  • Not being active enough
  • Resisting going to the toilet when you need to
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • A major diet change
  • A side effect of certain types of medication

In some cases, a medical condition can cause constipation. If you think constipation may be caused by another condition, then speak to a doctor.


Who are these Movicol Sachets suitable for?

These laxatives are suitable for adults and children aged 12 and over. Anyone who is allergic to any of the ingredients should not use these laxatives. If you suffer from faecal impaction, a more extreme form of constipation, then you can use these laxatives to help treat it. You should not use these laxatives if you suffer from any of the following:

  • Gut obstruction
  • A perforation in the gut wall
  • A serious bowel condition such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s Disease, or toxic megacolon

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


Can these sachets be used when pregnant or breastfeeding?

Yes, the sachets are suitable to be used when pregnant or breastfeeding. However, a large amount of fluid intake is also recommended.


How should Movicol Plain Laxative Powder be used?

When using, pour a single sachet into 125ml of water (about a ¼ pint), mix and then drink. Do this between 1-3 times a day as necessary for up to two weeks. If you need to use for longer than two weeks, speak to your doctor. If you suffer from faecal impaction, then you should use up to eight sachets within a 6-hour period for up to three days. Before doing this, make sure that you are definitely suffering from the condition.

Are there any side effects?

Like with many types of medicine, there is a chance of a side effect. Potential side effects include:

  • A skin rash
  • Itching
  • Red skin
  • Nettle rash
  • Swelling in the face, throat, hands, or feet
  • A headache
  • Feeling bloated
  • Passing more wind
  • Mild diarrhoea
  • Soreness of the anus

If you notice a side effect, then speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist as soon as possible. You can also any side effect that you notice using the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme.


Why do I need to answer questions to buy this product?

You do not need a prescription for Movicol Plain Sachets, however, you will be asked to complete a short medical questionnaire by your Chemist 4 U pharmacist before we can take your order. This includes some simple questions that all pharmacies legally are required to ask before supplying this kind of product. This helps our pharmacy team to be sure that Movicol is the best choice for you.

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.
