Managing Constipation...


What can you do about constipation?

Healthy lifestyle measures are the best way to prevent constipation:

  • Eat a balanced diet that includes plenty of fibre
  • Drink plenty of fluids
  • Exercise regularly, such as taking a brisk walk each day
  • Try to avoid stressful situations

But sometimes this isn’t enough, and your body needs some help – whether it’s for a few days or longer. That’s where MOVICOL® comes in.

If constipation persists or becomes a concern, seek medical advice by visiting your doctor or pharmacist. Keeping a record of your bowel movements two weeks prior to your appointment can help your doctor in understanding and diagnosing your condition.

To assist with this, you may download our diary ready to fill in and take directly to your GP or pharmacist.
