Movicol

Product details

Movicol Powder Lemon Flavour is a laxative for the treatment of constipation in adults, adolescents and the elderly. It is not recommended for children under the age of 12. It is taken orally to help you to have a comfortable bowel movement, even if you have been constipated for a long time. Movicol can also help to treat very bad constipation called faecal impaction.
