Movicol Chocolate 30 Sachets
Movicol Chocolate 30 Sachets
Movicol Chocolate Sachets provide an effective solution for constipation relief, designed to rehydrate, soften, and bulk up stools for more comfortable bowel movements. Suitable for individuals aged 12 and over, these sachets work harmoniously with the body's natural processes to gently alleviate constipation.
The active ingredient, Macrogol 3350, is a powerful laxative that absorbs water into the stool, making it softer and easier to pass. This product also contains electrolytes, which help maintain normal levels of sodium, potassium, and water in the body while providing relief from constipation. Results can typically be expected within 24-48 hours of use.
Movicol Chocolate Sachets offer a tasty chocolate flavour, making it a more enjoyable option for those seeking relief. To use, simply mix the contents of one sachet with water and consume the resulting solution. This product is also suitable for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding, but it is always recommended to consult a doctor or pharmacist before taking any medication in these circumstances.
In addition to providing relief from general constipation, Movicol Chocolate Sachets can be used to resolve faecal impaction, a more severe form of constipation. With 30 sachets included in each pack, users can keep them on hand for occasional bouts of constipation or use them under the guidance of a healthcare professional. Always read the label and follow the instructions included, seeking advice from a pharmacist if needed.
Powder containing macrogol 13.125g, sodium chloride 350mg, sodium bicarbonate 178mg, potassium chloride 50.2mg.
