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.
