Movicol helps you to have a comfortable bowel movement even if you have been constipated for a long time. Movicol also works in very bad constipation called faecal impaction. Movicol Sachet has a natural mode of action that works gently, in harmony with your body. It brings water to the hard, dry stool, and then acts locally in the colon to relieve constipation. The water retained by Movicol softens the stool and bulks it up slightly. As the stool gently expands, it naturally triggers colonic activity and a bowel movement. Because of the lubricating effect of Movicol and the rehydrated, softened, stool – the bowel movement feels comfortable.
