Patients should be advised to drink plenty of water. They should also increase fibre in the diet, except in the case of medication-induced constipation.
Movicol Junior is used in children aged 2 years and older and adults for the treatment of chronic constipation. Constipation is the less frequent than normal passing of large, firm or hard stools.
