Therapeutic indications
Chronic Constipation

For the treatment of chronic constipation in adults, adolescents and the elderly.

Faecal Impaction
For resolving faecal impaction in adults, adolescents and the elderly Faecal impaction is defined as refractory constipation with faecal loading of the rectum and/or colon confirmed by physical or radiological examination of the abdomen and rectum.

Chronic Constipation
A course of treatment for constipation with MOVICOL-Half does not normally exceed two weeks, although this can be repeated if required.

As for all laxatives, prolonged use is not usually recommended. Extended use may be necessary in the care of patients with severe chronic or resistant constipation, secondary to multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's Disease, or induced by regular constipating medication, in particular opioids and antimuscarinics.
Adults, adolescents and elderly

2 - 6 sachets daily in divided doses, according to individual response.

For extended use, the dose can be adjusted down to 2 - 4 sachets daily.

Faecal Impaction
Adults, adolescents and elderly
A course of treatment for faecal impaction with MOVICOL-Half does not normally exceed 3 days.
Dosage is 16 sachets daily, all of which should be consumed within a 6 hour period.

The above dosage regimen should be stopped once disimpaction has occurred. An indicator of disimpaction is the passage of a large volume of stools. After disimpaction it is recommended that the patient follows an appropriate bowel management programme to prevent reimpaction.
This dosage regimen is based on one clinical trial.
Children (below 12 years of age): Not recommended.
Patients with impaired cardiovascular function
For the treatment of faecal impaction the dose should be divided so that no more than four sachets are taken in any one hour.

Patients with renal insufficiency
No dosage change is necessary for treatment of either constipation or faecal impaction.

Method of administration
Each sachet should be dissolved in 62.5ml water. For use in faecal impaction the correct number of sachets can be reconstituted in advance and kept covered and refrigerated for up to 6 hours. For example 16 sachets can be made up into one litre of water.
