Health and Product Warnings

The fluid content of MOVICOL Lemon-Lime Flavour when re-constituted with water does not replace regular fluid intake and adequate fluid intake must be maintained. Adverse reactions are possible as described under Section 4.8 Adverse Effects (Undesirable Effects). If patients develop any symptoms indicating shifts of fluid/electrolytes (eg. oedema, shortness of breath, increasing fatigue, dehydration, cardiac failure) MOVICOL Lemon-Lime Flavour should be stopped immediately and electrolytes measured, and any abnormality should be treated appropriately. The absorption of other medicines could transiently be reduced due to a decrease in gastro-intestinal transit time induced by MOVICOL Lemon-Lime Flavour (Section 4.5 Interactions with other Medicines and other forms of interactions). This medicinal product contains 187 mg of sodium per sachet, equivalent to 9.3% of the WHO recommended maximum daily intake of 2g sodium for an adult. The maximum daily dose of this product for constipation (ie. 3 sachets) is equivalent to 28% of the WHO recommended maximum daily intake for sodium. MOVICOL is considered high in sodium. This should be particularly taken into account for those on a low salt diet. As with all laxatives, prolonged use is not usually recommended and may lead to dependence. If prolonged use is necessary, it should only be under medical supervision. Extended use may be necessary in the care of patients with severe chronic or resistant MOVICOL Lemon-Lime Flavour Paediatric use MOVICOL paediatric dosages (the MOVICOL Junior range) are approved for use in children aged 2 years and above, for chronic constipation and faecal impaction only constipation, secondary to multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's Disease, or induced by regular constipating medication, in particular opioids and antimuscarinics.
