  • movicol .its a laxative .the best way to take it is as follows .pure content in to a cup then pour bolling hot water in {about a quarter full }then add orange squash {not fresh orange} then top off with cold tap water so the drink taste like warm orange ...if you take it as directed you will heave! as it taste bloody horrible {a nurse on the ward told me how to take it long term .other wise i would be in trouble ..i can't stand the taste unless its done as i have mentioned

  • I use a fleet enema if really necessary after warm prune juice and stool softeners(colace) and walking and drinking at least 8-10 glasses of water a day. Lots of fruits and veggies and I drink warm water throughout the day also. If you haven't gone by using an Fleet enema after 3-4 days better head out to the Urgent Care or ER to get enemas. There's such a thing as a blockage especially if you start throwing up get to the ER. Glad you saw your Dr. today. Charry
