I'm taking Movicol for right sided faecal impaction, just got a question...
I know its a laxative but is it normal to have ALOT of diarrhoea with it?! Before taking it I always fluctuated between constipation, diarrhoea and normal BMs, but since taking it I am having a lot of diarrhoea - within about 30mins of drinking the Movicol, and even hours later.
