I need a bit if advice. Dad is day three constipated after Docusate and Macrogel. He can have up to six sachets a day right? Plus a Senna at night with Docusate? I want to make sure he is taking full meds before I ring Doctor. Any helpful tips are advice appreciated. Wishing you all well!


Hi @GemsDad44, :wave:

I would encourage you to speak to your Dad’s doctor first or perhaps call NHS 111 for clarification on his medication. You can also give our helpline a call and speak to one of our advisers about this in more detail. Please give us a call 0808 800 0303.

Best wishes,

Movicol every time but do check this is OK. OH took it for years along with their Parkinsons meds with no problems. It’s mild but it works.

Hi constipation really plays havoc with your feelings of well-being and is a long time problem for me. I have to resort to 6 sachets of Laxido every now and again. I also take 2 doses a day of LACTULOSE and have a high fibre diet. Sweeetcorn helps! I hooe you get the advice you need from a
health to reassure you
