My eighty-one year old mum was prescribed Movicol in hospital as she was taking cocodamol. She was given it three days in a row. She then experienced severe and very sudden diahorhea, which is still going on. She's at home now and her doctor has given her Immodium but it hasn't helped. She's seeing the doctor tomorrow but she's clearly distressed and worried by this. She was in hospital wiht a back problem and this awful diahorhea is the last thingshe needs. She isn't always making it to the toilet in time and last night she was up three times. My poor dad, also eight-one, is getting worn out too. I wish I could suggest something bu tI've no idea what to do. I used to mind a little girl who sometimes had to take Movicol and it had a very, shall we say, explosive effect on her. But it didn't go on for a week after she'd taken it like it has with my mum. I think she's worried that there's something else wrong but more significantly she would just like it to stop! I'd be interested to hear other people's experiences. Has anyone else had this sort of pr blem?
