Anyone used Laxido?

I went to see my GP this week as I could no longer stand the constipation (a charming side effect of pg!). He prescribed me Laxido which is an orange powder solution you put into water to drink, assuring me it was safe to use. Yesterday I checked the leaflet enclosed in the box, and it says "not suitable from pregnant women"! Has anyone else used this at all??

Sorry, no experience of it, but have you tried prunes or dates or dried figs? All v good, natural ways of getting things moving. Also drinking more water & generally increasing the amount of fibre in your diet - plenty of fruit & veg, wholegrains etc. May be worth speaking to a pharmacist about the laxative you were prescribed & asking why it says not suitable during pregnancy.
