Hi, my dd is being treated for constipation. It is not a case that she goes infrequently, just that her poo is always very hard and causes her a lot of distress. We tried managing it with diet but it didn't help. The doctor prescribed lactulose which made her worse so he changed her to Movicol. We have only given her a couple of doses and are already seeing good results. Does anyone know if this indicates what her problem in based on the difference in medication? I'm not clear on the difference myself but I think the doctor said the Movicol brings water to the bowel? Is that correct? She has always been a good drinker though so don't think she was dehydrated.
