My son has been moved from movicol to sodium picosulfate as the movicol didn't seem to be working. We've been told to give him 5-10 mls a day of it (he's an average-sized 5.5 year old). It's helped clear him out and we're having less accidents
I have 2 questions about it though
1. His poo is now quite runny. Is this what we're aiming for as it keeps him clear daily or are we giving too much? We tend to keep it at 5 mls a day because of the looseness but he's still having a few accidents a week. We're afraid to up the dose if the loose stool is not supposed to happen.
2. Has anybody who uses this seen any side-effects and what are they if so? Especially wrt behaviour.
Thanks all for your help!
