My son was first prescribed movicol 22 months ago when he was constipated and then followed with holding. About 10 months ago when putting in my repeat prescription we were given Laxido and told it was the same anyway. In the time he was taking Laxido, tummy ache was more frequent and I struggled to get him to drink it so we were again given movicol. Then 2 weeks ago he was prescribed cosmocol (on repeat with no consultation that it was being changed)
I have had a battle with the surgery receptionist to get her to get the doctor to prescribe movicol. Twice in the last two weeks she has given me cosmocol which my son will not drink (it smells different to me) Even though I asked for a call back from the doctor she has communicated with me by getting the receptionist to ring me, and to tell me to add squash (which I of course do anyway). Finally today she seems to of relented and done me a prescription for movicol. Unfortunately while all of this has been going on my son hasn't had anything and is now feeling pretty rotten
Has anyone else had trouble getting movicol? Do they all taste different or is my son being difficult? My guess is that it's probably a cost thing.
Sorry for the rant, thanks x
