Hi! My daughter is 4 and has trouble with constipation due to a really restricted diet due to allergies (she can’t tolerate much fibre)- after being on the Max dose for lactulose she was going everyday but her poos were really big and hard.
So we started 2 sachets of movicol a day. This was ok for two weeks and she did lots of soft big sausage type poos.
But gradually the poos became softer and softer and smaller and smaller and soft, sloppy and sticky. I’m sure it’s not overflow as she was doing a poo everyday and they were really soft. We reduced to 1.5, to 1 sachet, then half now for the past 2 days none because she is constantly doing tiny soft sticky poos. I thought giving her body a break from it to hopefully let her poos firm up a bit before starting back on a v low dose like a teaspoon. Has anyone experienced the tiny soft poos on movicol?
