Constipation

Constipation is a condition that affects people of all ages on a daily basis, with an estimated one in seven adults and up to one in every three children in the UK suffering from it at any one time.

The term has different meanings for different people, but usually indicates that you are not passing stools regularly or unable to completely empty your bowel. Constipation can affect sufferers for different lengths of time, with some of the symptoms including lower abdominal pain and difficult bowel movements.

In most cases, diet and lifestyle changes, such as consuming more fibre and fluids, are recommended as the first treatment for constipation, but there are a number of over-the-counter remedies and medications available.

Here at Rowlands Pharmacy, we stock a selection of constipation treatments and laxatives to help you get back to your normal routine. Our range includes both tablets and solution treatments to cater for all needs, including the Dulcolax laxative tablets and best-selling Lactulose solution.

If these treatments and changes to your diet do not work, your GP may be able to prescribe something more effective. Visit our Advice Centre for more useful information about constipation.
