If your child has been assessed by a GP and constipation has been diagnosed, your GP may recommend that you complete a Disimpaction (clearing out the old poo) using macrogol laxatives.
This webinar is for parents and carers who want to know more information about doing a disimpaction and understanding more about what to expect.
With the Christmas holidays fast approaching, many families use this time to do a disimpaction.
Understanding the process and preparing the medication can be a stumbling block for some parents.
The Helpline team will be discussing:
- how the process works
- how to prepare the medication correctly
- tips on disguising the taste for children
We will explain what to expect during the process and how to find the correct maintenance dose afterwards.
