Movicol

I am constipated right now and have had one sachet of Movicol since Monday. So that's 5 doses of Movicol. I have been waiting for a big bowel movement but so far it's not happened. So at 12.45pm today I took 2 Movicol instead. 10.07pm now and still nothing has happened. Is this normal? Am I expecting too much too soon? Getting worried now that nothing is going to get me moving.

Anyone else have such problems with Movicol or is it just that it takes a while to work?

Thanks for listening.
