side effect of lubowel is diarrhoea,
if severe diarrhoea occurs meet your treating doctor
you can go for natural methods like using senna powder
but depending on any kind of medication ,generally has its own side effects
its good to add more fiber in your diet to increase bowel movement naturally
hope i answered your query
feel free to contact me for further queries
thank you
