    Knee-chest position. Kneel, then lower head and chest forward until left side of face is resting on surface with left arm folded comfortably.
    Administering the laxative: CAUTION: REMOVE GREEN PROTECTIVE COVER BEFORE INSERTING. Hold unit upright, grasping bulb of unit with fingers. Grasp green protective cover with other hand, twist one revolution and pull green cover off and discard. With steady pressure, insert tip into rectum with a slight side-to side movement, with tip pointing toward navel.
    Do not force the applicator tip into the rectum, as this can cause injury. Insertion may be easier if person receiving suppository bears down as if having a bowel movement. This helps relax the muscles around the anus. Squeeze the bulb until nearly all liquid is expelled. While continuing to squeeze the bulb, remove the tip from the rectum and discard unit. It is not necessary to empty unit completely. The unit contains more than the amount of liquid needed for effective use. A small amount of liquid will remain in the unit after squeezing.
