Administering enema:

  • With steady pressure, gently insert enema tip into rectum with a slight side-to-side movement, with tip pointing toward navel. Insertion may be easier if person receiving enema bears down, as if having a bowel movement. This helps relax the muscles around the anus.
  • Do not force the enema tip into rectum as this can cause injury.
  • Squeeze bottle until nearly all liquid is gone. It is not necessary to empty the bottle completely, as it contains more liquid than needed.
  • Remove enema tip from rectum.
  • Retain enema in accordance with doctor's instructions.

Other Information

  • store at room temperature 20-25 deg C (68-77 deg F)
  • this product generally produces bowel movement in 2-15 minutes

Inactive ingredient
