Glycerol suppositories are a gentle, fast acting way to relieve occasional constipation. Especially for infants
Always read the label. Follow the directions for use. If symptons persist see your healthcare professional.
Children's suppositories: each contains glycerol 1.4g.
Glycerol suppositories are easy to insert. Remove the suppository from the plastic wrapping. Lie on your side and draw your knees towards your chest. Insert one suppository high into the rectum (back passage) with the pointed end first and retain for 15 to 30 minutes. It is not necessary for the entire suppository to melt to obtain satisfactory results. You may lubricate the tip of the suppository with water or water soluble lubricating gel (eg. KY gel) to make insertion easier.
