Glycerin Suppositories

Indications
Glycerin suppositories are a gentle remedy for constipation.

Characteristics
Glycerin suppositories help bowel evacuation in several ways:

  • Mild remedy for constipation (also suitable for infants and children)
  • The defecation reflex is triggered through contact with the rectal lining. Glycerin has stool-softening effects and provides a certain lubricant effect, thereby making it easier to pass stools
  • The suppositories make it easier to pass stools if you are bedridden and soften the stools if you have painful anal complaints, e.g. haemorrhoids andpainful tears in the anal lining (anal fissures)

The suppositories shape is largely maintained as it does not melt and therefore exits the rectum in almost unchanged form during a bowel movement
The product can be used during pregnancy and breast feeding.

Appplication
Insert the suppository into the anus. The onset of action is within one hour.
