Glycerin Suppositories

Glycerin Suppositories contain glycerin and gelatin and are used to treat constipation. Constipation can be caused by a poor diet, not drinking enough water and not going to the toilet as soon as you feel you need to. Pregnancy, a lack of exercise or movement (such as being ill in bed) and some medicines, including some pain killers, can also cause constipation. Glycerin acts as a lubricant and a mild irritant and stimulates the muscles of the intestine, causing it to contract. The contractions help to move the stools along and makes passing them out of the body much easier.

Glycerol and Gelatin

Adults and elderly: If the suppository is too soft, it may be chilled in the refrigerator or under cold running water before unwrapping. Remove the wrapping and moisten the suppository with water. Lie on your left side (if you are right handed) and draw your knees up towards your chest, with the right leg drawn up more than the left. Using your index finger or middle finger, whichever you find easier, gently push the suppository into the rectum, pointed end first. The suppository should be inserted as far as possible, pushing the end of the suppository sideways to ensure contact with the wall of the bowel. Lower your legs to a comfortable position to help you to hold the suppository in place. Retain the suppository in place for at least 15 to 20 minutes if possible. If you feel the suppository must come out immediately, it has not been inserted high enough. You may feel an immediate urge to go to the toilet. Try to ignore this as the suppository will not work for at least 15 minutes.
Not suitable for children and infants.
