Product description

Glycerin Suppositories relieve occasional constipation by helping to stimulate bowel movement.

This product is used to relieve occasional constipation. Glycerin belongs to a class of drugs known as hyperosmotic laxatives. It works by drawing water into the intestines. This effect usually results in a bowel movement within 15 to 60 minutes. The suppository dissolves inside the rectum, releasing the glycerin formula. This stimulates the bowl muscles and encourages them to contract the increased movement helps to loosen any blockages, helping stools to move along for easy passing. Glycerin also has a gentle lubricating effect, which helps to provide even more relief from painful constipation. Moisten before use, insert the pointed end first, and remain still whilst the suppository dissolves.
