Fleet has long been a trusted name in laxatives. Fleet’s Saline Enema provides relief from constipation in minutes. Recommended by doctors and has a ready to use, easy squeeze bottle with an extra 70% more volume. Each bottle comes with a flexible comfortip that is pre-lubricated for ease of insertion. Latex free.
Remove orange protective shield from enema comfortip before inserting. 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 comfortip from rectum and maintain position until urge to evacuate is strong (usually 2 to 15 minutes). Do not retain enema solution for more than 15 minutes. If constipation continues after one week of use, contact your doctor. Positions for using this enema: left-side position: lie on left side with knee bentand arms resting comfortably. Knee-chest position: kneel, then lower head and chest forward until left side of face is resting on surface with left arm folded comfortably. Adults and children 12 years and over, 1 bottle per day. Children 2 to under 12 years, one-half bottle. Children under 2 years, do not use.
For rectal use only. Dosage using more than one enema in 24 hours can be harmful. Ask a doctor before using this product if you are on a sodium-restricted diet; have kidney disease; are 65 or older and under a doctor's care for any medical condition. Ask a doctor before using any laxative if you have abdominal pain, nausea, or vomiting; a sudden change in bowel habits lasting more than 2 weeks; already used a laxative for more than 1 week. Stop use and ask a doctor if you have rectal bleeding; no bowel movement within 30 minutes of enema use; symptoms of dehydration [feeling thirsty, dizziness, vomiting, urinating less often than normal] (these symptoms may indicate a serious condition).
