What is it
MICROLAX® may be used for relief of rectal constipation and is suitable for the whole family, including babies. It may also be used as directed by a physician in preparation for a rectal examination (rectoscopic or sigmoidoscopic examination).
MICROLAX® is a fastacting microenema which works to soften stool and gently assist with bowel movements usually within 5 to 20 minutes.
Twist the seal of the nozzle.
Squeeze the tube slightly so that a drop of MICROLAX® smears the tip – this will lubricate the nozzle and make insertion easier.
Insert the nozzle fully into the rectum.
NOTE. In Children under 3 years of age, insert only half the length of the nozzle (see indication on the nozzle).
Squeeze out the contents fully by squeezing the shoulder of the tube.
Withdraw the nozzle still squeezing tightly.
After use, dispose of the microenema – so easy and hygienic.
