What you need to know before you use Glycerol Suppositories

Do not use Suppositories if:

• you suffer from a blocked bowel or an abdominal problem for which you have not obtained a medical opinion

• you are allergic (hypersensitive) to glycerol or any of the other ingredients of this medicine

How to use Glycerol Suppositories

Always use Glycerol exactly as described in this leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure

1. Wash hands before opening individual packaging. If the suppository is too soft, it may be chilled in the refrigerator or under cold running water before unwrapping

2. To remove a suppository, tear one from the strip along the perforations then peel it from the plastic wrapping by grasping the two halves of the wrapping at the tip of the suppository and pulling them gently apart. The tip should be moistened with a little cold water to aid insertion.

3. 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.

4. Using your index finger or middle finger, whichever you find easier, gently push the suppository into the rectum. The suppository is shaped for rectal insertion, ensure the tip of the suppository is inserted first.

5. 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.
