Directions for use :
Remove foil wrapping
Lie on your left side and draw your knees up towards your chest, with your right leg drawn up a little more than your left.
Using your forefinger (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 side-ways to ensure contact with the wall of your bowel.
Lower your legs to a comfortable position to help you to hold the suppository in place.
Retain the suppository for fifteen to twenty 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. Do not respond to this feeling as the suppository will not work for at least fifteen minutes.
Each suppository contains : Bisacodyl BP 5mg
