Microlax is a fast acting enema which works to soften bowel motions and gently assist bowel emptying without irritating the lining of the bowel.
Directions for use: 1. Twist and pull the seal off the nozzle. 2. Squeeze the tube slightly so that a drop of Microlax smears the tip and thus makes insertion easier. 3. Insert the nozzle fully into the rectum, N.B. In children under 3 years of age, insert only half the length of the nozzle (see indication on the nozzle). 4. Squeeze out the contents fully by squeezing the shoulder of the tube. 5. Keeping the tube squeezed tightly, withdraw the nozzle. Administer the contents of one tube rectally as a single dose.
Sodium citrate 90mg/ml
