“I had a painful insertion. I think I might have hemorrhoids. It appeared to do little. I had applied about 1/4 of container and had voided bowels just a few hours earlier. Impossible for one person home alone to use effectively. Designers must know this.”

“I had a horrific reaction to this Fleet Enema when I had to use for a bowel prep. I have internal hemorrhoids and did not know it until after my scope, but my insertion was horrible. It got 10 times worse when I applied the fluid. It was so bad I was could only use 1/2 the bottle because of the pain. I had to go to the bathroom immediately where most the water came strait out, I did go to the bathroom as well. But I had so much rectal swelling, seriously it had me in tears. I would prefer magnesium citrate any day then to have to go back through that. I also still have rectal pain from the trauma and it’s been almost a month now. Please be careful!”

“I’m sure this is great for constipation, but I was not constipated and told to use for bowel prep before an examination - was fine and easy to initially evacuate and then had no issues. But about 4 hours later I’ve started experiencing unexpected stomach cramps and diarrhea. Not sure why the effects are lingering for me.”

“I have IBS C&D so I’m use to stomach aches. I usually use magnesium citrate once amonth just to get my gut in order, especially since I started keto. All the fat & protein can do a number on the belly. I will say, at first (maybe for 3 mins ) it kinda burned but within 2 mins I started having bowel movements. I was done within 30 mins and now I just feel a little sore in my anal muscles lol. But good! Mag cit. leaves you with 5-6 hrs of waiting than 1-4hrs of diarrhea So this was nice to be in an out within 1hr 10/10”

“Just used this product for first time in preparation for hemorrhoid removal surgery in the morning. It kicked in within 3-4 minutes. Seems to have cleared things for now. I get to do it again in the morning, oh joy. ”

“Terrible product. Not the first time I have used for bowel prep for sigmoidoscopy and both times it has caused severe cramps, chills, headache and rectal bleeding. I am guessing if used for constipation perhaps not absorbing as much of the medication to get the severe cramps.”

“Used Fleet for bowel prep before a sigmoidoscopy. It was extremely painful, made me sick to my stomach for hours, the chills and shakes, increased heart rate, cramping even after I emptied my bowels. ”

“Used before surgery day. I passed out. I don't know why. The surgery is today. Wondering if I should let the surgeon know. Afraid of rescheduling procedure.”
