  • With steady pressure, gently insert enema with tip pointing toward navel.
  • Squeeze bottle until recommended dose is expelled (it is not necessary to

    use. A small amount of liquid will remain in bottle after squeezing).

  • Remove tip from rectum.

  • Stop using if tip is hard to insert. Forcing the tip into the rectum can

    cause injury (especially if you have hemorrhoids). If enema tip causes

    rectal bleeding or pain, get immediatemedical care.

  • Maintain position until urge to evacuate is strong (usually 1 to 5 minutes).

  • If no urge is felt after 5 minutes of using, try to empty bowel. Call a doctor

    promptly if no liquid comes out of the rectum after 30 minutes because

    dehydration could occur.
