MICROLAX® Enema – the simple alternative.
Fast, predictable relief from constipation within 30 minutes

Twist off the cap and squeeze a drop of the solution out of the tube – that will make it even easier to insert the tip of the tube.

Sit down on the toilet in your usual position or just squat down a little and insert the neck of the tube completely into your rectum. The small rounded tip is thinner than a suppository, and can be inserted safely and painlessly when used as directed, even for children under 3.

Gently squeeze out the entire contents (only 5ml) of the tube into the rectum.

Keeping the tube squeezed tightly, withdraw the tip from the rectum. Tighten your buttox muscles to prevent the solution from running out. Important: To allow stool to soften, it is important not to have a bowel movement immediately; you should wait at least 5 minutes.

There will be a gentle bowel movement within 30 minutes after use. It will likely be a normal bowel movement that can be controlled.

After use, dispose of the micro-enema – so easy and hygienic.

Tips for use with children under 3 years of age:

  • MICROLAX® Enema is easy to use and gentle when your infant is in the usual position for nappy changing.
  • You should only insert the tube neck halfway (see marking on tube neck) and only squeeze half the contents into your baby’s rectum.
  • After squeezing in the solution, gently bring your baby’s legs together and press them on the changing pad to prevent the solution from leaking out.
