Directions to use
Single daily dosage
children 2 to under 6 years: 1 suppository or as directed by a doctor
children under 2 years: consult a doctor
Left-side position: Place child on left side with knees bent and arms resting comfortably.
Knee-chest position: Have child kneel, then lower head and chest forward until left side of face is resting on surface with left arm folded comfortably.
Caution: Remove orange protective shield before inserting.
Hold unit upright, grasping bulb of unit with fingers. Grasp orange protective shield with other hand, pull gently to remove. With steady pressure, gently insert tip into rectum with a slight side-to-side movement, with tip pointing toward navel.
Discontinue use if resistance is encountered. Forcing the tip can result in injury. Insertion may be easier if child receiving suppository bears down, as if in having a bowel movement. This helps relax the muscles around the anus. Squeeze bulb until nearly all liquid is expelled. While continuing to squeeze the bulb, remove tip from rectum and discard unit.
It is not necessary to empty unit completely. Unit contains more than the amount of liquid needed for effective use. A small amount of liquid will remain in unit after squeezing.
