Suppositories and Enemas Questions


What’s the difference between the three rectal products?

Pedia-Lax Enema is a saline laxative. Pedia-Lax Liquid Glycerin Suppositories are a glycerin laxative administered in a liquid form applied with a disposable, no-mess applicator. Pedia-Lax Glycerin Suppositories are small suppositories. They all relieve occasional constipation.


Is your Pedia-Lax Liquid Glycerin Suppository latex-free?

Yes.


Can the Pedia-Lax Liquid Glycerin applicator be used more than once?

No, they are designed to be used only once. Each applicator contains medication for one dose.


What is the source of your glycerin, animal or vegetable?

Vegetable.


Are Pedia-Lax Glycerin Suppositories available in “infant” size?

No. Pedia-Lax suppositories are designed for use in children ages 2-5 years. Talk to your pediatrician about use in children below age 2.


My child doesn’t do well with suppositories. Every time I get one in, he pushes it out. What can I do?

Try using Pedia-Lax Liquid Glycerin Suppositories. They have the same active ingredient in liquid form and can’t be “pushed out” like a regular suppository because they are liquid.


My child is older than 5. Can I still use Pedia-Lax Liquid Glycerin or Glycerin Suppositories?

Children over the age of 5 can use Fleet Adult Liquid Glycerin or Glycerin Suppositories.
