Cleen Ready To Use Enema 133ml (formally Fleet)
Constipation generally occurs if you have three or fewer bowel movements each week, and your stools are hard, dry, and difficult to pass. In this situation, Cleen Enema can provide help and relief.
Cleen Enema is a saline laxative. Saline laxatives work by drawing water into the colon which helps produce a bowel movement. This provides a soft stool mass and increased bowel action. A bowel movement should be stimulated in 1 to 5 minutes, without pain or spasm. Cleen Enema is also ideal for bowel cleansing before undergoing a rectal examination. Plus, it's latex-free.
Cleen Enema comes in a ready-to-use, disposable squeeze bottle with a soft, pre-lubricated Comfortip.
What would you use it for?
- Relief of occasional constipation
- Where bowel cleansing is required, for a endoscopy, bowel surgery or an X-ray examination.
