About Care Glycerin Suppositories

Care Glycerin Suppositories are a medicine commonly used for the treatment of constipation and contain the active ingredient Glycerol. Glycerin Suppositories have a dual-action; they are stool softeners and stimulants and are useful for the rapid relief (usually within 30 minutes).

Sometimes our bodies struggle with taking medicine via the mouth. Suppositories are another option for when:

  • You can’t swallow medicine.
  • Are vomiting and can't keep a pill or liquid down.

Constipation is caused by a number of different conditions such as

  • Anxiety
  • A Lack of Exercise or poor fitness
  • Being over or underweight
  • Lifestyle changes such as different food or drink
  • Depression
  • Lack of fibre in food & drink

Constipation can happen to anybody regardless of age or health, it normally only occurs for short periods of time but on occasions can be a long term symptom which can be difficult to manage.

  • The medicine tastes too bad to take by mouth.
