Care Glycerin Suppositories are a type of over-the-counter medication used to relieve constipation. They are rectal suppositories that contain glycerin as the active ingredient. Glycerin is a gentle laxative that works by drawing water into the rectum, which helps soften the stool and stimulates bowel movement. The suppositories are inserted into the rectum, and once they dissolve, they begin to exert their laxative effect. Care Glycerin Suppositories are often used for short-term relief of constipation and can be particularly helpful for individuals who cannot or prefer not to take oral laxatives. It's essential to follow the instructions provided on the packaging or as directed by your healthcare professional when using Care Glycerin Suppositories. If you have any questions or concerns about using this product, consult with one of our pharmacists for proper guidance.
