Buy Micralax Micro-Enema Online From A UK Pharmacy

Micralax Micro-Enema is a small disposable enema containing an osmotic laxative. It is used to bring quick relief from mild to moderate constipation in adults with limited mobility, or when the bowels need to be cleaned before certain medical procedures, such as a colonoscopy or x-ray.

What is an enema?

An enema is a procedure in which fluid, such as water or medicine, is flushed into the bowels via the rectum (back passage). An enema may be used before an x-ray to get a clearer picture of the bones behind the bowels, or before a colonoscopy or bowel surgery.

Micralax Micro-Enemas are single-use enemas which treat constipation by flushing the large intestine with a laxative to soften stools, making them easier to pass.

Where can I buy Micralax Micro-Enema for Constipation?

You can buy Micralax Micro-Enemas online from Prescription Doctor following a quick online consultation with our medical team - this is to ensure the treatment is safe for you.

If your order is approved by our medical team before 3pm, our UK pharmacy can dispatch the treatment the same day via a discreet next day delivery. All items dispatched from our pharmacy are packaged in discreet, plain packaging to ensure your privacy.

What causes constipation?

Constipation is often described as the inability or struggle to defecate (pass stools). It can affect anyone at anytime, though may be more common in certain situations.

Pregnancy increases the chance of complication due to hormonal changes which occur during pregnancy. The intestinal muscles slow down, resulting in stools staying in the bowel for longer, causing constipation.

Eating little or no fibre in your diet can also leave you constipated. Fibre is an important nutrient to keep our bowels moving regularly. It’s very important to consume plenty of foods packed with fibre.

Some medicines can also cause constipation, such as certain painkillers and high blood pressure tablets. If you suspect a medicine is causing you constipation, speak to your doctor. You shouldn’t stop taking a medicine you have been prescribed without first speaking to your doctor.

For most people, constipation is transient and can go away with time and dietary changes. However, other cases may be more serious and require the use of laxatives.

Moreover, constant straining due to constipation can increase your risk of developing other conditions, such as haemorrhoids.


How Does Micralax Micro-Enema Work?

Micralax micro-enema works in two ways to relieve constipation.

Firstly, it contains an osmotic laxative called sodium citrate. This ingredient draws water from the body and into the bowels, where it softens the stools and allowing them to pass more easily.

Secondly, it works because it is a liquid that is inserted into the rectum which helps to lubricate and soften faecal matter. This helps to prevent straining or pain during difficult bowel movements.

Together, the ingredients bring quick relief from constipation in as little as 15 minutes.

Laxatives are not an effective treatment for weight loss and should not be used to lose weight. For appropriate weight loss treatments, speak to your doctor.


How Do I Use Micralax Micro-Enema?

Micralax Micro-Enemas are delivered rectally. The medicine comes in single-use tubes with a nozzle which you insert into your rectum (back passage) to administer the medicine.

Only one tube should be used once a day.

Using Micralax Micro-Enema

You should follow the instructions found within the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine.

  1. Firstly, wash your hands thoroughly. Manoeuvre your body into a position which makes it easy for you to insert and dispense the enema. You might find it easier to lie on your side with your knees upwards towards your stomach.
  2. Remove the cap from the tube’s nozzle and carefully insert the nozzle into your back passage.
  3. Once the entire nozzle is inserted, gently squeeze the tube until it is empty. Keep squeezing the tube as you remove it to prevent medicine being sucked back into up the tube.
  4. Throw away the used tube in a bin. Do not flush the empty tube down the toilet.
  5. Don’t forget to wash your hands after using the Enema.

Make sure you are near a toilet when you use the enema. Micralax Micro-Enemas work quickly to bring relief from constipation.

While using any laxative, it’s important to drink plenty of water. Laxatives, such as Micralax, can lead to dehydration, as they draw water from the rest of the body. Make sure to drink about 8 glasses of water throughout the day to keep hydrated.

What should I do if I forget to use Micralax Micro-Enema when I should?

Don’t worry if you accidentally forget to use Micralax Micro-Enema when you should. Skip the missed dose and continue to take your next scheduled dose as usual. You should never use more enemas to make up for the one you missed.

If you regularly forget to take your medicine at the right time, setting an alarm will help you to remember.

What should I do if I use too many Micralax micro-enema?

If you use too many Micralax Micro-Enemas, you should go to your closest accident & emergency room as soon as possible. Take the medicine box with you, along with any remaining medication and the leaflet insert.

Micralax Micro-Enemas are packaged in individual tubes which deliver 1 dosage.

How long does Micralax take to work?

Micralax takes between 5 and 15 minutes to work, so make sure you are near a toilet after using the enema.

If you are still constipated after using Micralax Micro-Enemas for a few days, speak to your doctor. Do not try using more enemas, or using them more frequently, to relieve your constipation.

You should not use laxatives over a prolonged period. If you feel you need to keep using Micralax Micro-Enemas to keep you regular, speak to your doctor.


Micralax Micro-Enema Side Effects and Cautions

Before using Micralax Micro-Enemas, it’s important to read the accompanying patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine. This leaflet contains important information regarding the safety of Micralax, including how to safely store and dispose the enemas.

You can view the patient information leaflet for Micralax Micro-Enemas online, if you prefer.

When used correctly, side effects of Micralax Micro-Enemas are unlikely.

However, using Micralax too often may cause diarrhoea and dehydration.

If you experience any side effects after using Micralax Micro-Enemas, regardless of whether they are mention above or in the patient information leaflet, speak to your doctor for advice.

Other safety information

It’s important to let our medical team aware of other medicines you may be taking, including those on-prescription or bought over the counter, as well as health and herbal supplements.

While taking Laxatives, you should make sure to drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration. You should aim for between 6 and 8 glasses of water a day to prevent dehydration.

Do not use Micralax Micro-Enemas past the expiry date printed on the packaging. The date refers to the last day of that month.

Never throw away medicine via household or water waste, as this can damage the environment. Instead, you should ask your local pharmacy to dispose any unwanted or expired medicines for you. Check with your local pharmacy to ensure they offer this service beforehand.
