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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
You should follow the instructions found within the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine.
Make sure you are near a toilet when you use the enema. Micralax Micro-Enemas work quickly to bring relief from constipation.
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.
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.
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.
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.
