Fleet Ready To Use Enema
Fleet Ready To Use Enema is a bowel cleanser that acts by increasing the water content of your stools, and in this way it helps to relieve constipation and clear the bowel. It can be used in the relief of occasional constipation and where bowel cleansing is required, such as prior to a endoscopy, bowel surgery or an X-ray examination.
Fleet Ready To Use Enema is for the relief of occasional constipation. 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, Fleet Enema can provide help and relief.
How does Fleet Enema work?
Fleet 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. Fleet Enema is also ideal for bowel cleansing before undergoing a rectal examination. Plus, it's latex-free.
Fleet Enema comes in a ready-to-use, disposable squeeze bottle with a soft, pre-lubricated Comfort tip.

I was recommended this product to treat IBS symptoms every 5-7 days after a hospital colon examination where it is used as a routine to clear out your lower colon. I cannot recommend it enough and I am genuinely surprised at one of the reviews that does not recommend it "especially before a bowel examination" - what do they expect a doctor to do? Examine your bowel when it`s full of you know what?!First time you use one of these on yourself it will feel odd but you quickly get used to it. It makes you feel considerably cleaner and better (I feel considerably better after one of these than I have done since I started having IBS symptoms nearly 8 years ago) but it is strongly recommended that you do not allow yourself to become reliant on it.Excellent value and service from this website too.
Fleet Ready To Use Enema is great value for money and easy to use. There is a lot more liquid in the bottle than you think! I had an awful headache after using so ensure you drink lots of fluids before and after use. I bought more than one and the headache is the only thing putting me off using it again! Great product though, fast delivery and good website.
