The rectal insertion aspect may upset some, but these are really the best laxative out there. The side effect risk is virtually nil - because they dont stimulate/irritate the whole bowel and only a severe overdose would cause any rectal bleeding. And theyre fast acting, too.Theyre especially recommended for parents of habitually constipated children, e.g those with hereditary slow colons, who will really need regular laxatives to sustain bowel health and overall health. Bear in mind, the American Journal of Gastroenterology has admitted now that regular laxative use does not cause dependency or damage to the colon and rectum, and that dietary remedies may have no effect. So for mum and dad its a matter of choosing the most dependable medication for the child. Voila, the glycerin suppository - guaranteed itll make them do a smelly in a few minutes!
