Directions: Single daily dosage (per 24 hours). Do not use more unless directed by a doctor. See warnings. Do not use if child is taking another sodium phosphates product. Children 5 to 11 years: 1 bottle per day or as directed by a doctor. Children 2 to under 5 years: One-half bottle per day (see below). Children under 2 years: Do not use. One-half bottle preparation: Unscrew cap and remove 2 tablespoons of liquid with a measuring spoon. Replace cap and follow 'How to use this enema' directions. How to use this enema: Remove orange protective shield from enema Comfortip before inserting. With steady pressure, gently insert enema tip into rectum with a slight side-to-side movement, with tip pointing toward navel. Insertion may be easier if child receiving enema bears down, as if having a bowel movement. This helps relax the muscles around the anus. Do not force the enema tip into rectum as this can cause injury. Squeeze bottle until nearly all liquid is gone. It is not necessary to empty the bottle completely, as it contains more liquid than needed. Remove Comfortip from rectum and keep child in position until urge to evacuate is strong (usually 1 to 5 minutes). Do not allow child to retain enema solution for more than 10 minutes. If constipation continues after 1 week of use, contact your child's doctor. Positions for using this enema: Left-side position: Place child on left side with knees bent, and arms resting comfortably. Knee-chest position: Have child kneel, then lower head and chest forward until left side of face is resting on surface with left arm folded comfortably. Additional liquids by mouth are recommended while taking this product. For complete professional use warning and precautions, consult Physicians' Desk Reference.
