To prepare the medication:

  • Remove the nozzle from the bottle, leaving the protective cap on.
  • Remove a tablet from the aluminum foil pack and put it into the bottle.
  • Replace the nozzle on the bottle, making sure that the protective cap is on firmly.
  • Shake the bottle vigorously for at least 10 seconds, or until the tablet has dissolved. The liquid will be slightly yellow in colour.

To use the medication:

  • Lie on your left side, shake the bottle well, and grasp the bottle at the neck where it is most rigid.
  • Expose the tip of the bottle by removing the protective cap.
  • Carefully insert the lubricated tip into the rectum.
  • Slowly squeeze the container until empty.
  • Remove the tip from the rectum.
