HLP Raven EnemaHLP Raven Enema

 

Description

A clear colourless solution

 

Indication

For relief of constipation.

 

Pharmacodynamic

HLP Raven Enema promotes evacuation of bowel by increasing the bulk volume an water content of stool. It provides thorough cleansing without discomfort or irritation. Saline causes retention of fluid in the bowel. Glycerin helps restore normal bowel function resulting from poor diet or lack of physical exercise. It usually acts within 15 to 30 minutes possibly due to the hygroscopic or osmotic effects; it may also have lubricating and faecal softening actions.

Sensitivity to Sodium Chloride and glycerin when the following medical problems exist: appendicitis; rectal bleeding; congestive heart failure; hypertension; diabetes mellitus; and intestinal obstruction.

 

Warning and Precaution

For rectal use only. Glycerin administered rectally may produce rectal discomfort in some individuals. Frequent or prolonged use of laxatives may result in dependence. Do not use when nausea, vomiting or abdominal pain is present. It should be used cautiously in dehydrated patients and should not be given to children ( up to 6 years of age ) unless prescribed by doctor. If use results in unusual pain or other side effects, consult a physician.
