Wellmex Atomic EnemaWellmex Atomic Enema

 

ACTIVE INGREDIENT

Each 100ml contains:

Sodium chloride ...................................................... 15g

Preservative : 3-methyl-6-isopropylphenol .......... 0.001g

 

PHARMACODYNAMICS

Sodium salt act by retaining fluid in the bowel by osmosis or by changing the pattern of water distribution in faeces.

 

PHARMACOKINETICS

Sodium chloride is readily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. It is present in all the body fluids and is mainly found in the extra cellular fluid. The amount of sodium chloride lost in sweat is small and the osmotic equilibrium is maintained by the excretion of surplus amounts in the urine.

 

ADVERSE EFFECTS

Enema can cause rectal irritations, which are characterized by rectal bleeding, blistering, burning, itching or pain. There can also be skin irritation surrounding the rectal area.

 

WARNINGS/PRECAUTION

Enemas should be used with caution in the elderly and should not be used by people with acute gastrointestinal conditions or inflammatory bowel disease. Enemas should not be used in patients with congenital megacolon, bowel obstruction, imperforate anus or congestive heart failure. Use with caution in patients with impaired renal function, pre-existing electrolyte disturbances or in patients on diuretics or other medications which may affect electrolyte levels or where colostomy exists. Since enema contains sodium chloride, there is a risk of elevated serum levels of sodium and decreased levels of potassium and consequent hypernatremia. This is of particular concern in children with megacolon or any other condition where there is retention of enema solution.

 

CONTRAINDICATIONS

It is contraindicated in patients with ileus, gastric retention, gastrointestinal obstruction, bowel perforation, toxic colitis and toxic magacolon.
