GENERIC NAME: SENNA - RECTAL (SEN-uh)
BRAND NAME(S): Senokot
HOW TO USE: Wash hands before and after using this product. Wash and dry the rectal area. To use suppositories, remove the foil wrap and insert into the rectum. You may find it helpful to moisten the suppository with lukewarm water to soften it up. Lie down on your side and push the tapered end just inside the rectum. If the suppository has softened too much, it can be refrigerated again prior to removal from its wrapper. Laxatives should not be used in persons experiencing stomach cramps, nausea or vomiting.
