Instructions for use:
If your child needs to empty their bowels this should be done before inserting the suppository.
You may find it easier to give your child the suppository if they are lying on their side or on their front. Do whatever is more comfortable for your child.
Wash your hands.
To remove a suppository, tear one from the strip along the perforations then peel it from the plastic wrapping by holding the two halves of the wrapping at the tip of the suppository and gently peeling them apart.
If necessary moisten the tip, then gently push the suppository into your child’s back passage (rectum) with the pointed end first.
Wash your hands.
Try to keep your child still for a minute or two.
The process should be repeated if your child needs another suppository.
Paracetamol is the active ingredient.
