Children 5 to 11 years: 1 bottle or as directed by doctor. Children 2 to under 5 years: 1/2 bottle. 1/2 bottle preparation: Unscrew cap and remove 2 tablespoons of liquid with a measuring spoon. Replace cap and follow DIRECTIONS on back of carton. Children under 2 years. DO NOT USE. Left-side position: Place child on left side with knees bent and arms resting comfortably. Knee-chest position: Have child kneel, then lower head and chest forward until left side of face is resting on surface with left arm folded comfortably. REMOVE ORANGE PROTECTIVE SHIELD FROM ENEMA COMFORTIP BEFORE INSERTING. With steady pressure, gently insert enema tip into rectum with a slight side-to-side movement, with tip pointing toward navel. Insertion may be easier if child receiving enema bears down as if having a bowel movement. This helps relax the muscles around the anus. Do not force the enema tip into rectum as this can cause injury. Squeeze bottle until nearly all liquid is gone. It is not necessary to empty the bottle completely as it contains more liquid than needed. Remove Comfortip from rectum and keep child in position until urge to evacuate is strong (usually 2 to 5 minutes).
Using more than one enema in 24 hours can be harmful. Ask a doctor before using this product if the child is on a sodium restricted diet or has a kidney disease. Ask a doctor before using any laxative if the child: has nausea, vomiting or abdominal pain; has a sudden change in bowel habits lasting more than 2 weeks; has already used a laxative for more than 1 week. Stop using this product and consult a doctor if the child: has rectal bleeding or has no bowel movement after the enema is given. These symptoms may indicate a serious condition. Keep out of reach of children. In case of overdose or accidental ingestion, get medical help right away. Do not use 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 a colostomy, or in patients on diuretics or other medications that may affect electrolyte levels.
