Content 16.0 G / 100.0 ML
DOSAGE: ADULTS AND CHILDREN 12 YEARS AND OLDER: 120 mL as a single dose (delivered dose).

Lax-A Nema is a single-dose enema in a ready to-use, hand-size, disposable, squeeze bottle with a prelubricated rectal tip.
HOW TO USE: FOR RECTAL ADMINISTRATION ONLY. The preferred positions (illustrated below) are lying on left side with right knee flexed (Sims' Position), or in the knee-chest position. Self-administration may be carried out with the individual lying on a towel on the bathroom floor or in a bathtub.

NOTE: ENEMA DOES NOT REQUIRE WARMING; MAY BE USED AT ROOM TEMPERATURE. Remove protective cap from prelubricated rectal tip before use. Insert tube gently, pointing it in the direction of the navel. Slowly squeeze bottle to instill contents into rectum. Withdraw the tube.
A rubber diaphragm at base of tube prevents accidental leakage and assures controlled flow of the solution. An extra amount of solution is provided to allow for the quantity normally remaining in the bottle after squeezing. Body position should be maintained until a strong urge to defecate is felt; contents of bowel should then be expelled.

AVAILABILITY: Single dose unit containing 130 mL of solution. Each unit delivers 120 mL when used as directed.
Store at room temperature.

WARNINGS: Do not use in the presence of abdominal pain, nausea, fever or vomiting, cardiac disease, severe dehydration, or debility. Frequent or prolonged use of enemas may result in dependence for bowel function. Use only when needed or when prescribed by a physician. Elderly persons are more sensitive to the effects of enemas and are more likely to show signs of weakness, increased sweating and convulsions. Do not use rigid enema tip in colostomy patients. Do not take any laxative for more than one week, except on the advice of a physician.

CAUTION: Care should be taken to ensure that the contents of the bowel are expelled after administration. Repeated usage at short intervals should be avoided.

MEDICINAL INGREDIENTS: monobasic sodium phosphate 16 g, dibasic sodium phosphate 6 g, NON-MEDICINAL INGREDIENTS (alphabetical order): benzalkonium chloride, disodium EDTA, purified water
