Useful as a laxative in the relief of constipation, and as a bowel evacuant for a variety of diagnostic, surgical and therapeutic indications. Dibasic sodium phosphate and monobasic sodium phosphate are poorly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and retain water in the lumen of the intestine. When administered rectally as an enema, they produce a watery evacuation of the bowel. Fleet Enema provides cleansing action and induces complete emptying of the left colon usually in 2 to 5 minutes.
Should not be used when the following medical problems exist: appendicitis (or symptoms of), intestinal blockage, ulcerative colitis, ileitis, heart disease, rectal bleeding, high blood pressure, kidney disease.
Dosage And Administration: For rectal use only.
Adults: 120 mL. Children 2 to 12 years: 60 mL as a single dose or as directed by a physician. Children under 2 years: consult a physician.
The enema does not require warming. May be used at room temperature.
Preferred Position: Lying on left side with knees flexed, or in the knee-chest position. Remove protective cap from the prelubricated rectal tube before using. Insert tube gently, pointing it in the direction of the navel. Slowly squeeze bottle to empty contents into rectum. Rubber diaphragm at base of tube prevents accidental leakage and assures controlled flow of the enema solution. Withdraw the tube from rectum. (An extra amount of solution is provided to allow for the quantity normally remaining in bottle after squeezing.) Maintain position until defecation impulse is felt, usually within 2 to 5 minutes.
Each 100 mL of solution contains: monobasic sodium phosphate 16 g and dibasic sodium phosphate 6 g in single dose disposable unit. Nonmedicinal ingredients: sodium methylhydroxybenzoate. Ready-to-use, hand size plastic squeeze bottles of 130 mL, with a 5 cm prelubricated rectal tube and protective cap.
