Fleet® Glycerin Suppositories
Promotes a Bowel Movement Within 15 Minutes to One Hour

Our Fleet® Glycerin Suppository is a convenient alternative for those who prefer not to use liquid enemas. The suppository is inserted rectally, allowing it to act locally in the colon without having to go through the entire digestive system. Doctor-recommended glycerin works by attracting water into the stool to promote a bowel movement.

Before using Fleet® Glycerin Suppositories, be sure to review the complete labeling.
