Fleet® Saline Enema
Relief in just 1-5 minutes

Our original and best-selling product, the Fleet® Enema is a saline laxative that provides reliable relief from occasional constipation without pain or spasm.

You may be constipated if you have three or fewer bowel movements in a week, and your stools are hard, dry and difficult to pass. Fleet® Saline Enema works by increasing water in the intestine to soften the stool to help produce a bowel movement. It is ideal for bowel cleansing before undergoing a rectal examination.

  • With Gentle Glide Tip
  • 25% more lubrication for maximum comfort and ease of use.

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