Single daily dosage. Do not use more unless directed by a doctor. See warnings. Do not use if taking another sodium phosphates product. Adults and children 12 years and over: 1 bottle. Children 2 to 11 years: Use Fleet Pedia-Lax enema. Children under 2 years: DO NOT USE. Remove orange protective shield from enema Comfortip before using. 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 person 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 maintain position until urge to evacuate is strong (usually 1 to 5 minutes). Do not retain enema solution for more than 10 minutes. Positions for using this enema: Left side position: Lie on left side with knee bent and arms resting comfortably. Knee-chest position: Kneel, then lower head and chest forward until left side of face is resting on surface with left arm folded comfortably. Additional liquids by mouth are recommended while taking this product.
