Glycerin 4g Suppositories (Care), also known as glycerol suppositories, are gelatin based and cylindrical or cone-shaped. They work through a triple action of lubrication, hydration and muscle irritation of the rectum. The lubrication phase involves lubricating the interior of the rectum, thus enabling the movement of the bowel contents towards the anal orifice. The expulsion is thus rapid and less painful, helping to avoid straining and the possible occurrence of anal fissures. During the hydration process, water from the bowel is drawn downwards to hydrate the hardened faeces for an easier bowel movement. The third action of glycerin suppositories is that of irritation of rectal muscles. The muscles are stimulated to move the bowel contents more efficiently for a smooth and less strenuous clearance.
