Saline Enema Description from Fleet
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 hydrate and soften the stool to help produce a bowel movement. It is ideal for bowel cleansing before undergoing a rectal examination.
