Buy Glycerin 4g For Constipation Adults Size - 12 Suppositories 

Glycerin 4g For Constipation Suppositories are used to relieve occasional constipation, working as a laxative by helping to stimulate bowel movement. 


How Glycerin 4g For Constipation works

Glycerin 4g For Constipation works by making the passing of stool much easier. Once a suppository has been inserted into the anus it melts. Upon melting, it aids in the lubricating and softening of the stool. The suppositories stimulate bowel muscles to contract and move the stool along. 



Always use the product exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. 

Start by washing your hands before using the product. Remove the protective film before use by tearing the strip at the notch or by cutting around the suppository. Once the protective film has been removed, dip the suppository into water and insert it into the rectum. 


Side effects

Like all medicines, Glycerin 4g For Constipation may cause side effects in some people, but these won’t affect everybody. Common side effects include: 


  • Bowel irritation 
  • Stomach cramps
  • Rectal irritation


If you experience any side effects, including any not included in the patient information leaflet, you can report them using the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme.
