MICROLAX® is really easy to use in a squatting position or in your usual position on the toilet. Twist the top of the tube off, and after lubricating the tip with a small drop of the solution, insert the neck fully into the rectum. You will hardly feel the tube as you insert it and this process is completely harmless. Now simply squeeze the entire contents of the tube into the rectum, and keep squeezing the mini-tube as you remove it from the rectum. After use, stand up and lightly tense the cheeks of your bottom to stop the solution from leaking out. Important: Allow the solution to work for approx. 5 minutes to get the best possible effect. After use, dispose of the mini-tube. After only 5-15 minutes, you should have a gentle, normal bowel movement without pain.
