    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    forgive me because I’m not sure I know what you’re asking, how an enemeez works. Back in better days I would sometimes use a fleet enema sitting on the toilet, and it usually worked within 10 or 15 minutes, sometimes immediately… If memory serves, which is not so reliable these days.

    oops sorry, what I meant is does the saline leak out if you push it in while sitting up?

    My sphincter control is not very affected, so It always stayed in for me until it worked. But it didn’t always work.

    Glycerin might be worth trying. I've been using it for about two years and it has worked well. After trying one of the prepackaged enemas, I found that I could buy a gallon of vegetable based glycerin on Ebay for under $30.00. I reuse an enema bottle and mix half of an ounce to an ounce of glycerin with water. It saves me a little bit of money doing it this way.

    isn't there something damaging about longterm use of the glycerin ones?


    thanks random; and lynnifer though I am curious about monthly costs of it so I can compare w/ enemeez

    I don't know. I haven't noticed anything different since I started using it. I found this article about saline laxatives and enemas. http://www.geripal.org/2012/02/dange...et-enemas.html
