Glycerin suppositories are used for:

Relieving occasional constipation. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Glycerin suppositories are a hyperosmotic laxative. It works by irritating the lining of the intestine and increasing the amount of fluid, making it easier for stools to pass.

Do NOT use glycerin suppositories if:

  • you are allergic to any ingredient in glycerin suppositories
  • you have a blockage in your digestive system
  • you have undiagnosed abdominal pain

Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.
