Glycerin suppository is used for the relief of occasional constipation.
Glycerin is a hyperosmotic laxative, given rectally, which usually produces a bowel movement within 15 minutes to 1 hour. Hyperosmotic laxatives encourage bowel movements by drawing water into the bowel from surrounding tissues. This produces a softer stool mass and increases bowel action. These products are used for fast, predictable relief of occasional constipation.
