Frequently Asked Questions

This can vary from person to person. Some individuals will experience immediate results, where others may go through an acclimation period for the body to adjust to a different process. This can range anywhere from 3-10 bowel care sessions.
With consistent use of Enemeez® you should be spending less time doing your bowel program. Most will experience an evacuation in 15 minutes or less.
The Enemeez® formulation is one of the least invasive bowel care products on the market. It does not irritate the mucosal lining to provide an evacuation. Instead it draws water from surrounding tissues, incorporates the water into the stool, softening the stool, initiating a replicated “Natural” evacuation.
Enemeez® will not produce a mucosal discharge, as the formulation incorporates itself into the stool, so when the evacuation occurs, the product is eliminated as well. Many using suppositories experience a mucosal discharge due to the suppository itself. The residual of the suppository is left behind which typically will set an individual up for one of two things—Either an episode of incontinence or a mucosal discharge from the suppository 2-4 hours after a bowel care session.
Many patients still perform digital stimulation. However, you may notice that you have reduced the amount of digital stimulation required.
When beginning use of Enemeez®, you may go through an acclimation period to re-adjust your body to a more “Natural” process. If after 15-20 minutes you have not experienced an evacuation, try digital stimulation to see if you can help bring the stool down. If still no evacuation, insert a second Enemeez® mini enema. This process can be completed up to three times during a bowel care session or per day.
The only difference between the two products is that Enemeez® Plus contains the addition of 20mg of Benzocaine to help relieve symptoms of Autonomic Dysreflexia or pain while producing a bowel movement.
