Customer Questions and Answers:
Q1.How long will it take to work?
- 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.
Q2.Will it cut my timing down?
- Yes. 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.
Q3. Will it irritate me?
- No. 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, initiating the most “Normal” or “Natural” evacuation.
Q4. Will I get mucosal discharge?
- 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 who are 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.
Q5. What happens if it does not work?
- 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.
Q6. What’s the difference between the plus and regular?
- 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.
Q7. Will I get addicted to it?
- No. Enemeez is non-habit forming.
Q8. Will I need to still do Digital Stimulation?
- Yes. However, you may notice that you have reduced the amount of digital stimulation required.
Q9. I don’t have a Spinal Cord Injury. Can I still use Enemeez?
- Yes. Enemeez may be used for occasional constipation.
Q10. Can Enemeez be used for children?
- Yes. The recommended age is 12 years and older unless otherwise directed by your doctor.
- For Children under 12 please consult a physician.
