Difference Between Enemas and Suppositories

Although, both enemas and suppositories are used for the same purpose of relieving constipation, there is a marked difference between them.


Enema comes in a liquid form and is injected into the rectum to relieve the symptoms of constipation or to prepare the patient for surgery. The liquid is forced into the rectum with the help of a nozzle that is attached to a plastic or cloth-type bag.


Suppository comes in the form of a small semi-solid or solid plug that is made up of a specific type of medication. The most common among them is made up of glycerin and helps in relieving constipation. Some suppositories also contain stimulant laxatives to induce bowel movements by increasing the muscle contraction. 

Shop Catheters offers a wide assortment of Enema Supplies/Suppositories from various top-selling manufacturers like Bard, Alliance Labs, Medline, C.B. Fleet Company, Covidien, etc.
