Project Description

Green Enema®

Monobasic Sodium Phosphate 19g
Dibasic Sodium Phosphate 7g/118 ml


It acts as a saline laxative when administered by the rectal route. Fluid accumulation in the lower bowel produces distension and promotes peristalsis and bowel movement on the rectum, sigmoid and descending colon resulting in rapid evacuation.


  • It is indicated for the relief of occasional constipation.
  • It is used where bowel cleansing is required, such as before and after lower bowel surgery, delivery and post-partum, before proctoscopy, sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy and before radiological examinations of the lower bowel.
