Phoenix — Two new over-the-counter enemas are offering quick constipation relief without having to wait for a hospital visit.
Alliance Labs announced Tuesday that it would be offering hospital-strength mini-enemas DocuSol and DocuSol Plus at Rite Aid pharmacies, as well as on Amazon.com and Drugstore.com.
The two products use an active ingredient that helps the bowel function normally, usually clearing up constipation in two to 15 minutes. DocuSol Plus contains the topical pain reliever benzocaine for those with hemorrhoids.
DocuSol and DocuSol plus will be sold in boxes of five tubes.
