Small difference

If the enema for cleansing the anal canal and the lower rectum both work well. If the purpose is to cure constipation, they work differently, the mineral oil helps the hard stool pass thruough the asus by librication, the saline enema tries to break the stool and liquidate it

Dr. David E. Stein answered:

How is a mineral oil enema different from a Fleet enema?

Simple!

Feces
Enemas are used to help cleanse the rectum and left colon. Mineral oil enemas are simply that - mineral oil in water. It functions to lubricate and stimulate the rectum to help evacuate stool. Fleet's Enemas are made from sodium phosphates, and the salt load stimulates the bowel to secrete fluid causing a diarrhea effect. Fleets are a few ounces as opposed to mineral oil which is 2 quarts.

I took Imodium AD and I am very constipated. I have taken Milk of Magnesia and tried a suppository. no luck. Is a mineral oil enema safe to try ?

?diet

Enema
Imodium was presumably for diarrhea. It works by blocking the normal messages that proceed from the lower brain computer to the bowel. One message orders the bowel to stop peristalsis (wave like bowel action) while the other message causes it to accelerate causing Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Lousy diet is by far the commonest cause, particularly sugar ajnd sweeteners
