In brief: Stimulating ones

Some suppositories soothe inflammation, some lubricate, some stimulate.
Dulcolax is a common stimulating laxative suppository which commonly causes cramps by irritating the rectal lining to stimulate a bm, but others may do this too. Check with your pharmacist or doc if needed.
