PHOENIX, Feb. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Bowel issues and bathroom patterns can vary greatly depending on the child involved. About one-third of four to seven-year-olds are constipated at any one time.1 DocuSol® Kids (https://docusolkids.com) was developed by a Mom for Moms who need assistance with answers for common constipation issues frequently experienced by their children ages 2-12. DocuSol® Kids is a simple, non-irritating formula that can be used quickly and efficiently.
For children suffering with constipation, the American Academy of Pediatrics2 recommends high-fiber diets, adequate fluids, allowing sufficient time for bowel movements to occur, and supportive, rewards-based encouragement from supervising adults. This is especially important around the holidays, when children are constantly consuming rich, constipating foods.
But for those times that emergency support is needed, stool softeners and gentle mini enemas are sometimes necessary. DocuSol® Kids is the first-of-its-kind stool softener that is used to make bowel movements softer and easier to pass for children. Developed for general constipation, DocuSol® Kids is administered in small amounts (5ml) and is designed for use at home.
Each DocuSol® Kids mini-enema contains a delivered dose of 100mg docusate sodium in a polyethylene glycol base, and is intended for use with children 2-12 years of age (with adult supervision). DocuSol® Kids provides fast and predictable results, typically within 2-15 minutes.3 In addition, DocuSol® Kids:
- Is affordably priced for constipation relief.
- Provides ease of use for both clinicians and parents.
- Uses a non-irritating formula.
- Has an easy, soft flexible tip for rectal use.
- Is a recommended rectal therapy for those children unwilling or unable to swallow medications.
Parents and caregivers can count on DocuSol® Kids for an easy and safe rectal therapy. DocuSol® Kids products can be found on shelves at local retailers such as Rite Aid, HEB, Meijer's and Albertsons. Additional information is available online at: www.DocuSolKids.com.
