    INJECTIONS

    When used daily for cathartic purposes, should be taken at a regular hour, one hour after breakfast being a very suitable time, at a temperature of 85 degrees. If there is particular inactivity of the bowels, the enema may be rendered more efficacious by lying down, having the water slowly injected, and retaining it fifteen or twenty minutes, if necessary, for this purpose pressing externally with a folded towel. Some author has said that it is better to lie upon the right side in taking an injection, and it would seem from the conformation of the intestines, that there might be a reason in this. Where there is obstinate constipation, it is sometimes useful to take a small cold injection, to be retained on going to bed at night.HHTL 87.2
