Using Peristeen® daily or every other day, as recommended by your doctor or nurse, helps prevent bowel leakage and constipation. This means that you don’t have to worry about leakage and can feel confident to do things you want to do.
Take your time
Using Peristeen will mean having to get used to a new routine, but the effort will pay off. Regular emptying of your bowels can make a big difference to your quality of life.
The three most important things to remember when getting started:
- Use Peristeen regularly. Keep to the plan that your doctor or nurse has recommended. Regular bowel emptying with Peristeen helps prevent leakage and constipation. It can also reduce the time you need to spend taking care of your bowels.
- Find a time when you can empty your bowels without being disturbed or rushed. The exact time that you empty your bowel is not critical, but try to keep to the same each day, so that you get in a regular routine.
- Keep in regular contact with your doctor or nurse during the first few months of using Peristeen. They can help you with any queries you might have and help you adjust your routine if needed. You can also contact Coloplast Customer Care for support.
