I have been prescribed a hydromorphone for my pain but I bought a rectal suppository and now I don’t know how to use it or insert it. Is there anybody who could explain this routine to me? Thank you

The rectal suppositories are taken every 6-8 hours. You should remove the wrapper and dip the tip of the suppository in water. Lie down on your left side and raise your right knee to your chest. A left-handed person should do the opposite. Insert the suppository into the rectum with your finger about 1 inch. Hold it there with the finger for a few moments. You should continue lying down for the next 15 mins. Don’t forget to wash your hands thoroughly.
