The recommended dose for adults is 1 adult suppository inserted rectally (into the anus).
For children 2 years old and older, the usual dose is 1 child suppository inserted rectally. For children under 2 years old, talk to your doctor. Make sure the suppository stays in the rectum for 15 to 30 minutes so that enough of the medication has been released.
