Q.

Glycerine suppositories

Dear Doc

Are these habit forming - can a baby become dependant on glycerine suppositories? I guess that what I am asking is whether they are safe?

Thank you.

These suppositories are safe but only use one when needed. In other words do not use the suppositories every day.
