What are Proctosedyl suppositories and ointment?

Proctosedyl suppositories and ointment are used to treat hemorrhoids (piles). Hemorrhoids (also spelled haemorrhoids) are swollen blood vessels in the anus. Similarly to Anusol suppositories, Proctosedyl suppositories are inserted into the anus, while the ointment is applied externally.

How does Proctosedyl work?

Proctosedyl ointment and suppositories contain the same active two ingredients, hydrochloride and hydrocortisone. When used either externally or internally these work to reduce the painful swelling and irritation caused by hemorrhoids. Hydrocortisone is a steroid that reduces inflammation, while cinchocaine hydrochloride is a numbing agent that relieves pain and itching.

How do you take Proctosedyl suppositories and ointment?

Proctosedyl Suppository

 

Insert one suppository in the morning, evening and after each bowel movement. Wash your hands before and after inserting the suppository. Do not use for longer than seven days.

 

Proctosedyl Ointment

 

Wash your hands before and after each application. Gently rub a small layer of ointment over the affected area. For internal application, screw the plastic nozzle on the tube. Insert the tube in your anus and gently squeeze the tube gently as you remove it. Do not move for 1 - 2 minutes. Wash the nozzle after each use.
