Suppositories are used for the relief of the discomfort of haemorrhoids (piles) and other painful conditions of the anus (rear end), such as fissures (tears). Haemorrhoids often result when people strain while trying to open their bowel (defecate). This problem is often, but not always, associated with low-fibre diets. Suppositories contain the active ingredients hydrocortisone, a steroid, and cinchocaine hydrochloride, a local anaesthetic. These work together to reduce swelling, numb pain and relieve itching.
hydrocortisone 5 mg and cinchocaine hydrochloride 5 mg per suppository Inactive Ingredients: hard fat PROCTOSEDYL does not contain gluten, sucrose, lactose, tartrazine or any other azo dyes.
Remove the suppository from its packaging. Moisten the suppository by dipping it briefly in cool water. Put one foot on the side of the bath or toilet, raising the knee to the chest.
