Proctosedyl Dosage

Ointment: For treatment of the outside area of the anus, apply a small quantity to the affected area morning and evening and after each bowel movement. For internal application, attach the rectal cannula (the plastic attachment that is included with the medication) to the tube opening, gently insert to the full extent inside the anus, and squeeze the tube gently from the lower end while withdrawing.

Suppositories: Insert one suppository into the rectum morning and evening and after each bowel movement.

If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Symptoms could include Depression, headache, mood swings, rounding of the face, slow healing of wounds, swelling of the feet or lower legs, trouble sleeping, and unusual hair growth. Check with your doctor as soon as possible if any of these symptoms occur.

Medical treatment: Advise all doctors of the previous use of hydrocortisone.

Pregnancy: Proctosedyl should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Proctosedyl, contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: Proctosedyl may pass into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are using Proctosedyl, it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.
