What is Proctosedyl?


Proctosedyl is a medicine that is used to treat haemorrhoids. It contains three main ingredients: cinchocaine, hydrocortisone and framycetin. Cinchocaine is a local anaesthetic which numbs sensation in the area where the medicine is applied and relieves pain. Hydrocortisone is an anti-inflammatory medicine that reduces swelling, itching and skin redness. Framycetin prevents infection. Together they make a powerful medicine that provides effective relief of the discomfort caused by haemorrhoids and, in addition, speeds up the healing process.

What is it used for?


Proctosedyl is used to treat haemorrhoids. Haemorrhoids develop when increased pressure causes veins in the anal canal to swell or bulge, for example due to straining on the toilet because of constipation, pregnancy, childbirth or old age. They can cause a number of uncomfortable symptoms to develop, including anal itching, pain and, in some cases, blood in the stool. Proctosedyl reduces these symptoms and helps the haemorrhoids to heal faster.

How to use Proctosedyl


Proctosedyl is available in ointment and suppository form. Proctosedyl suppositories are used to treat internal haemorrhoids and should be inserted in the rectum according to the information on the package leaflet.

Proctosedyl ointment should be applied thinly to the affected areas around the anus. If necessary, you can insert the ointment deeper in the rectum using the applicator provided. See package leaflet for more information on how to use the applicator.

Dosage


Unless otherwise prescribed, the usual starting dose for adults is:


  • For Proctosedyl ointment: apply a small amount to and around the haemorrhoids twice a day and after each bowel movement.
  • For Proctosedyl suppositories: insert a suppository in the rectum twice a day and after each bowel movement.



The duration of treatment is decided by the doctor. Always follow the prescription exactly – never apply more or less than the doctor recommends. Proctosedyl is not suitable for use in children.

Side effects


Proctosedyl generally has few side effects, but in rare cases it has been known to cause:


  • Skin rash or irritation due to sensitivity to hydrocortisone, framycetin, cinchocaine or one of the other ingredients.



See package leaflet for more side effects, warnings and contraindications.
