Before you use hemorrhoids suppositories that you have just bought from your local pharmacy, here are 6 important points you must take note.
Suitability of Hemorrhoids Suppositories
Always consult your doctor if you are planning to administer it on children below 12 years of age, and on anyone who is on medication (even hemorrhoid medication) or suffering from illnesses like heart diseases, high blood pressure and diabetes. In fact, you will see these warnings on the labels too. This is because the ingredients inside the suppositories may enter your bloodstream through the hemorrhoids, which can easily affect all the aforementioned conditions. Furthermore, the active ingredients inside the suppositories can interact with your medications, and affect their toxicity, which can even surge to the extent of fatal.
Most of them are administered twice to thrice a day, especially once before sleeping, and generally more dosage for severe conditions. But whatever it is, always read the instruction for use because the compositions are designed differently for different brands.
Low Melting Point
When using suppositories, do not hold them in your hands for too long. Insert them into your anus as soon as you remove the wrapper, as they are designed to melt at body temperature.
Always keep your hemorrhoids suppositories refrigerated when not in use. They are very prone to melting.
Wash and disinfect your hands thoroughly first. You don’t want any bacteria from your hands polluting your suppository, and invading your bloodstream! That will result in much worse complications than piles, like septicemia (blood poisoning) which will be difficult to treat and can even be fatal.
And of course, wash and disinfect your hands after administration because rectal bacteria can be poisonous if it infects other vital areas of your body!
Lay down throughout the process of administration so that it can go inside your anus successfully.
Even after you’ve inserted, continue lying down so that it will not drip out, and can reach your hemorrhoids effectively.
Clear your bowels first inserting, and avoid using the toilet, and that includes urinating, for the next 3 hours after inserting! You don’t want to stand up unnecessarily lest the liquid flows out of your anus. But more importantly, you wouldn’t want the feces to rub away the suppositories and render them ineffective.
If you are using hemorrhoids suppositories, always be more cautious as it is a more delicate topical process than swallowing oral drugs. As the drugs are able to enter your bloodstream, it is always important to consult a doctor if you have any doubts.
