For best results, sufferers are advised to insert one suppository in the morning, and again last thing at night before bed. Additional suppositories can be inserted after each bowel movement, while Anusol ointment and gels can help further relieve the external effects and symptoms associated with piles.
Suitable for adults and children over the age of 12, these suppositories don’t contain any harmful ingredients, making them suitable for expectant mothers and those who are breastfeeding. For those on any other current medications, or with underlying medical conditions, seeking prior advice from a doctor is advised.
How to use Anusol suppositories:
1. Remove the plastic cover before insertion. Tear along the perforation to remove one suppository from the strip.
2. Grasp the two halves of the plastic cover at the coloured end, holding them firmly between the thumb and forefinger of each hand. Gently pull apart to expose the suppository fully.
Adults : Wash the anal area and dry carefully with a soft towel. Remove the suppository from the plastic cover and insert as deeply into the anus as possible. One suppository should be inserted at night, in the morning, and after each bowel movement until the condition is improved.
Anusol suppositories are specially shaped for easy insertion into the anus. You may find insertion of the suppositories easier if you place one foot on a chair or lie on your side with one leg drawn up as high as possible under the chin.
Anusol suppositories are for insertion into the rectum (back passage) only. Do not swallow them. If you accidentally swallow a suppository, tell your doctor at once.
Children : Not recommended for children.
Haemorrhoids and other anal conditions are sometimes of a serious nature. In cases of rectal bleeding or a condition that persists or worsens consult your doctor.
