Wnat To Know More About Anusol Suppositories?

Refer to the instructions given to you by your doctor when you use this product. Also, before starting treatment, take time to read the patient information leaflet that comes with the medication package.

Wash the anal area first and gently dry with a towel. Make sure to wash your hands before taking out the plastic cover from the suppository. Insert into the anus, and secure it enough that it doesn’t fall out. Don’t forget to wash your hands again.

The Anusol suppository simply melts once inserted in the anus. Repeat the same process when administering the next dose. These suppositories are not intended to be taken orally. Never take them by mouth as they are specially designed to be inserted into the rectum.

The usual dose of Anusol HC is one suppository tablet to be inserted to the anus in the morning, at night and after each bowel movement, or as advised by your doctor.

It is not recommended to exceed 3 suppository tablets per day.  Also, you should not use the medication for more than 7 consecutive days unless prescribed by a doctor.

Keeping your stools soft for easy elimination is one of the best ways to prevent haemorrhoids. Other tips for preventing haemorrhoids  and reducing their symptoms include the following:

  • Increase intake of high-fibre foods as this will soften the stool which will help you avoid the straining during elimination. Slowly add fibre to your diet to avoid having stomach gas issues.
  • Drink as much as six to eight glasses of water and other liquids each day to help keep stools soft.
  • Get enough of the recommended amount of fibre which is 20 to 30 grams a day, by considering over-the-counter fibre supplements, such as psyllium (Metamucil) or methylcellulose (Citrucel). This may help improve overall symptoms and bleeding from haemorrhoids. If you use fibre supplements, ensure you drink more fluids or at least eight glasses every day. Otherwise, the supplements can cause or worsen constipation.
  • Don’t push too much when trying to pass stool as it puts a lot of pressure in the veins in the lower rectum.
  • Pass stool as soon as you feel the urge. Holding causes dry, difficult-to-pass stools.
  • Stay active to prevent constipation and decrease the pressure on veins, which can occur with long periods of standing or sitting.
  • Avoid long periods of sitting. Staying seated for too long, especially on the toilet, can raise the pressure on the veins in the anus.
