Patient Reviews: How Scheriproct Has Made a Difference

What is Scheriproct?

Scheriproct is a prescription treatment for haemorrhoids. It contains an anti-inflammatory and a local anaesthetic.

The anti-inflammatory acts upon the swollen piles themselves, shrinking them over time.

The local anaesthetic numbs the affected area, bringing quick relief from pain and irritation.

You can get Scheriproct in two formulations: an ointment or suppositories.

Scheriproct ointment can be used for external or internal piles, using the provided applicator nozzle.

Scheriproct suppositories are intended exclusively for internal haemorrhoids.

If you are not sure which treatment is suitable for you, our online doctors are on hand to assist you with any questions you might have about your treatment.

What are haemorrhoids?

Haemorrhoids, also known as piles, are lumps that appear in and around the anus. While they can clear up on their own within a few days, there are various medicines available to treat them, such as Scheriproct.

Symptoms of piles include:

  • Bright red blood after passing stools
  • Itching around the anus
  • Feeling like you still need to after passing stools
  • Mucus in your underwear or on toilet paper after wiping your back passage
  • Lumps around the anus
  • Pain around the anus

If you are unsure whether you have haemorrhoids, or if you are experiencing such symptoms for the first time, it is best to speak to your doctor before you buy Scheriproct online.

If you experience severe bleeding (your bleeding doesn't stop or the toilet water turns red), or if you are in severe pain, dial 999 or go straight to A&E.

What causes haemorrhoids?

Piles develop when varicose veins dilate, creating blood-filled swellings in and around the back passage. They usually occur just inside the anal passage but can protrude or distend downwards.

Haemorrhoids can develop at any age. However, there are several factors that may increase your risk of piles, such as:

  • Pregnancy
  • Frequent or chronic constipation
  • Lifting heavy objects
  • Sitting for a long time
  • Age
  • Having a family history of haemorrhoids

You should discuss your haemorrhoids with your doctor to determine a possible cause.

Your doctor will be able to offer practical advice on reducing your risk of developing piles in the future.

They may also be able to suggest things you shouldn't do while you have piles.

What variations of Scheriproct are available?

Scheriproct is available as an ointment or suppository from our online pharmacy.

The ointment is used for both internal external piles, while Scheriproct suppositories are reserved for internal piles only.

You can get a private prescription for Scheriproct ointment or suppositories with confidence from our online prescription service. We make ordering haemorrhoid treatment online fast and convenient.

How does Scheriproct work?

Scheriproct contains two ingredients, which work together to provide relief and clear up the symptoms of haemorrhoids.

Prednisolone is a corticosteroid that is widely used to treat inflammation. It reduces redness, swelling and inflammation in and around the anus.

Cinchocaine is a local topical anaesthetic. It causes numbness to the area it is applied to by blocking nerve signals.

How long does Scheriproct take to work?

Scheriproct is usually prescribed for a week, after which your condition should improve.

If your symptoms do not improve after 7 days of using Scheriproct, inform your doctor.

How to take Scheriproct?

Before using Scheriproct ointment or suppositories, make sure you wash your hands and the area of application.

How to use Scheriproct suppositories?

For Scheriproct suppositories, insert one suppository into your rectum three times daily, after a bowel movement.

Important: Remember to remove the protective foil from the suppository before insertion.

1. Start by washing your hands with warm water and soap.

2. If the suppository is soft, you can run it under some cold water while it is still in the foil to firm it up. Once the suppository is firm, remove the protective foil.

3. Get into a comfortable position by either standing, or lying on your side.

4. Raise one knee to make insertion easier. If you are standing, you can raise on foot on a chair to help keep your balance.

5. Insert the suppository a half to 1 inch (about 2 and a half centimetres) into your anus.

6. Wash your hands with warm soapy water after inserting the suppository.

How to use Scheriproct ointment?

For use of the ointment on external haemorrhoids, apply a small amount of the ointment to your fingertip and apply as a thin layer to the affected area.

To use the ointment on internal haemorrhoids, use the provided applicator nozzle attachment. Insert the nozzle into the back passage and gently squeeze the tube as you pull the nozzle out.

After using Scheriproct ointment, wash your hands. If you used the nozzle attachment for internal haemorrhoids, wash the nozzle as instructed in the patient information leaflet supplied with your medicine.

Store Scheriproct in a safe place out of the sight and reach of children and pets.

What should I do if I miss a dose of Scheriproct?

If you miss a dose of Scheriproct, use it as soon as you remember.

If it is near the time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your normal regimen.

Do not use more Scheriproct to make up for a missed dose.

What should I do if I use more Scheriproct than I should?

If you accidentally use more Scheriproct than you should, or if you use Scheriproct for longer than 7 days, inform your doctor.

Scheriproct side effects and cautions

All medicines carry the risk of side effects, though not everyone experiences them. Understanding the risks associated with your medicine and knowing the signs to look for is important to your health.

You can find the side effects and cautions associated with the use of Scheriproct in the patient information leaflet supplied with your medicine.

You can read the patient information leaflet for Scheriproct Ointment online.

The patient information leaflet for Scheriproct Suppositories is also available to view online.

Possible side effects of Scheriproct include:

  • Skin irritation (caused by castor oil)
  • Thinning of the skin (caused by overuse of the product for a period longer than 7 days)

This is not an exhaustive list of side effects. Further information regarding the safety of Scheriproct can be found in the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine.

If you experience any side effects, whether they are listed above or in the patient information leaflet, inform your doctor or a pharmacist.

What should I do if I experience the signs of an allergic reaction?

Do not use Scheriproct if you are allergic to any of its ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet.

If you experience the signs and symptoms of an allergic reaction, stop using Scheriproct and seek appropriate medical attention.

Signs of an allergic reaction can include:

  • Breathing problems
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Rash
  • Swelling of the face, lips, tongue and throat

How can I stay safe while taking Scheriproct?

Please inform our prescriber of all the medicines you take, including over-the-counter medicines, prescription medicines and health supplements to ensure that Scheriproct is safe for you.

Do not use more than one haemorrhoid medicine at a time.

Always follow the instructions of your doctor when using Scheriproct suppositories or Scheriproct ointment.

Always seek your doctor's advice before you buy Scheriproct online from Prescription Doctor.

Do not use Scheriproct past the expiry date printed on the packaging. The date refers to the last day of the specified month.

Do not dispose of medicines via household or water waste. Take any unwanted or expired medicine to your local pharmacy and ask them to dispose of it safely on your behalf.

Always store Scheriproct ointment and suppositories out of sight and reach from children and pets.

Never share your medicine with anybody else, even if the other person is experiencing the same symptoms as you or has been diagnosed with the same condition.

Frequently asked questions about Scheriproct

If you are pregnant, planning on becoming pregnant or breastfeeding, speak to your doctor before using Scheriproct.

Will Scheriproct affect my ability to drive or operate machinery?
