What is Scheriproct?

Scheriproct suppositories are a haemorrhoid treatment which contains two active ingredients; prednisolone hexanoate and cinchocaine hydrochloride.

Together, they provide relief from painful haemorrhoids and reduce swelling and inflammation.

What variations of this medicine are available?

This medicine is available as an ointment or suppository.

You can buy Scheriproct with confidence from our convenient online prescription service. We make acquiring haemorrhoid treatment online hassle free.

How does Scheriproct work?

Scheriproct contains two ingredients which work alongside one another to provide relief and clear up the symptoms of haemorrhoids.

Prednisolone is a corticosteroid which inhibits cells from producing inflammatory chemicals. This helps to clear up redness, swelling and inflammation in and around the anus.

Cinchocaine is a local topical anaesthetic. When applied to an affected area, it prevents pain signals being passed along nerves, numbing the area of application for a period of time.

How to take Scheriproct?

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

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

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.

3. Get into a comfortable position 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 Scheriproct suppository a half to 1 inch (about 2 and a half centimetres) into your anus.

6. Wash your hands with warm soapy water.

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 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.

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