  • Scheriproct suppositories contains a substance which reduces inflammation (prednisolone) and a local anaesthetic (cinchocaine) which relieves pain. This medicine is used for the relief of the inflammation, swelling, itching and soreness of piles (haemorrhoids) and to relieve itching of the anus (back passage). It is used short-term usually for 5 to 7 days. Scheriproct suppositories and ointments work to relieve the pain and reduce the inflammation from hemorrhoids (piles). The suppositories are to be used internally, and the ointment can be used both internally and externally.

    How to use Scheriproct suppositories

    Always use Scheriproct as directed by your doctor or pharmacist and for no longer than 7 days. Always wash your hands before and after applying Scheriproct. How to use Scheriproct Suppositories: 1. Before you insert a suppository find the small tear in the foil packet and remove the covering foil, by tearing it in half. 2. If the suppositories have become softened, owing to warm temperature, they can be hardened by putting them into cold water before you remove the covering foil. 3. Insert the whole suppository into the anus. 4. To make insertion easier, either stand with one foot raised on a chair or squat down. The usual treatment is one suppository a day, to be inserted preferably after a bowel movement. However, if your discomfort is severe, you should insert one suppository two or three times a day at the start of treatment.

    Do not use Scheriproct Suppositories :

     if you are allergic to prednisolone hexanoate, cinchocaine hydrochloride, other local anaesthetics or any of the other ingredients of this medicine.  if you have a viral infection (e.g. herpes, shingles, chicken-pox)  if you have any bacterial or fungal infections of the skin or elsewhere for which you are not receiving treatment. For troublesome piles you may also want to use Scheriproct ointment for external piles and their symptoms. Available from my pharmacy as well as other treatments.

    Other medicines and Scheriproct

Some medicines may increase the effects of Scheriproct and your doctor may wish to monitor you carefully if you are taking these medicines (including some medicines for HIV: ritonavir, cobicistat).
