How to use Anusol-HC Suppository, Rectal

Use this product in the rectum as directed by your doctor, usually 2 or 3 times daily. The dosage and length of treatment are based on your medical condition and response to treatment.

  • Avoid handling the suppository for too long because it will melt. Unwrap the suppository. You may moisten the tip with a few drops of water. Lie down on your left side with your right knee bent. Gently push the suppository, pointed end first, into the rectum with your finger, deep enough so it does not slide back out. Remain lying down for a few minutes. Avoid having a bowel movement for at least 1 hour so the medication will have time to work.

Wash your hands after each use. Note that this medication may stain fabric.

Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve after your prescribed length of treatment or if it worsens
