AdvaCare is a GMP manufacturer of Hemorrhoids ointment.
Hemorrhoids (compound) ointment is used to help heal a long-term (chronic) tear, or fissure, in the anus. An increase in muscle tension, also called resting pressure, in the internal anal sphincter can lead to fissures. Spasms and reduced blood flow to the anus may occur along with the rise in pressure, causing fissures or keeping existing fissures from healing.
Hemorrhoids ointment is usually the first medicine used to treat a chronic anal fissure.
Phenylephrine HCL is used to relieve swelling, burning, pain, and itching caused by hemorrhoids. Phenylephrine belongs to a class of drugs known as sympathomimetic amines. It works by temporarily narrowing the blood vessels in the area. This effect decreases swelling and discomfort.
As with all pharmaceuticals some unwanted effects can occur from the use of hemorrhoids ointment. Always consult a doctor or health care professional for medical advice before use.
Common side effects include: mild pain/stinging, if the rectal tissue is raw or bleeding. Serious side effects may include: fast/irregular heartbeat, pounding headache, nervousness, shakiness (tremor), trouble sleeping.
Seek medical attention if any adverse effects occur.
For a comprehensive list of all possible effects, consult your doctor.
If any symptom persists or gets worse, or you notice any other symptom, then please call your doctor immediately.
