Patient Instructions for Use
When do I apply the ointment?
Apply the ointment every 12 hours exactly as your doctor has told you to.
How do I apply the ointment?
Cover your finger with plastic-wrap, a disposable surgical glove or a finger cot.
Lay the covered finger alongside the 1 inch dosing line marked on the side of the medicine box (see figure below) so that the tip of your finger is at one end of the dosing line. Starting at the tip of the finger, squeeze the ointment onto your finger for the same length marked on the box.
Refer to carton for accurate dosage guide.
Gently insert the finger with the ointment into the anal canal, up to the first finger joint. Carefully smear the ointment around the inner sides of the anal canal. If this cannot be achieved due to pain, application of the ointment should be made directly to the outside of the anus.
What do I do after I have applied the ointment?
Throw away the finger covering in the garbage, out of the reach of children and pets. Wash your hands.
