I've heard of these wipes. Are you experiencing any of the usual Rectogesic side-effects when using the wipes?
I am currently trying the Rectogesic cream. Here is some background on what I have experienced so far:
I am in the USA. I obtained Rectogesic over the internet in 2% formulation at acost of $32 +$7.50 S&H for a 30gram tube. I am not covered by medical insurance and I have a very serious case of bleeding and painful multiple hemorrhoids. I have previously used commercial hemorrhoidal cream and a topical steroid cream in an attempt to reduce the discomfort of this problem.
I have done 3 applications of Rectogesic to-date over two days so far.
My anus has loosened up somewhat and pain is greatly reduced.
Side effects include pressure on left side of my head, dizziness/light-headedness and even a bit of nauseousness. The affects are strongly evident for about
two hours after application, declining in degree over time. I am not liking these effects!
I have also noticed a progressive loosening of my stool. The last movement today was completely loose, like diarrhea. This is not good as diarrhea residue is difficult to clean. I have taken to the using my shower head as a sort of bidet device after a stool movement, but this wouldn't work if I were out of the house.
With these side-effects, I can't see the cream as a long-term solution for this problem for me.
