Do they make these? If so, do they make a generic form?

I think the equivalent would be Canasa suppositories. I could not tolerate them, for me they were like taking a laxative suppository. Some others have had this experience too, but of course, there are always others who can tolerate them. I'm not sure of a generic form.
