My gastro doctor wanted to prescribe it first but I told him I have a hard time with "reaching" that area so he thought suppositories would be better. However, Canasa did not seem to help much or go up far enough so I am now using Proctofoam which is mostly prescribed for hemmroids I understand. Seems to be working slowly - but working to heal ulcers and cut down on bleeding.
Sometimes I can only get about 1/2 to remain in as I have to do it on the toilet and moving around I know some comes out. My directions were to ly still for about 30 minutes so I do it before I go to bed.
