How to buy Proctosedyl online?

Proctosedyl is effective at alleviating the symptoms haemorrhoids (piles) can cause as well as quickening the duration of the condition. Symptoms that piles can cause, and Proctosedyl can ease, include inflammation and redness, itching and irritation that can distract you from your daily routine and even cause pain, especially when not treated. At OnlineClinic, Proctosedyl is available in both an ointment and suppositories depending on your preference. In the ointment, the dosage you can buy is 30g and in the suppositories, it is a dosage of 5mg.

You can order either a 12 pack of suppositories or one pack of ointment here after completing a quick consultation that is mandatory for anyone in the UK looking to buy prescription medication. Once completed, your order will be processed in our UK registered pharmacy ready for dispatch. As the symptoms of haemorrhoids can be discomforting and sometimes painful, when ordered before 4.30pm, you will receive your Proctosedyl treatment the very next day. We don't believe in hidden fees so our standard Royal Mail delivery service is free of charge.

What is Proctosedyl?

Proctosedyl ointment and suppositories are successfully used to treat the symptoms of haemorrhoids to alleviate discomforting symptoms and shorten the timeframe in which you experience irritation and inflammation. When applied directly to the area in question, Proctosedyl has a near immediate effect in soothing redness and pain by targeting the specific zone that is causing the trouble. The result not only means these symptoms ease, but the duration is significantly lessened.

Containing two main active ingredients, the varying dosages of 5mg and 30g means Proctosedyl is highly tolerable with ease of application in both an ointment and suppository format.

Short facts about Proctosedyl
How to use

After buying Proctosedyl, the ointment and suppositories are applied twice a day for 7 days. If the symptoms haven't improved in this time, please contact your doctor for further advise.

How it works

Proctosedyl has both a steroid (hydrocortisone) and a local anaesthetic (cinchocaine hydrochloride) to stop the spread of infection and inflammation, and to numb any pain and discomfort.


Proctosedyl is available to buy in a dosage of 30g whilst a pack of 12 suppositories can be bought from OnlineClinic in a dosage of 5g.

Side effects

Side effects of Proctosedyl include irritation or tingling sensation of the area where you applied the solution, however this tends to subside quickly, or you may not experience any side effects at all.

How does Proctosedyl work?

The two active ingredients in Proctosedyl are cinchocaine hydrochloride and hydrocortisone that work to numb the area and avoid further inflammation and symptoms. The cinchocaine element of the medication is also referred to as a local anaesthetic. This is the ingredient that can provide near instant relief against itching and pain. The hydrocortisone ingredient is a steroid that significantly reduces inflammation, stopping the haemorrhoid outbreak from spreading further and speeds up your recovery time.

Using this dual method of treatment not only means symptoms and timeframe are lessened, but allows your body to combat the condition itself.

How to use Proctosedyl?

Whilst Proctosedyl is available in two formats – suppositories and ointment – both are applied in the same way (to cover the inflammation). The one main difference between both is that Proctosedyl ointment is typically used for external piles (inserted into the rectum) whilst suppositories can be used for internal piles. Both are equally effective when used correctly:

  • Both the ointment and suppositories should be applied directly to the inflammation
  • Make sure your hand are dry and clean
  • Make sure the infected area is clean and dry (pat down to avoid further irritation)
  • Preferably used twice a day (once in the morning and once in the evening)
  • Most people use Proctosedyl after a bowel movement

Proctosedyl should be used twice every day for seven days. It is not advised to continue using Proctosedyl so if you don't see symptoms improving, contact your doctor for further information.

We have attached the full patient leaflet that is included with all Proctosedyl medication for you to read through before purchasing.


Dosages vary depending on whether you want the suppositories or ointment. As the suppositories are often used internally, the dosage is smaller to avoid side effects yet is more concentrated as each pack is specifically measured; each pack of suppository contains 5mg. The ointment for external haemorrhoids (haemorrhoids you can see) is higher at 30g. Both are available to buy at OnlineClinic.

Side effects and precautions

Proven to be highly effective with the minimal risk of side effects[1], but also due to the fact that haemorrhoid medication is not ingested orally. Some people find there is irritation on the area applied, and possibly a tingling sensation, however this shouldn't cause any additional discomfort. It is also advised to apply sparingly and clean the surrounding area afterwards. With suppositories, the correct dosage is already measured to avoid overuse.

There are some precautions to consider before buying Proctosedyl. These include if you are, have or have had:

  • An infection around the same area
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Irritated or broken skin around the same area
  • Severe bleeding from the anus
  • Experiencing severe pain

If you are allergic to any of the ingredients in Proctosedyl or have to use the ointment for over seven days, you must first contact your doctor to arrange a suitable alternative.
