Why is Rectiv prescribed?
Nitroglycerin (Rectiv) ointment is prescribed for the treatment of pain due to chronic anal fissure. It usually occurs in infants and is associated with pain and bleeding when passing stool.
What does it do?
An anal fissure is a tear or cut in the lining of the anus that causes pain. It may be caused by constipation, passing stools that are hard or large, diarrhea, anal intercourse, or childbirth. Rectiv belongs to a drug class called vasodilators and it causes dilation of the blood vessels to decrease pain and pressure.
How should I apply it?
Rectiv and its generic equivalents are currently available as a 0.4% ointment. It should only be applied around the anal canal or the outside of the anus.
Use a finger covering such as disposable gloves, a finger cot, or plastic-wrap to apply the ointment and throw it away after use.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only use this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if used properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, apply it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never apply two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before applying Rectiv?
Inform your doctor about all the medications you are taking, your current and previous medical history, and any allergic reactions to Rectiv or any other ingredients included in the manufacture of this medication.
Rectiv may cause drowsiness. Limit alcohol intake and avoid doing activities that require your full attention such as driving or operating machinery until you feel it is safe to do so.
