Cortifoam is used to treat a certain intestinal problem known as ulcerative colitis of the rectum, also called ulcerative proctitis. It does not cure this condition but it may relieve rectal pain, diarrhea, and bloody stools caused by swelling (inflammation). Hydrocortisone belongs to a class of drugs called corticosteroids. Cortifoam works by decreasing inflammation directly in the rectum. It is usually used in people who cannot use corticosteroid enemas.
How to Use Cortifoam
Read the directions for use that come with Cortifoam. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Use Cortifoam in the rectum as directed by your doctor, usually once or twice daily for 2 to 3 weeks, then every other day. The dosage and length of treatment are based on your medical condition and response to treatment. To reduce the chance of side effects, your doctor will slowly lower your dose, after you have a positive response to treatment, to the lowest effective dose that controls your symptoms. If you have a worsening of your symptoms, your doctor may need to increase your dose temporarily. Follow your doctor's directions. Do not insert any part of the container into the anus. Use the enclosed applicator to apply Cortifoam. Leave the cap of the container on while using the product. Shake the container well for 5-10 seconds before use and hold upright. Fill the applicator with foam according to the instructions in the package. Gently insert the applicator tip into the anus, and gently push the plunger to apply the foam. Remove the applicator. After inserting the foam, pull the applicator apart and wash all parts with warm water. Rinse the container cap and tip to prevent any blockage. Wash your hands after use. Use Cortifoam regularly as prescribed to get the most benefit from it. It may take 5 to 7 days to notice an improvement. Do not apply large amounts of Cortifoam, use it more often, or use it for longer than prescribed. Your condition will not improve any faster, and your risk of side effects may increase. If you have been using Cortifoam for a long time, do not stop using it without consulting your doctor. Some conditions may become worse when the drug is suddenly stopped. Your dose may need to be gradually decreased. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve after 2-3 weeks of treatment or if it worsens.
