Cortifoam (Hydrocortisone)

What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

    Description

    Hemorrhoids are extremely unpleasant and the right OTC hemorrhoid creams work well for many people. For those who don’t get effective hemorrhoid relief, a prescription hemorrhoid reliever is going to be what’s needed. Cortifoam is a good choice as it’s formulated to provide relief from the itching and burning that comes with hemorrhoids as it begins to work quickly. Cortifoam rectal foam may also be used to treat ulcerative colitis, and if you’re wondering how to use Cortifoam, not to worry. It comes with an easy-to-use applicator which is provided.

    You can buy Cortifoam with a prescription at most pharmacies, and you can always buy this product at the best price when you order medication online from Canada Pharmacy.

    Directions

    Use this foam enema for hemorrhoids as instructed:

    Wash your hands before and after using Cortifoam. Emptying your bowel and bladder before using Cortifoam is advisable.

    Take applicator provided and insert it into your rectum and spray foam into the cavity.

    For best results it is recommended that you lie down on your left side for at least 30 minutes after using Cortifoam hemorrhoid foam to allow the liquid to distribute evenly through your intestines. Also try to avoid using the bathroom until the next morning if possible.
