Hemorrhoid Compound Medicine
The “rectal rocket” is a unique suppository design for hemorrhoids that competes with traditional suppositories in 3 ways:
- The suppository does not get lost in the rectum but stays at the point of insertion.
- It addresses both internal and external hemorrhoids at the time.
- The patient can pass gas without losing the suppository.
American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP), led by the prudent Dr. Neema Yazdanpanah, provides safe and proven compounding treatments to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and nationwide.
How Does the Rectal Rocket Work?
The rectal rocket has a contoured frontend and flared bottom. This design has two advantages. The suppository’s shape enables it to remain at the point of insertion without getting lost in the rectum. Additionally, the flared bottom stays in constant contact with the outer surface of the anus which helps in the treatment of both external and internal hemorrhoids.
The suppository also has a slit for expelling gas running along its length allowing the patient to pass gas without losing it. These suppositories are used at bedtime, and they offer instant relief from itching and pain.
The design of the Rectal Rocket allows it to stay in constant contact with the external and internal areas of swelling throughout absorption.
Comfort and Effectiveness
A suppository is not a pleasant method of medication for patients. However, patients suffering from hemorrhoids do not have too many options. Rectal rockets provide ideal absorption and more comfort in comparison to traditional suppositories. The “Rectal Ice Rocket” can treat internal as well as external hemorrhoids simultaneously, in as little as 3 uses in a majority of cases.
Better Medication Absorption
The design of the rocket is such that it enables it to remain in constant contact with the anal canal and external perianal region throughout absorption.
Immediate or Extended Release
There can be various formulations of the drug allowing it to be absorbed instantly or over a few hours.
Heal Hemorrhoids in Three Doses, Not 12
Rectal rocket delivers the drug directly to the area of inflammation in internal as well as external hemorrhoids. Traditional suppositories tend to get lost in the rectum. Therefore, they lose direct contact with the hemorrhoids causing external hemorrhoids to be left untreated.
Better Comfort Means Better Compliance
It can be uncomfortable and cumbersome for patients with internal and external hemorrhoids to regularly apply a suppository and cream. The rectal rocket provides extended relief for both of these conditions. The suppository can even heal in a little as 3 doses in the extended release form.
History of Rectal Rocket
Robert Boudreaux, a compounding pharmacist in Lake Charles, Louisiana designed the rectal rocket in the late 1960’s. The very first molds comprised aluminum and only 6 suppositories were created.
These new suppositories, also known as “Robert’s Rocket,” did not get widespread acceptance due to their unusual shape. Then in the 1990’s, PCCA (Professional Compounding Centers of America) remade the mold and started to distribute the new molds to its member pharmacies.
