Cortenema is a part of a drug class called glucocorticoids and is made up of hydrocortisone. This drug is taken rectally and can be purchased in 7 x 60ml bottles.

Cortenema is used for the treatment of symptoms caused by an intestinal problem called ulcerative colitis. This condition causes ulcers in your large intestine and produces pus and mucous, which result in abdominal pain and a constant need to empty your bowels (which often times consists of diarrhea and bloody stools).  This disease is hereditary and is seen often in people of Jewish decent; however this disease can happen to anyone.

Hydrocortisone works to treat this condition by reducing the amount of swelling (inflammation) in the rectum and colon.

Always follow directions given to you by your health care professionals.

  1. Shake the bottle well before use.
  2. Lie on your left side.
  3. Bend your right knee towards the chest.
  4. Gently insert the tip of the application into the rectum.
  5. Firmly (but gently) squeeze the bottle so that all of the drug is dispensed into the rectum.

Ensure you tell your doctor about all medications you are currently taking including prescription, over-the-counter, vitamins, and herbal remedies. Also be sure to mention any drug allergies you may have.

You should also inform your dentist, nurse, and other health care professionals, such as anyone about to perform surgery on you, that you are on this medication.

Consult your doctor before you use other medical products on your skin while on Cortenema.

Do not put this solution on open wounds or into your body through your mouth.
