Cortenema Description

Your doctor may recommend a prescription to buy Cortenema to help treat ulcerative colitis or ulcerative proctitis and provide you with relief from the abdominal and rectal pain, bloody diarrhea, weight loss, and fever. Cortenema is not a cure for ulcerative colitis (UC) and it may take from two to three weeks to two to three months before you notice a marked improvement or remission.

Cortenema contains hydrocortisone, which is similar to a naturally produced hormone called cortisol that your body makes daily in order to help you deal with stress by shutting down unnecessary functions, including suppressing the production of inflammatory chemicals.

Reduce Inflammation and Other Symptoms of Ulcerative Colitis

Cortenema is sold as a package of seven single-use 60ml bottles with 100mg of hydrocortisone in each for a total of 420ml. Once you are in position as suggested by your doctor or package directions, insert the special applicator tip of one of the bottles of Cortenema into your rectum, gently squeeze the bottle until empty, and hold for at least thirty minutes or all night if possible.

The steroid then goes to work by interfering with the processes in your body that make the chemicals responsible for your inflammatory response. Cortenema also decreases the activity of your immune system by affecting your white blood cells that can damage healthy tissues in your body when you have an autoimmune disease such as UC.

Conditions Treated by Cortenema

Your doctor can also prescribe Cortenema to treat ulcerative proctitis, the mild form of ulcerative colitis that is limited to the rectal area. UC is believed to be an autoimmune disease that causes your immune system to malfunction and send misguided signals to certain chemicals in your body to attack the healthy cells.

As Cortenema works to suppress the immune response, the inflammation and other symptoms of UC are diminished and you can begin to heal and enjoy being able to travel, socialize, work, or go to school without the pain and inconvenience of UC.

Before You Use Cortenema

Ask your doctor if Hydrocortisone Enema could be harmful to use if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions and allergies you have with your doctor and list any OTC or Rx meds you are on, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements, so it can be determined if Cortenema is the right medicine for you.

Cortenema Precautions and Recommendations

If you are scheduled to undergo any dental or medical procedures, tell the dentist or doctor that you are using Cortenema so your immune system is suppressed. Talk to your doctor before you consider having any live vaccinations due to their efficacy on an immunocompromised person. Precautions such as these are usually meant for those undergoing treatments lasting longer than 21 days. Diabetics should monitor their blood glucose regularly while using Cortenema as it may affect your blood glucose levels.
