As for adults
Children: Not recommended.
ADMINISTRATION:
1. Avoid handling the suppository for too long because it will melt.
2. Unwrap the suppository. You may moisten the tip with a few drops of water.
3. Lie down on your left side with your right knee bent. Gently push the suppository, pointed end first, into the rectum with your finger, deep enough so it does not slide back out. Remain lying down for a few minutes.
4. Avoid having a bowel movement for at least 1 hour so the medication will have time to work.
5. Wash your hands after each use. Note that this medication may stain fabric.
6. Use this medication regularly as prescribed to get the most benefit from it.

Contraindications:
Hypersensitivity to the active substance(s) or to any of the excipient.
Tubercular, fungal and most viral lesions including herpes simplex, vaccinia and varicella.
Do not use in pregnancy or breast-feeding.

Precautions:
Patients with rectal bleeding or blood in the stool should talk to their doctor before using this product as these conditions may be the symptom of a more serious underlying disorder.
As with all products containing topical steroids, the possibility of systemic absorption should be borne in mind.
Prolonged or excessive use may produce systemic corticosteroid effects, and use for periods longer than seven days is not recommended. Do not use for more than 7 days unless under the direction of a doctor.
The product should be discontinued and the patient advised to consult a medical practitioner if symptoms do not improve or worsen or if rectal bleeding occurs.

Visual disturbance
Visual disturbance may be reported with systemic and topical corticosteroid use. If a patient presents with symptoms such as blurred vision or other visual disturbances, the patient should be considered for referral to an ophthalmologist for evaluation of possible causes which may include cataract, glaucoma or rare diseases such as central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) which have been reported after use of systemic and topical corticosteroids.
