Prednisolone rectal drug information

Medication Information: In inflammatory bowel conditions such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, inflammation develops in the wall of the gastrointestinal tract. Both of these conditions can cause inflammation of the lower intestines and rectum. Inflammation in the rectum is called proctitis. Symptoms of a recurrence of inflammation in the rectum include bleeding and a frequent need to go to the bathroom. Anal corticosteroids may be prescribed to treat these conditions. Rectal prednisolone is available in the form of an enema or suppository.

Prednisolone is a corticosteroid drug, also called a steroid, that reduces the symptoms of inflammation. If you need more information about prednisolone, prednisolone ear drops and prednisolone eye drops, refer to the relevant page.

Possible side effects of prednisolone rectum

Prednisolone is absorbed rectally through the rectum and has side effects similar to oral steroids. However, due to less anal absorption through the anus, its side effects are also less than oral steroids.

Children are prone to the side effects of corticosteroids. The main concern is when a child needs frequent use of prednisolone rectum for treatment, as rectal prednisolone may affect his growth. In such cases, the child should be under the supervision of a doctor.
