Questions about Nifedipine .2 Ointment

Postby Davchun » 17 Apr 2016, 07:34

I have a few questions about my Nifedipine Ointment
1. I have to apply to the anal area 3 times a day for 6 weeks. What happens if I miss a dose? Should I just skip it or do I take an extra as soon as possible the next day?
2. How much should I use, and how far up do I have to go?
3. Should I take it before or after a bowel movement, and if I have one right after applying medication, should I reapply?

I wouldn't worry if you miss a dose... Just apply when you remember. As long as you do am and pm then I think you can't go far wrong.
I would use a pea sized amount. It's up to you if you want to try and insert your finger a little to get the cream up there or just apply on the outside. The cream will get absorbed which ever way you do.

I would apply it after you have cleaned up after a bm.... How ever many times that is.

Hope that has answered some of your questions.
