Help Avoid Drug Selection Errors With Rectal Suppositories

Rxs for rectal suppositories are causing product mix-ups, administration issues, and storage mishaps.

Product selection. Take care to pick the right product from your computer and pharmacy shelves. Some rectal meds come in multiple dosage forms, strengths, and sizes.

For example, an Rx written for "rectal hydrocortisone" could be for a suppository (Anusol-HC, etc), foam (Cortifoam, etc), ointment (Anugesic-HC, etc), or enema (Cortenema, etc).
