Rectal Rockets For Hemorrhoids & After Hemorrhoid Surgery

A golden solution to hemorrhoids patients’ suffering


Hemorrhoids are small veins that have become enlarged and swollen (called “varicose”) around the rectum and anus. The rectum is the final or lowest part of the large bowel and is surrounded by a circle of muscle that stretches and then tightens to force the solid waste products of digestion (feces or bowel movement) down and out through the anus, the small opening through which solid waste passes out of the body. Veins around the rectum and anus often swell and become inflamed, develop small blood clots, and cause minor bleeding. There are two major types of hemorrhoids – external and internal. Many people suffer from both.


External hemorrhoids develop under the skin, just outside the opening of the anus. They may cause pain and itch, especially during a bowel movement, and they are often tender to the touch. They are round, purple, and feel like “soft swellings.”


Internal hemorrhoids are found further up, inside the rectum. Often these hemorrhoids are not painful, and you may not know they are there until they start to bleed. Sometimes these internal hemorrhoids may be pushed out (prolapsed) through the anus. If that happens, they can become quite painful. When blood clots develop inside these enlarged veins, whether external or internal, the doctors say they are “thrombosed” or “thrombotic.” Thrombotic hemorrhoids can cause bleeding and pain that gets worse with irritation or increased pressure (coughing or straining, for example).

What are Rectal Rockets suppositories?

As their name implies, Rectal rockets have a rocket-like shape, as seen in the image below. Rectal rocket suppositories have flared bottoms to help them stay in place and are tapered at the top for simple rectum insertion. The rectal rocket is a particular suppository that is not supposed to go all the way into the rectum but rather to hang around there for a little while. 

Along the length of the suppository, there is a slit for gas release, allowing the patient to pass gas without losing it. These suppositories are usually used before bed and provide immediate pain and itch relief.

Why use Compound Medicine for hemorrhoids?

The “rectal rocket” is a custom-made hemorrhoid suppository that differs from conventional suppositories in three ways:
  • Hemorrhoids, both internal and external, are treated simultaneously.
  • Without losing the suppository, the patient is able to pass gas.
  • The suppository does not get lost in the rectum but stays at the insertion point.

How can Rectal Rockets suppositories help me?

Suppositories are not a patient’s favorite kind of medication. On the other hand, patients suffering from hemorrhoids do not have many options.

• Comfort and efficiency: Rectal rockets provide better absorption and comfort than traditional suppositories. In most cases, the “Rectal Ice Rocket” can treat internal and external hemorrhoids simultaneously in as few as three uses.

• Immediate or Extended Release: Rectal rockets provide immediate release of medication to relieve pain instantly—also extended-release of drugs to maintain the healing effect.

• Three Days dosages for healing hemorrhoids instead of 12 days: Rectal rockets deliver drugs directly to the site of inflammation in both internal and external hemorrhoids.

Traditional suppositories frequently become lost in the rectum. As a result, they lose direct contact with the hemorrhoids, leaving external hemorrhoids untreated.

Rectal Rockets suppositories

What medication can be delivered using rectal rockets suppositories?

Rectal rockets can contain one or  a combination of the following medications:

  • Lidocaine
  • Hydrocortisone
  • Misoprostol (Important: this ingredient cannot be used in pregnant women)
  • Sucralfate
  • Nifedipine

How can this medication help in hemorrhoids and anal fissures?

Lidocaine is a topical anesthetic that blocks pain and itching sensations. It is one of the most common treatments for hemorrhoids and can be applied to the affected area as a cream, ointment, or suppository. Lidocaine works by blocking nerve impulses from the nerves in the skin to those in the brain, thereby reducing feelings of pain or itching.

Hydrocortisone is an anti-inflammatory medication that is used to treat a variety of medical conditions. It can be applied topically to the skin, injected into the body, or taken orally. Hydrocortisone has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treating hemorrhoids.

Misoprostol promotes blood flow through the mucosa, which has a cytoprotective effect.

Sucralfateis a drug that contains sucrose and aluminum hydroxide. It works by forming a protective coating on the lining of your digestive tract. This is helpful because if you have hemorrhoids, it can help to reduce pain, itching, and bleeding.

Nifedipine belongs to a class of drugs called calcium channel blockers. These drugs help control blood pressure by relaxing and dilating the blood vessels. Nifedipine works in hemorrhoids by relaxing the anal sphincter muscles, reducing inflammation, pain, and bleeding.
