How to Use Generic Canasa Suppositories

Use Mesacol suppositories (rectal insert) medicine as directed by your doctor.
How to insert Generic Canasa Suppositories:
Wash your hands before and after using the suppositories. If the suppository is too soft to use, put it in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. You may also run cold water over it. Remove the wrapper. Moisten the suppository with cold water. Lie down on your side. Insert the pointed end of the suppository into the rectum. Use your finger to push it in completely.

Do not handle the suppository too much. This will cause the suppository to melt before it can be inserted. For best results, keep the suppository inserted for at least 1 to 3 hours.

Use Mesacol Suppository for the full course of treatment. Keep using it even if you feel better in a few days.
Take a missed dosage as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dosage, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not use 2 doses at once.
