 1  Fissure/Hemmerhoid SEVERE abdominal cramping. While it eased the pain of the fissure and the hemmerhoid a side effect I suffered was headaches, diarrhea, severe cramping passing wind and stools, along with pains in kidney area. I'm guessing I'm in the 30% that suffers severe side effects. I'll be sticking with standard Anusol from here on in which has worked wonders for me in the past. My advice, try one suppository over a 24 hour period and reevaluate, if you don't suffer from the side effects listed above carry on. Otherwise stick to standard Anusol. M 38 3 days

 1  Painful Hemorrhoids Abdominal cramping with SEVERE watery diarrhea--which I've learned is a known side effect to steroids. Abdomen became bloated and uncomfortably very distended after first dosage. Yet I didn't connect it to the suppository until the second dose, unfortunately. Hours and hours of watery diarrhea, cramping, bloating, nausea and headache/malaise kept me up all night, running to the bathroom--all night long. A very, very unpleasant experience, which I will never repeat. I wish I had known how much of the steroid is absorbed into the bloodstream by this suppository (almost 30%). If you are sensitive to oral steroids, as I am, be aware of this fact. I have taken virtually every hemorrhoid suppository and have NEVER had any reaction before this. F 55 1 days

 4  Internal hemmorhoids Slight burning after insertion of Anusol suppository - but this went away in a few minutes. Seems to be shrinking hemmorhoids - more comfortable now - no itch. 41 3 days

 4  Anal Fissure Pain upon insertion of suppository. It's much more comfortable if you coat it with a personal lubricant. It worked fast to reduce inflammation and heal the fissure. M 2 weeks
