ANUCORT (HYDROCORTISONE) | Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation

Dear @[email protected],

Your doctor has discussed the following medication with you: Anucort. Here is some additional information. Let us know if you have any questions regarding this information.

  • This medication belongs to a class of drugs called corticosteroids.

  • Corticosteroids (commonly referred to as steroids) are powerful and fast-acting medications that help reduce irritation and swelling (inflammation) in the intestines and throughout the body, including joints, skin, and eyes.

  • This medication is given as a suppository to reduce inflammation in the rectum, or the last part of large intestine.

  • You should notice an improvement of symptoms within days of starting this medication.

  • While steroids can be used for weeks or months, they should only be used for short periods of time because of their side effects. Steroids can be used to get you well in the short term, but should never be used over a long period of time

  • Because this medication is a suppository, the likelihood that it will be absorbed into the bloodstream is very low, but possible. Side effects can include minor infections like yeast infections (in the mouth or female reproductive organs) or urinary tract infections, serious infections, high blood pressure, high blood sugar levels, weight gain, stretch marks, acne, rounding of the face (“moon face”), facial hair, difficulty sleeping, mood swings, and psychiatric symptoms. These side effects will usually go away when the medication is stopped. Long-term use of steroids can result in a weakening of the bones (osteoporosis) and cataracts.

  • Long-term use can result in damage and irritation of the skin of the anus.

  • Before taking this medication, let your doctor know about other medical conditions that you may have or other medications (even over-the-counter medications or alternative therapies) you may be taking.

  • The best way to control your disease is by taking your medication as directed. Even when you do not have any symptoms, it is very important to continue taking your medication to prevent your disease from becoming active again. Do not alter the amount of the medication or how frequently you take it without speaking to your doctor first.

  • If you have any side effects or you continue to have symptoms, speak to your doctor immediately.

  • If you have an allergy to this medication or other corticosteroids, do not take this medication without speaking to your doctor first.

Hydrocortisone Rectal: MedlinePlus Drug Information

Hydrocortisone rectal comes as a cream, an enema, suppositories, and a foam to use in the rectum. Follow the directions on your prescription or your product label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Use rectal hydrocortisone exactly as directed. Do not use it more or less of it or use it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

For proctitis, hydrocortisone rectal foam usually is used one or two times a day for 2 to 3 weeks, then if necessary, every other day until your condition improves. Hydrocortisone rectal suppositories usually are used two or three times daily for 2 weeks; may require treatment for up to 6 to 8 weeks in severe cases. Proctitis symptoms may improve within 5 to 7 days.

For hemorrhoids, hydrocortisone rectal cream usually is used in adults and children 12 years and older up to 3 or 4 times daily. If you obtained hydrocortisone without a prescription (over the counter) and your condition does not improve within 7 days, stop using it and call your doctor. Do not put the cream into your rectum with your fingers.

For ulcerative colitis, hydrocortisone rectal enema usually is used every night for 21 days. Although colitis symptoms may improve within 3 to 5 days, 2 to 3 months of regular enema use may be required. Call your doctor if your colitis symptoms do not improve within 2 or 3 weeks.

Your doctor may change your dose of rectal hydrocortisone during your treatment to be sure that you are always using the lowest dose that works for you. Your doctor may also need to change your dose if you experience unusual stress on your body such as surgery, illness, or infection. Tell your doctor if your symptoms improve or get worse or if you get sick or have any changes in your health during your treatment.

Hydrocortisone rectal suppositories may stain clothing and other fabrics. Take precautions to prevent staining when you use this medication.

Before using hydrocortisone rectal foam the first time, carefully read the written instructions that come with it. Ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand.

If using a hydrocortisone rectal enema, follow these steps:

  1. Try to have a bowel movement. The medication will work best if your bowels are empty.
  2. Shake the enema bottle well to make sure the medication is mixed.
  3. Remove the protective cover from the applicator tip. Be careful to hold the bottle by the neck so that the medication will not leak out of the bottle.
  4. Lie down on your left side with your lower (left) leg straight and your right leg bent toward your chest for balance. You can also kneel on a bed, resting your upper chest and one arm on the bed.
  5. Gently insert the applicator tip into your rectum, pointing it slightly toward your navel (belly button).
  6. Hold the bottle firmly and tilt it slightly so that the nozzle is aimed toward your back. Squeeze the bottle slowly and steadily to release the medicine.
  7. Withdraw the applicator. Remain in the same position for at least 30 minutes. Try to keep the medicine inside of your body all night (while you sleep).
  8. Wash your hands thoroughly. Throw away the bottle in a trash can that is out of the reach of children and pets. Each bottle contains only one dose and should not be reused.

    Rosuvastatin is a selective, competitive inhibitor of HMG-CoA reductase, an enzyme that converts 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A into mevalonate, a cholesterol precursor.Rosuvastatin acts on the liver, where cholesterol (CS) synthesis and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) catabolism are carried out.

    Rosuvastatin increases the number of LDL receptors on the surface of hepatocytes, which increase the uptake and catabolism of LDL, and inhibits the synthesis of very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) by the liver, thereby reducing the amount of LDL and VLDL.

    Rosuvastatin reduces the concentration of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), total cholesterol, triglycerides (TG), increases the concentration of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), and also reduces the concentration of apolipoprotein B (ApoV), cholesterol-non-LDL Cholesterol-VLDL, TG-VLDL and increases the concentration of apolipoprotein A-1 (ApoA-1) (see.Table 1), reduces the ratio of cholesterol-LDL / cholesterol-HDL, total cholesterol / HDL cholesterol and cholesterol-non-HDL / HDL cholesterol and the ratio of ApoV / ApoA-1.

    After the start of rosuvastatin therapy, the therapeutic effect appears within one week, after 2 weeks of treatment it reaches 90% of the maximum possible effect. The maximum therapeutic effect is usually achieved by 4 weeks and is maintained with regular administration of the drug.

    Clinical efficacy

    Rosuvastatin is effective in adult patients with hypercholesterolemia, with or without hypertriglyceridemia, regardless of race, gender or age, including patients with diabetes mellitus and familial hypercholesterolemia.

    In 80% of patients with hypercholesterolemia IIa and IIb types according to the Fredrickson classification (average initial concentration of LDL-C is about 4.8 mmol / L) when using rosuvastatin at a dose of 10 mg, the concentration of LDL-C reaches values ​​less than 3 mmol / L.

    In patients with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, who took rosuvastatin in doses from 20 to 80 mg according to the forced dose titration scheme, there was a positive dynamics of lipid profile parameters. After titration of the daily dose to 40 mg per day (12 weeks of therapy), the concentration of LDL-C decreased by 53%.In 33% of patients, a decrease in the concentration of LDL-C less than 3 mmol / l was achieved.

    In patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, who took rosuvastatin at doses of 20 and 40 mg, the average decrease in the concentration of LDL-C was 22%.

    An additive effect is observed in combination with fenofibrate in relation to the concentration of TG and with nicotinic acid (more than 1 g per day) in relation to the concentration of HDL-C.

    In patients with a low risk of developing coronary heart disease (CHD) (risk on the Framingham scale less than 10% over a period of more than 10 years), with an average LDL-C concentration of 4.0 mmol / L (154.5 mg / dL) and subclinical atherosclerosis, which was assessed by the thickness of the intima-media complex of the carotid arteries (TCIM), rosuvastatin at a dose of 40 mg / day significantly slowed down the rate of progression of the maximum TCIM for 12 segments of the carotid artery compared with placebo at a rate of 0.0145 mm / year (95% confidence interval (CI): from -0.0196 to – 0.0093, at p <0.0001).A dose of 40 mg should be prescribed only to patients with severe hypercholesterolemia and a high risk of developing cardiovascular diseases.

    Pharmacokinetics

    Absorption

    The maximum concentration (C max ) of rosuvastatin in blood plasma is reached approximately 5 hours after oral administration. Absolute bioavailability is ≈ 20%.

    Distribution

    Rosuvastatin is metabolized primarily by the liver, which is the main site of cholesterol synthesis and LDL-C metabolism.The volume of distribution of rosuvastatin is approximately 134 liters. About 90% of rosuvastatin binds to plasma proteins, mainly albumin.

    Metabolism

    A limited amount of rosuvastatin (approximately 10%) undergoes biotransformation.

    The metabolism of rosuvastatin is to a small extent associated with isoenzymes of the cytochrome P450 system. The isoenzyme CYP2C9 is the main isoenzyme involved in the metabolism of rosuvastatin, while the isoenzymes CYP2C19, CYP3A4 and CYP2D6 are involved in metabolism to a lesser extent.

    The main metabolites of rosuvastatin identified are N-dismethylrosuvastatin and lactone metabolites.

    N-desmethylrosuvastatin is approximately 50% less active than rosuvastatin, lactone metabolites are pharmacologically inactive. More than 90% of the pharmacological activity in inhibiting circulating HMG-CoA reductase is provided by rosuvastatin, the rest is provided by its metabolites.

    Withdrawal

    Approximately 90% of the taken dose of rosuvastatin is excreted unchanged through the intestines (including absorbed and unabsorbed rosuvastatin), the remainder is excreted by the kidneys.About 5% of the administered dose of the drug is excreted unchanged by the kidneys. The half-life (T 1/2 ) is 19 hours, it does not change with an increase in the dose of the drug. The geometric mean plasma clearance is approximately 50 l / h (coefficient of variation 21.7%). As in the case of other inhibitors of HMG-CoA reductase, the membrane transporter of cholesterol across membranes is involved in the process of hepatic uptake of rosuvastatin. This carrier plays an important role in the excretion of rosuvastatin by the liver.

    Linearity

    The systemic exposure of rosuvastatin increases in proportion to the dose. After repeated daily administration of the drug, no changes in pharmacokinetic parameters occur.

    Genetic polymorphism

    Inhibitors of MMC-CoA reductase, including rosuvastatin, bind to transport proteins OATP1B1 (organic anion transport polypeptide involved in the capture of statins by hepatocytes) and BCRP (efflux transporter).Carriers of genotypes SLCO1B1 (OATP1B1) C.521CC and ABCG2 (BCRP) C.421AA showed an increase in exposure (AUC – area under the concentration-time curve) of rosuvastatin by 1.6 and 2.4 times, respectively, compared with carriers genotypes SLCO1B1c.521TT and ABCG2 c.421AA.

    Special patient populations

    Age and gender

    Age and sex do not have a clinically significant effect on the pharmacokinetic parameters of rosuvastatin.

    Ethnic groups

    Pharmacological studies have shown an approximately twofold increase in the median AUC and C max rosuvastatin in patients of the Mongoloid race (Japanese, Chinese, Filipinos, Vietnamese and Koreans) compared with those of the Caucasian race; in Indian patients, an increase in the median AUC and C max by approximately 1.3 times is shown. At the same time, the analysis of pharmacokinetic parameters for the entire study population did not reveal clinically significant differences in the pharmacokinetics of the drug among representatives of the Caucasian and Negroid races.

    Renal failure

    In patients with mild to moderate renal insufficiency, the plasma concentration of rosuvastatin or N-desmethylrosuvastatin does not change significantly. In patients with severe renal failure (creatinine clearance (CC) less than 30 ml / min), the concentration of rosuvastatin in the blood plasma is 3 times higher, and the concentration of N-desmethylrosuvastatin is 9 times higher than in healthy volunteers. The plasma concentration of rosuvastatin in hemodialysis patients is approximately 50% higher than in healthy volunteers.

    Liver failure

    patients with varying degrees of liver failure with a score of 7 and below on the Child-Pugh scale did not reveal an increase in T 1/2 rosuvastatin.
