INTRODUCTION

DILGEL contains Diltiazem which belongs to a group of medicines called Calcium channel blockers. DILGEL is used to promote the healing of the tear that has occurred in the skin of the anus (anal fissures) and reduce the symptoms of pain caused by the tear. Anal fissure is a tear in the skin lining the anus characterized by symptoms such as sharp burning pain and bleeding in the anal region.

Diltiazem topical works by relaxing the muscle around the anus (also known as the anal sphincter), thereby reducing the anal pressure, and increasing the blood flow to the area to allow healing to occur. Along with this treatment, your doctor might advise you to increase your daily intake of high-fibre foods in your diet, such as fruit, vegetables and wholegrains, drink plenty of water, and plan daily exercise.

Before applying DILGEL, inform your doctor if you are allergic to Diltiazem or any other calcium channel blockers, and seen with a history of severe anemia, low blood pressure, dehydration, chronic heart failure, cardiomyopathy (hereditary disease of heart muscle that leads to heart failure), recent heart attack, or increased pressure in the brain. Do not use DILGEL while driving or operating heaving machines especially if you have drowsiness, dizziness, light-headedness or blurred vision. If you are a pregnant or breast-feeding women, consult with your doctor for advice before using DILGEL. The most common side effects of applying DILGEL are headache, light-headedness or dizziness, local burning or itching or rectal bleeding. Contact your doctor if any of the symptoms worsen.
