They are used for the relief of symptoms such as pain and extreme itchiness; the medical prescription may vary according to the degree of the hemorrhoidal disease.

Os hemorrhoid medicines are indicated to improve local circulation and relieve symptoms of pain or burning, bleeding and swelling in the anal region, points out digestive system surgeon Vanessa Prado. The most used are drugs with anti-inflammatory action, which have the diosmin and hesperidin as active principles — but the medical prescription may vary according to the degree of the disease.

In some cases, the doctor may recommend the use of anti-inflammatory or analgesic pills, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen, to reduce local inflammation and relieve pain. For this reason, it is essential that the treatment is guided by an expert. Medicines administered without guidance can worsen the condition and lead to other problems.

“Just by carrying out a proctological examination, carried out by a coloproctologist, it is possible to give an accurate diagnosis to know which is the most indicated treatment”, indicated Maurício Matos, coloproctologist and member of the Brazilian Society of Coloproctology, in a previous interview with MinhaVida.

To better understand the difference between the indications for hemorrhoids, MinhaVida selected the most commonly used oral options in the treatment. Check out!

1. Perivasc

Perivasc is an oral venotonic medication that increases the tone of the veins and the resistance of small blood vessels — decreasing the formation of swelling and improving blood flow in the anal area. Indicated for adult use only, the product is marketed in packages with 500 mg and 1000 mg tablets.

2. Flavonid

Containing diosmin and hesperidin as active ingredients, the flavonoid is normally used in the treatment of functional symptoms related to hemorrhoids, such as pain and extreme itching. The average estimated time for onset of pharmacological action is two hours. The medicine is marketed in packs containing 30 or 60 pills.

3. Venaflon

Like flavonoid and perivasc, venaflon also has diosmin and hesperidin as active principles and is used to alleviate the symptoms of hemorrhoids and hemorrhoidal crises. The drug is sold in packs containing 30 or 60 pills and is indicated for adult use only.

4. Daflon

Daflon is a medication for adult use that, in addition to contributing to the treatment of hemorrhoids, also helps to reduce the amount of bleeding resulting from the postoperative period of hemorrhoidectomy. The product is marketed in packs with coated tablets of 500 mg and 1000 mg.

5. Venalot

Containing coumarin and troxerutin as active ingredients, venalot helps improve venous and lymphatic peripheral circulation — also decreasing swelling caused by hemorrhoidal disease. The extended-release tablets contain 15 mg of coumarin and 90 mg of troxerutin and are sold in packs of 10, 30 or 60 units.

6. Diosmin

Indicated in the treatment of symptoms such as pain, local swelling, burning sensation and bleeding, diosmin acts on the veins of the circulatory system, reducing distensibility and difficulty in blood circulation, improving venous tone. For adult use, the medicine is sold in packs containing 10, 30 or 60 pills.
