For Anal Fissure and Fistula “I struggled with intense pain and bleeding due to a fissure for several months. Assuming it was hemmorhoids, I tried multiple over the counter medicines, but nothing worked. My OB/Gyn was the one who realized it was a fissure and prescribed Rectiv. The headaches were rough at first, and I almost quit using the ointment because of them. I’m so glad I didn’t, though. Within one week, the headaches were gone, and my fissure symptoms were calming down. By week two, I was totally back to normal–no pain, no bleeding. I continued using it for another week, just to be sure I was completely healed. I’ve been off it for two weeks now, and I’m still symptom-free. I can’t sing the praises of this medicine enough!!”

For Anal Fissure and Fistula “I’ve been on Rectiv for 2 weeks alongside an initial 10-day course of Cipro for a fistula. The Rectiv does cause an immediate headache within minutes of use, but after a few days it goes away, or you get used to it. I did notice relief of pain and swelling for a while until a sudden return of the pain, fistula and swelling! For no apparent reason and after no sudden changes in diet! Seeing my doctor tomorrow to try and determine another angle.”

For Anal Fissure and Fistula “I developed anal fissures after using Invokamet and Invokana. My GI Dr. prescribed Rectiv to heal them. It worked! However, I got an instant Migraineeach time. You cannot take aspirin, so I took my Migraine medicine – Fiorcet. It took about two weeks to heal. A real godsend! Only downfall was the cost -$525.00 per tube. Insurance covered it, thankfully!”

For Anal Fissure and Fistula “I’m on day 2 of this product and I “feel” a drastic difference. I am forever grateful to my doctor for prescribing this. 3 years ago I had the same issue and I suffered for 3 months with excruciating pain during my bowel movement to the point I added to my misery by holding it for up to a week at a time to suffer from as few painful bowel motions as possible all because I was to embarrassed to show this problem to my doctor. Never again and I really thank the pharmacist for the coupon to bring my cost down to 40 dollars. There is a mild side effect I didn’t have a headache more so painless throbbing in my head for the first 1-2 after application. I was still able to function and get through my clinicals without feeling faint or ill.”
