Methyluracil candles are often used in medicine. Thanks to them, there is an improvement in the nutrition of tissues, the stimulation of the process of cell recovery, the provision of an immunostimulating action, the removal of inflammation, an increase in the protective functions of cells and tissues.
Candles with methyluracil in hemorrhoids accelerate the formation of red blood cells and white blood cells, which is why they are used in proctology, as well as in other areas of medicine.
No less effective in the treatment of diseases of the female genital sphere, because they increase the regenerative capacity of epithelial cells. This contributes to methyluracil.
Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics
The instructions for the preparation “Candles with Methyluracilum” indicate that metabolism is improved by Methyluracilum, since it exhibits anabolic and anti-catabolic activity. In addition, methyluracil has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.
As a result of stimulation of cell regeneration mechanisms, a wound healing effect occurs. The substance normalizes nucleotide metabolism in cell nuclei, in this its anti-ulcer properties in the gastrointestinal tract are manifested, and hematopoiesis is also stimulated (leukopoiesis and erythropoiesis). Humoral and cellular protective mechanisms are activated.
The substance is completely excreted in the urine after 24 hours. Well absorbed, after 20 hours it can be found in the blood. The maximum concentration is noted in 1-2 hours.
When prescribed candles with methyluracil
Treatment with methyluracil candles is especially effective at the onset of the disease. At an early stage, this drug alone may be enough to eliminate the symptoms of hemorrhoids. In the second or third stage, it is used as part of complex therapy. In the late, fourth stage, characterized by falling out hemorrhoidal nodes, which cannot be set right, and severe bleeding, conservative therapy does not provide the desired effect, the treatment consists in a surgical operation.
Despite the safety, it is possible to use methyluracil for hemorrhoids only as prescribed by a doctor who will take into account the specifics of the disease, its stage and other factors, calculate the optimal dosage and tell you about the rules for using the drug.

Recently it has been found in pharmacies sponges and dressings with Methyluracil for local use.The ointment is applied to the tissue base in advance; it is enough just to fix the bandage at the right place - the damaged area of the skin or mucous membrane. It can be left until the drug is completely absorbed, but it is better to read the instructions and follow the recommendations given there.
With hemorrhoids, this drug is almost always used in external forms - that is, in the form of ointment and / or candles.
The composition and action of the means
Methyluracil is a powerful means of accelerating cell regeneration, which makes it possible to use it widely not only in the treatment of hemorrhoids, but also everywhere where it comes to impairing the integrity of the skin, tissues, mucous membranes, etc. These are traumatic wound surfaces and burns ( not only thermal, but also chemical, and solar), and postoperative scars, and trophic ulcers, and vaginal injuries in women after childbirth, and much more. Patients describe the effect of the drug as a rapid removal of inflammation, pain relief and prevention of infection of the affected area.
The active ingredient of the drug is methyluracil itself or dioxomethyl tetrahydropyrimidine. For ease of use in the composition of the drug and added excipients: petrolatum and / or lanolin for ointment, the composition of solid fats - for suppositories, starch, talc, povidone - for tablets. In dressings Vorkopan, for example, in addition to ointment, contains propolis, beeswax and vitamin E.
The action of Methyluracil is based on the activation of metabolic processes. Acceleration of nucleic acid metabolism stimulates cell growth, promoting healing and epithelialization of wounds and inflamed tissue. The anabolic and anti-catabolic effects of the drug stimulate the production of new cells and the regeneration of damaged tissues, while delaying the breakdown of complex organic compounds.
The tablet form of Methyluracil triggers a number of healing processes in the body, the main ones are:
- stimulation of the production and maturation of blood cells in the bone marrow - erythrocytes and leukocytes,
- activation of cellular immunity - the reaction of protective blood cells to antigens,
- stimulation of humoral immunity - the production of immunoglobulin and other protein complexes and enzymes responsible for the body's defenses.
When hemorrhoids are almost always enough external forms of Methyluracil - ointment and rectal suppositories. When applied externally, it has a powerful regenerating effect due to the stimulation of local blood flow and the acceleration of tissue repair processes. Along the way, swelling and inflammation are removed, the pain disappears and the itching is eliminated. Under these conditions, the rectal veins return to normal, and the fissures of the mucous membrane and anus heal quickly.
The area of the anus becomes less susceptible to infection and inflammation further due to the ability of Methyluracil to activate local immunity at the cellular level.
Indications for use
With hemorrhoids, Methyluracil is prescribed to quickly relieve inflammation of the mucous membrane of the rectum and surrounding tissues, as a result of which the venous nodules return to normal, swelling and pain disappear, which tormented the patient during a bowel movement or constantly. Even if the disease is started before the appearance of bleeding cracks of the mucous and anal rings, the action of Methyluracil significantly speeds up healing, simultaneously relieving itching and preventing infection of such injuries.
Also, this drug is indicated for the rehabilitation after surgery to remove neglected hemorrhoidal nodules. Methyluracil ointment provides rapid healing of scars and relieves postoperative pain.
Methyluracil in the form of candles or ointments are widely used in comorbidities, such as:
- inflammation of the mucous membrane of the rectum,
- sigmoid inflammation
- anal fissures,
- traumatic or postoperative intestinal damage,
- ulcerative colitis, etc.
In women, the drug is widely used in the treatment of erosion and inflammation of the vagina and cervix, postoperative scars in the genital area. No less effective medication for the rapid treatment of burns and pressure sores on the skin or mucous membranes.
Conditions when the use of Methyluracil is undesirable are due to its ability to affect systemic hematopoiesis - the process of generating blood cells. These include malignant and neoplastic diseases of the hematopoietic and lymphatic systems: bone marrow cancer, leukemia, etc.
With caution, the drug is used for local manifestations of hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients, which manifests itself as a burning sensation, itching, redness and rash on the skin. Methyluracil is not prescribed if there is a history of intolerance to the active substance or one of the auxiliary components.
Children under the age of three are not recommended to prescribe Methyluracil. Clear contraindications to its reception is not fixed, but at the disposal of the medical community there is not enough information about its safety for the child's body.
How to apply Methyluracil Ointment
Methyluracil in the form of an ointment is used for hemorrhoids in the case of violation of the integrity of the skin or mucous membranes and the complication of the disease, and in the postoperative period.
When external manifestations of hemorrhoids - loss of venous nodes, edema, sphincter cracks - the ointment is applied directly to the inflamed and damaged areas to relieve pain and accelerate healing. Before the procedure, you need to empty the intestines, rinse the anus with warm water and dry with a soft cloth. Apply a small amount of ointment to clean skin and spread evenly over the surface.
Sometimes it is recommended to additionally do sit baths with a decoction of chamomile or a solution of potassium permanganate. This not only washes the wounds qualitatively, but also disinfects them, preparing them for the application of the medicine.
When caring for postoperative stitches, you must first thoroughly wash them and treat with an antiseptic solution: furatsilinom, hydrogen peroxide, chlorhexidine or potassium permanganate, dry with a napkin, and then apply Methyluracil hemorrhoids ointment.
Important: when preparing a solution of potassium permanganate, it is necessary to ensure that all the crystals dissolve and the liquid becomes a faint pink color, since too strong a solution or undissolved potassium permanganate crystals can aggravate the situation, contributing to the appearance of a chemical burn.
For deep wounds or cracks ointment can be used in the form of dressings. Apply on folded gauze or bandage and apply directly to the wound, fixing the bandage with a plaster.
The duration of the treatment of hemorrhoids with Methyluracil ointment is determined by the doctor in accordance with the instructions for use and on the basis of the current state of the patient.
Features of the use of methyluracil candles for hemorrhoids
When the inflammation of the venous nodes and perianal tissue goes deep into the rectum, Methyluracil in the form of suppositories for rectal administration is more suitable. Such tools help the rapid healing of wounds and fissures inside the intestine and relieve inflammation of the venous nodes during the acute period of the disease, as well as during rehabilitation after hemorrhoidectomy.
Before starting the procedure, it is necessary to clean the intestines. If defecation brings pain, you can do an enema with sea buckthorn or other vegetable oil. To do this, in a small rubber syringe or pear dial up to 20 ml of oil and gently inject the tip into the rectum. After this, at the first urge to defecate, you need to empty it - now it will be much less painful. Then the area of the anus should be washed with warm water and blot with a soft cloth.
For the correct introduction of a candle for hemorrhoids, you need to take a comfortable position: it is recommended to lie on your back and press your knees to your chest. Wet your fingers in clean water and insert the unpacked candle as deep as possible into the anus, then put on clean and dry clothes and remain in a horizontal position. It is not recommended to get up, and especially to walk with a candle inside, as the melted substance can leak out. That is why it is better to perform this procedure at night - a minimum of physical activity will allow the medicine to be completely absorbed.
If it is not possible to introduce a candle before going to bed or the course implies performing this procedure twice a day (for example, in the morning and in the evening), then, having entered a suppository, it is necessary to lie down for at least half an hour.
The course of treatment with Methyluracil suppositories can be quite long, up to a month of continuous use. The components of the drug in this case do not enter the systemic circulation, and therefore cannot cause any undesirable side reactions, since they act only locally on the tissues in the rectal area.
Composition and pharmacological action in hemorrhoids of candles with methyluracil
Methyluracil candles contain the active ingredient with the chemical name 2,4-dihydroxy-6-methylpyrimidine. This compound is a methyl derivative of uracil - pririmidine base, which is one of the components of ribonucleic acids. As excipients for suppositories, a special base is used.
The active ingredient of the drug has anabolic, anti-catabolic and regenerating effects. Rectal use of methyluracil in hemorrhoids contributes to:
- reducing pain and relieving inflammation,
- stop bleeding,
- improving the processes of cellular nutrition in the affected area,
- accelerate the healing of damaged tissue,
- local activation of cellular immunity.
Candles with methyluracil have a pronounced immunostimulating effect, which is very important for hemorrhoids, when the patient has a general decrease in immunity. The drug quickly activates at the local level the system of cellular and humoral immunity, in particular T-and B-lymphocytes, cytokines and other components of the immune system. This leads to an improvement in the general condition of the patient and prevents the accession of a bacterial infection in the anal area.
Anabolic and anti-catabolic activity of the drug is associated with the characteristics of the chemical structure of methyluracil, which allows its use as one of the elements for the synthesis of nucleic acids. The drug increases the production of protein molecules, growth and cell division in damaged tissues. Candles with methyluracil in hemorrhoids potentiate the formation of granulation tissue and a new epithelium in place of the affected mucous membranes and skin. These processes are of great importance in the treatment of hemorrhoids, as the inflamed rectal mucosa and the skin of the perianal area are easily injured during the passage of solid fecal masses, as well as as a result of sprains during strong straining during defecation. In addition, methyluracil actively stimulates the formation of blood cells - leukocytes and erythrocytes, which also contributes to the rapid tissue regeneration and stop bleeding.
Anti-inflammatory activity of methyluracil is realized due to its ability to inhibit the activity of proteolytic enzymes. Due to this, patients have reduced pain and more actively restorative processes occur in the affected area. Methyluracil suppositories improve tissue trophism, accelerate their regeneration, quickly and effectively heal cracks and ulcers on the rectal mucosa.
Important: Methyluracil is available in the form of ointment, suppositories and tablets. All of them can be used to treat hemorrhoids. In addition, methyluracil is widely used in the treatment of gynecological, urological, gastrointestinal and other diseases.
The use of candles on the basis of methyluracil in hemorrhoids
Methyluracil candles for hemorrhoids are prescribed during exacerbations, with inflammation of hemorrhoids and impaired integrity of the rectal mucosa. Also, the use of the drug is effective in the postoperative period in the case of surgical or minimally invasive intervention to remove hemorrhoids. Methyluracil provides rapid healing of tissues injured as a result of surgery, reduces pain and contributes to the earliest possible recovery of the patient’s ability to work.
Method of use of methyluracil in the form of suppositories for hemorrhoids
Apply candles with methyluracil for hemorrhoids should be after a spontaneous or enema-induced defecation act. After bowel emptying, hygiene procedures are performed to clean the perineum and anus. The skin of the perianal area is wiped dry with a towel or soft paper napkins. The candle is inserted deep into the anus in the prone position with a rounded end forward. After that, the patient must remain in a horizontal position for at least 30 minutes to ensure good absorption and to prevent the drug from leaking out. Candles with methyluracil are most often recommended to be administered overnight.
The required dosage and duration of use in each case is determined by the doctor individually, depending on the severity of the clinical picture. According to the instructions, the following daily amounts of methyluracil are recommended, which are divided into several doses:
- adults - up to 4 (if necessary, a maximum of 6) candles,
- children from 8 to 15 years old - 1 candle,
- Children from 3 to 8 years old - ½ candles.
The course of treatment can range from 7 days to four months, in most cases with hemorrhoids, it is two weeks.
Combined use of candles and ointments with methyluracil for hemorrhoids
In some cases, when combined hemorrhoids proctologists appoint a simultaneous reception of candles and ointment with methyluracil. In this case, the therapeutic effect of candles is directed to internal hemorrhoids, and ointments - to external ones. This therapy allows you to quickly and efficiently regenerate damaged tissue and eliminate the unpleasant symptoms of the disease. Ointment removes swelling and inflammation of the perianal zone, heals cracks.
When combined with the use of candles and ointment with methyluracil, a candle is first introduced into the rectal cavity, and then ointment is applied to the anus. Apply the ointment to the external hemorrhoids on the gauze napkin, fixing it on top with a plaster or elastic bandage. On the skin around the nodes, the agent is applied with clean hands with light massaging movements.
Important: Methyluracil candles and ointment are used for hemorrhoids as part of complex therapy. Their main therapeutic effect is tissue regeneration. However, their ability to stop bleeding is mild. Also, they do not reduce the formation and do not affect the resorption of existing blood clots.
Precautions in the treatment of hemorrhoids methyluracil

How does methyluracil in hemorrhoids?
Methyluracil - a substance that improves tissue trophism, stimulates regeneration, cellular immunity. It triggers the work of structures that produce biologically active substances that promote the healing of damage, the restoration of the physiological structure of tissues, prevents the breakdown of protein (anti-catabolic effect). Methyluracil also has a pronounced anti-inflammatory effect. The therapeutic effect of methyluracil in hemorrhoids is based on its ability to restore the damaged rectal mucosa.
When hemorrhoids, especially in the period of exacerbations, the mucous membrane of the rectum becomes inflamed, which makes it susceptible to injury.
