Reviews about Relief

There are quite a lot of reviews about Relief on medical sites and they are very ambiguous. Many patients were satisfied with the effect of the drug, noting that after the treatment, small cracks in the anus and around the anus healed, bleeding stopped, and pain was relieved. They also indicate a positive result of drug therapy at the initial stage of external hemorrhoids. For some patients, suppositories and Relief ointment helped to cope with this lesion during pregnancy.

However, there are many reviews in which they note that the drug does not treat hemorrhoids, but only reduces the severity of the manifestations of its individual symptoms for a short time. There are also many complaints about a very unpleasant odor of the ointment and sometimes discomfort when using suppositories (it is required to use pads, since candles can stain laundry). In isolated cases, they indicate the development of side effects that are not indicated in the instructions, such as painful bloating, nausea. Many patients are unhappy with the high cost of the product.

Price for Relief in pharmacies

The Relief price can be:

  • rectal suppositories: 410–480 rubles per pack containing 12 pcs.;
