General Information on Cortenema
Cortenema is used for treating symptoms of an intestinal condition known as ulcerative colitis. The drug cannot cure the condition, but can manage it effectively with the help of other drugs that are taken along with it. The generic name of Cortenema is Hydrocortisone, and it belongs to the category of corticosteroids.
You can buy Cortenema in the form of an enema. It works by reducing inflammation in the colon and rectum so that bloody stools and diarrhea are reduced.
Side effects of Cortenema
Before you buy Cortenema, inform your doctor if you have an allergy to Hydrocortisone, or if you are suffering from a stomach or intestinal problem such as ulcers, blockage, infections or bleeding, eye conditions such as glaucoma, herpes in the eye or cataract, heart problems such as a recent heart attack or congestive heart failure, thyroid problems such as an underactive or overactive thyroid, mental or mood conditions such as depression or psychosis, high blood pressure, kidney or liver disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, blood clotting or bleeding problems, muscle or nerve disease, or low calcium or potassium levels in the blood. In such circumstances, your doctor may need to conduct some special tests or make dosage adjustments before recommending Cortenema for your treatment.
Dizziness, burning or pain in the rectum, trouble sleeping, increased sweating, unusual weight gain, changes in menstrual periods, unusual hair growth, or acne may commonly occur during Cortenema treatment. You should inform your doctor at once if any of these symptoms become too bothersome to be managed.
Cortenema causes dizziness, so you must avoid driving a vehicle, operating a machine, or doing any such activity that requires you to be completely alert immediately after taking a dose. Do not take any other drugs that cause dizziness, including sleeping pills, sedatives, anti-anxiety, antidepressants, or anti-seizure medicines, narcotic pain relievers, or tranquilizers along with Cortenema.
Some serious side effects associated with Cortenema include unusual skin growths, thinning of the skin, puffy face, vision problems, increased thirst or urination, swelling of the ankles or feet, persistent headache, slow healing of wounds, unusual bruising or bleeding, persistent rectal bleeding, severe heartburn, black or tarry stools, dark colored vomit, brittle bones and/or bone pain, severe abdominal or stomach pain, mental or mood changes, irregular heartbeat, muscle pain or weakness, seizures, or signs of infection such as persistent throat soreness, fever, worsening irritation or redness near the anus, or painful urination.
Dosage of Cortenema
You will usually need to take one Cortenema enema every night for 21 days, but the treatment may continue for as long as 3 months depending on the severity of your medical condition. If you are using Cortenema for more than 21 days, you will need to discontinue it gradually. In that case, your doctor will advise you to take one Cortenema every two days for around 2-3 weeks.
In order to achieve the best results, you will be advised to lie down for 30 minutes on your left after using the enema. In this way, Cortenema will be well distributed through your intestines. Also avoid urinating right after taking a dose.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
