At NiceRx, we review each application individually, although the main factors considered by most programs are:

  • I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico

  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for Proctofoam HC patient assistance?

We do everything that we can to take the hassle and stress out of applying for patient assistance programs. Simply start by filling in our enrollment application.

We may also be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications that you have been prescribed, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Proctofoam HC.

NiceRx will review the information you have provided, and if we determine that you may be eligible for assistance, we will seek to enroll you in the Proctofoam HC patient assistance program.

We will also request your Proctofoam HC medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.

What is Proctofoam HC?

Proctofoam HC is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Duchesnay. Proctofoam HC is a topical aerosol foam used to treat minor pain, itching, swelling, and discomfort caused by hemorrhoids and other problems of the anal area (anal fissures). This medication contains pramoxine, as a local anesthetic that works by temporarily numbing the area, and hydrocortisone, a corticosteroid (steroid) that acts as an anti-inflammatory agent that reduces redness, itching, and rectal irritation.

What doses of Proctofoam HC are available?

Proctofoam HC is available as a rectal foam, in the following doses: pramoxine hydrochloride 100mg in 10g, hydrocortisone acetate 100mg in 10g.

Shake well before use. Hold the aerosol upright to use. This medicine is for rectal use only. Do not take Proctofoam HC (pramoxine and hydrocortisone rectal foam) by mouth. Wash your hands before and after use. Use an applicator to put in rectal foam. Apply to the affected area 3 to 4 times daily. Do not put the applicator into the rectum. After each use, applicator parts should be pulled apart for thorough cleaning with warm water. Store upright at room temperature.

Please read the drug information leaflet and always speak with your healthcare professional for medical advice or about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
