Analgesic suppositories for hemorrhoids are applied topically and for the analgesic effect they have local anesthetics in their composition - substances that either reduce the sensitivity of painful afferent receptors of nerve fibers, or interfere with the transmission of painful nerve impulses.

Pharmacodynamics of analgesic action of candles Anestezol is based on the action of benzocaine, as well as menthol (whose content in one suppository is 25 times less than benzocaine). Benzocaine (synonymous with anesthesin) - ethyl ester of para-aminobenzoic acid - blocks the transmission of nerve signals by reducing the permeability of synaptic membranes for Na +. The localizing properties of menthol are less pronounced and are manifested by irritation of the nerve endings of the cold receptors of the rectal mucosa.

Analgesic suppositories for hemorrhoids Proctosan Neo, Proctoglienol and Doloproct contain lidocaine in the form of hydrochloride (α-diethylamino-2,6-dimethylacetanilide hydrochloride), which acts in the same way as benzocaine. In addition, Proctozan Neo suppositories contain NPVS buffeksamak, which blocks cyclooxygenase, reducing the synthesis of prostaglandins and the activity of neurotransmitters.

The analgesic effect of the candles Anuzol, Betiol, and candles with belladonna is due to the content of the extract of the medicinal plant Atropa belladonna L (belladonna). Atropine alkaloid reduces the sensitivity of the cholinoceptors of nerve endings, which causes a temporary disabling of local parasympathetic innervation in the area of rectal suppository application.

Biotransformation of lidocaine occurs in the liver (by hydroxylation), metabolites (4-hydroxy-2,6-xylidine) are excreted in the urine.
