Rectiv -- anyone had?

I've been prescribed Diltizitam (or something like that) for an anal fissure. Seemed to work well except for holy lord an itching that will make you want to sit on a hot coal.

So I've been prescribed Rectiv. Sounds like it's a nitroglycerin based product. I've heard it causes severe headaches, but since a severe headache is more welcome than an anal fissure, I'm more than willing to risk it.

Anyone have any personal experience with this cream?

Re: Rectiv -- anyone had?

So I've been on this for about 12 hours now, 4 'treatments'.

It seems to be just nitroglycerin .4% with something mixed in. I've had a headache with every dose and mild burning / discomfort at the application site. I've applied to the outside of the anus 3 times and once using the giant applicator the Walgreens gave me.

The headaches aren't terrible but I am not enjoying them either. I believe I am seeing results already though so I'm gonna man up and try to stay positive. I do believe even with just a few applications i'm already seeing results.
