  • Difference between rescue instill and one using Solu-Cortef?

    I have been using rescue instills of sodium bicarbonate, heparin and lidocaine. Sometimes it helps and sometimes it doesn't. I found a new doctor who uses a different mixture with SoluCortef. I was told this was not a rescue instill and may help for longer periods of time. Has anyone had positive results using SoluCortef? Thanks in advance for any replies!

        Thanks for your response Leelee52. I have not tried any instills yet but am thinking about it. I am interested to try the Parson's solution first (Hep-Lido-A). And maybe the one you are using so glad to hear they are helping you! That is encouraging

          I used the parsons for over a year. It was hit or miss. For me, adding the Solu Cortef is what is helping for the long term. It is not a rescue instill

            Oops... Didn't mean to hit send so fast. Anyway it gives me relief immediately, but should also help long term! Good luck!
