Empty out the lower: suppositories stimulate the colon to contract (and may cause you to pass gas.--It is ok. It should not make you constipated--but may empty out the lower intestine making you feel constipated.

Stimulates straining: I know of nothing that says caffeine makes hemorrhoids worse. But caffeine does stimulate the colon to contract and increase blood flow in the hemorrhoid--making them larger only if they are already present.
