Topicort Ointment



Dosage Form: ointment
Topicort®
(Desoximetasone Ointment USP) 0.05%

For topical use only. Not for oral, ophthalmic, or intravaginal use.

Rx only

Topicort Ointment Description

Topicort® (desoximetasone ointment USP) 0.05% contains the active synthetic corticosteroid desoximetasone. The topical corticosteroids constitute a class of primarily synthetic steroids used as anti-inflammatory and antipruritic agents.

Each gram of Topicort® (desoximetasone ointment USP) 0.05% contains 0.5 mg of desoximetasone in an ointment base consisting of mineral oil and white petrolatum.

The chemical name of desoximetasone is Pregna-1, 4-diene-3, 20-dione, 9-fluoro-11, 21-dihydroxy- 16-methyl-,(11?,16?)-.

Desoximetasone has the molecular formula C22H29FO4 and a molecular weight of 376.47. The CAS Registry Number is 382-67-2.

The structural formula is:

Topicort Ointment - Clinical Pharmacology

Topical corticosteroids share anti-inflammatory, antipruritic and vasoconstrictive actions.

The mechanism of anti-inflammatory activity of the topical corticosteroids is unclear. Various laboratory methods, including vasoconstrictor assays, are used to compare and predict potencies and/or clinical efficacies of the topical corticosteroids. There is some evidence to suggest that a recognizable correlation exists between vasoconstrictor potency and therapeutic efficacy in man.

Pharmacokinetics

The extent of percutaneous absorption of topical corticosteroids is determined by many factors including the vehicle, the integrity of the epidermal barrier, and the use of occlusive dressings.

Topical corticosteroids can be absorbed from normal intact skin. Inflammation and/or other disease processes in the skin increase percutaneous absorption. Occlusive dressings substantially increase the percutaneous absorption of topical corticosteroids. Thus, occlusive dressings may be a valuable therapeutic adjunct for treatment of resistant dermatoses.

Once absorbed through the skin, topical corticosteroids are handled through pharmacokinetic pathways similar to systemically administered corticosteroids. Corticosteroids are bound to plasma proteins in varying degrees. Corticosteroids are metabolized primarily in the liver and are then excreted by the kidneys. Some of the topical corticosteroids and their metabolites are also excreted into the bile.

Pharmacokinetic studies in men with Topicort® (desoximetasone) Ointment 0.25% with tagged desoximetasone showed no detectable level (limit of sensitivity: 0.003 µg/mL) in 1 subject and 0.004 and 0.006 µg/mL in the remaining 2 subjects in the blood when it was applied topically on the back followed by occlusion for 24 hours. The extent of absorption for the ointment was 7% based on radioactivity recovered from urine and feces. Seven days after application, no further radioactivity was detected in urine or feces. Studies with other similarly structured steroids have shown that predominant metabolite reaction occurs through conjugation to form the glucuronide and sulfate ester.

Indications and Usage for Topicort Ointment

Topicort® (desoximetasone ointment USP) 0.05% is indicated for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses.

Contraindications

Topical corticosteroids are contraindicated in those patients with a history of hypersensitivity to any of the components of the preparation.

Warnings

Keep out of reach of children.

Precautions General

Systemic absorption of topical corticosteroids can produce reversible hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression with the potential for clinical glucocorticosteroid insufficiency. This may occur during treatment or upon withdrawal of the topical corticosteroid.

Because of the potential for systemic absorption, use of topical corticosteroids may require that patients be periodically evaluated for HPA axis suppression. Factors that predispose a patient using a topical corticosteroid to HPA axis suppression include the use of more potent steroids, use over large surface areas, use over prolonged periods, use under occlusion, use on an altered skin barrier, and use in patients with liver failure.

An ACTH stimulation test may be helpful in evaluating patients for HPA axis suppression. If HPA axis suppression is documented, an attempt should be made to gradually withdraw the drug, to reduce the frequency of application, or to substitute a less potent steroid. Manifestations of adrenal insufficiency may require supplemental systemic corticosteroids. Recovery of HPA axis function is generally prompt and complete upon discontinuation of topical corticosteroids.

Cushing's syndrome, hyperglycemia, and unmasking of latent diabetes mellitus can also result from systemic absorption of topical corticosteroids.

Use of more than one corticosteroid-containing product at the same time may increase the total systemic corticosteroid exposure.

Pediatric patients may be more susceptible to systemic toxicity from use of topical corticosteroids.

Local Adverse Reactions with Topical Corticosteroids

Local adverse reactions may be more likely to occur with occlusive use, prolonged use or use of higher potency corticosteroids. Reactions may include atrophy, striae, telangiectasias, burning, itching, irritation, dryness, folliculitis, acneiform eruptions, hypopigmentation, perioral dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, secondary infection, and miliaria. Some local adverse reactions may be irreversible.

Allergic Contact Dermatitis with Topical Corticosteroids

Allergic contact dermatitis to any component of topical corticosteroids is usually diagnosed by a failure to heal rather than a clinical exacerbation. Clinical diagnosis of allergic contact dermatitis can be confirmed by patch testing.

Concomitant Skin Infections

Concomitant skin infections should be treated with an appropriate antimicrobial agent. If the infection persists, Topicort® (desoximetasone ointment USP) 0.05% should be discontinued until the infection has been adequately treated.

Information for the Patient

Patients using topical corticosteroids should receive the following information and instructions:

This medication is to be used as directed by the physician. It is for external use only. Avoid contact with the eyes. Patients should be advised not to use this medication for any disorder other than that for which it was prescribed. The treated skin area should not be bandaged or otherwise covered or wrapped so as to be occlusive unless directed by the physician. Patients should report any signs of local adverse reactions, especially under occlusive dressings. Other corticosteroid-containing products should not be used with Topicort® (desoximetasone ointment USP) 0.05% without first consulting with the physician.

As with other corticosteroids, therapy should be discontinued when control is achieved. If no improvement is seen within 4 weeks, contact the physician.

Laboratory Tests

The following tests may be helpful in evaluating the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression:

  Urinary free cortisol test   ACTH stimulation test Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, and Impairment of Fertility

Long-term animal studies have not been performed to evaluate the carcinogenic potential or the effect on fertility of topical corticosteroids.

Desoximetasone was nonmutagenic in the Ames test.

Pregnancy Teratogenic Effects Pregnancy Category C

Corticosteroids have been shown to be teratogenic in laboratory animals when administered systemically at relatively low dosage levels. Some corticosteroids have been shown to be teratogenic after dermal application in laboratory animals.

Desoximetasone has been shown to be teratogenic and embryotoxic in mice, rats, and rabbits when given by subcutaneous or dermal routes of administration in doses 15 to 150 times the human dose of Topicort® (desoximetasone ointment USP) 0.05%.

There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women on teratogenic effects from topically applied corticosteroids. Therefore, Topicort® (desoximetasone ointment USP) 0.05% should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. Drugs of this class should not be used extensively on pregnant patients, in large amounts, or for prolonged periods of time.

Nursing Mothers

It is not known whether topical administration of corticosteroids could result in sufficient systemic absorption to produce detectable quantities in breast milk. Systemically administered corticosteroids are secreted into breast milk in quantities not likely to have a deleterious effect on the infant. Nevertheless, caution should be exercised when topical corticosteroids are administered to a nursing woman.

Pediatric Use

Pediatric patients may demonstrate greater susceptibility to topical corticosteroid-induced HPA axis suppression and Cushing's syndrome than mature patients because of a larger skin surface area to body weight ratio.

Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression, Cushing's syndrome, and intracranial hypertension have been reported in pediatric patients receiving topical corticosteroids. Manifestations of adrenal suppression in pediatric patients include linear growth retardation, delayed weight gain, low plasma cortisol levels, and absence of response to ACTH stimulation. Manifestations of intracranial hypertension include bulging fontanelles, headaches, and bilateral papilledema.

Administration of topical corticosteroids to pediatric patients should be limited to the least amount compatible with an effective therapeutic regimen. Chronic corticosteroid therapy may interfere with the growth and development of pediatric patients.

Adverse Reactions

The following local adverse reactions are reported infrequently with topical corticosteroids, but may occur more frequently with the use of occlusive dressings. These reactions are listed in an approximate decreasing order of occurrence:

Burning, itching, irritation, dryness, folliculitis, hypertrichosis, acneiform eruptions, hypopigmentation, perioral dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, maceration of the skin, secondary infection, skin atrophy, striae, and miliaria.

In controlled clinical studies the incidence of adverse reactions was low (0.2%) for Topicort® (desoximetasone ointment USP) 0.05% and included mild burning sensation at the site of application.

Overdosage

Topically applied corticosteroids can be absorbed in sufficient amounts to produce systemic effects (see PRECAUTIONS).

Topicort Ointment Dosage and Administration

Apply a thin film of Topicort® (desoximetasone ointment USP) 0.05% to the affected skin areas twice daily. Rub in gently.

Efudix 5% Cream


EFUDIX 5% Cream

Fluorouracil

Please read this leaflet carefully before you start to take your medicine. If you have any questions or are not sure about anything, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

What Is Efudix Cream?

Efudix Cream contains the active ingredient fluorouracil, which belongs to a group of medicines known as antimetabolites, at a concentration of 5%. It works by interfering with the growth of abnormal cells which are eventually destroyed. It also contains the inactive ingredients stearyl alcohol, white soft paraffin, polysorbate 60, propylene glycol, methyl parahydroxybenzoate (methyl paraben), propyl parahydroxybenzoate (propyl paraben) and purified water.

The cream is supplied in tubes of 20 g and 40 g.

The Product Licence/Authorisation for Efudix Cream is held by Meda Pharmaceuticals Ltd. Skyway House Parsonage Road Takeley Bishop’s Stortford CM22 6PU UK It is made by ICN Polfa Rzesz?w S.A. ul. Przemys?owa 2 35-959 Rzesz?w Poland What Is Efudix Cream Used For?

Efudix Cream is used to treat certain skin conditions caused by abnormal cell growth including different types of keratoses (a horny growth of the skin), keratocanthoma (a firm nodule on the skin), Bowen’s disease and some simple skin cancers.

When Must Efudix Cream Not Be Used? If you are pregnant or breast feeding. If you are allergic to Efudix Cream or any of its ingredients including parabens. It is not recommended for use by children. When Should You Be Extra Careful When Using Efudix Cream?

Make sure your doctor knows if you are using any other medicines you apply to the areas of skin being treated (e.g. creams and ointments), including ones bought by yourself without a prescription.

May Efudix Cream Be Used During Pregnancy Or While Breast Feeding?

You must not use Efudix Cream if you are pregnant, think you may be pregnant or are breast feeding.

It is important to tell your doctor if you are pregnant, think you may be pregnant or intend to become pregnant during treatment.

How Should Efudix Cream Be Used? Always use Efudix Cream as your doctor tells you to. It must only be used on the skin. Be careful if applying Efudix Cream around your eyelids, nose and lips and avoid any contact with the eyes or mouth.Wash your hands thoroughly after use. If somebody else is helping you to apply the cream, they should take precautions to avoid cream being absorbed through their skin. It is recommended that they should wear disposable surgical gloves, remove these after use and wash their hands thoroughly. It is not necessary for you to wear gloves as the intended treatment results in some of the cream being absorbed. The cream should be applied in a thin layer to the affected area once or twice daily or as your doctor advises. The total area of skin treated at any one time should not be more than 23x23 cm (500 cm square) or 9x9 inches. Your doctor should tell you if you need to apply a dressing to the treated skin. You will normally need to use the cream for at least three to four weeks.Your skin may appear to be worse after you start the treatment. This is to be expected and you should continue to apply the cream as directed. If your skin becomes much worse, or if you are worried, consult your doctor. After stopping treatment you may find that your skin takes one to two months to heal completely.
