Drug Alert
Before Consuming the Medicine
Avoid Drug The following conditions should not be treated with fluticasone propionate: • Untreated cutaneous infections • Rosacea • Acne vulgaris • Perioral dermatitis • Perianal and genital pruritus • Pruritus without inflammation • Dermatoses in infants under three months of age, including dermatitis and nappy rash.
Drug Special Care Fluticasone propionate should be used with caution in patients with a history of local hypersensitivity to other corticosteroids.Manifestations of hypercortisolism (Cushing's Syndrome) and reversible hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression, leading to glucocorticosteroid insufficiency, can occur in some individuals as a result of increased systemic absorption of topical steroids. If either of the above are observed, withdraw the drug gradually by reducing the frequency of application, or by substituting a less potent corticosteroid. Abrupt withdrawal of treatment may result in glucocorticosteroid insufficiency
Drug Drug Interactions Co-administered drugs that can inhibit CYP3A4 (e.g. ritonavir, itraconazole) have been shown to inhibit the metabolism of corticosteroids leading to increased systemic exposure. The extent to which this interaction is clinically relevant depends on the dose and route of administration of the corticosteroids and the potency of the CYP3A4 inhibitor.
Drug Pregnancy Interaction administration of fluticasone propionate during pregnancy should only be considered if the expected benefit to the mother is greater than any possible risk to the foetus. The minimum quantity should be used for the minimum duration.
Drug Breast feeding Interaction Administration of fluticasone propionate during lactation should only be considered if the expected benefit to the mother outweighs the risk to the infant. If used during lactation, fluticasone propionate should not be applied to the breasts to avoid accidental ingestion by the infant.
Drug Machinery Interaction There have been no studies to investigate the effect of fluticasone propionate on driving performance or the ability to operate machinery. A detrimental effect on such activities would not be anticipated from the adverse reaction profile of topical fluticasone propionate.
Drug More Information For children and infants aged three months and over who are unresponsive to lower potency corticosteroids, Cutivate cream is indicated for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of atopic dermatitis under the supervision of a specialist.
How to take the Medicine
Consumption Info
Drug quanitty Apply thinly and gently rub in using only enough to cover the entire affected area once or twice a day for up to 4 weeks until improvement occurs, then reduce the frequency of application or change the treatment to a less potent preparation. Allow adequate time for absorption after each application before applying an emollient. Children over 3 months Children are more likely to develop local and systemic side effects of topical corticosteroids and, in general, require shorter courses and less potent agents than adults. Care should be taken when using fluticasone propionate to ensure the amount applied is the minimum that provides therapeutic benefit.
Drug Dose
Excess Drug Consumption Overdose Symptoms and Signs Topically applied fluticasone propionate may be absorbed in sufficient amounts to produce systemic effects. Acute overdosage is very unlikely to occur, however, in the case of chronic overdosage or misuse, the features of hypercortisolism may appear.
