Drug Ingredient Information



Information for patients
Drug Information For topical treatment of mild to moderate inflammatory forms of acne vulgaris
Drug Alert
Alert The product should not be applied to broken skin (cuts and abrasions). There is no data covering the safety of concomitant treatment with other acne medications (e.g. benzoyl peroxide), and nadifloxacin should therefore be used as a monotherapeutic only. nadifloxacin Cream contains: stearyl alcohol and cetyl alcohol, which may cause local skin reactions (e.g. contact dermatitis) and benzalkonium chloride, which may be irritant and may cause skin reactions.
Before Consuming the Medicine
Avoid Drug nadifloxacin is contraindicated in known hypersensitivity to nadifloxacin or any excipient of the product.
Drug Special Care The safety and effectiveness of nadifloxacin cream have not been studied sufficiently in children below the age of 14 years. Therefore nadifloxacin should not be used in patients of this age group. Contact with the eyes or other mucous membranes should be avoided. Contact with nadifloxacin requires immediate flushing of eyes or mucous membranes with warm water. Hands should be washed after applying the cream in order to avoid unintentional application to other areas. Photosensitivity reactions have been known to develop under therapy with other quinolones administered systemically. While several studies in animals and man have shown neither phototoxic nor photoallergic potentials for the active ingredient nadifloxacin, the cream base may have an enhancing effect on photosensitivity. Moreover no experience is available on prolonged exposure to sunlight or artificial UV light under nadifloxacin. Patients using nadifloxacin cream should therefore avoid exposure to artificial UV irradiation (UV lamps, sun bed, solarium) as a matter of principle and exposure to sunlight whenever possible. If hypersensitivity reactions (manifesting as itching, erythema, papules, vesicles) or severe irritation occurs, use of medication should be discontinued.
Drug Drug Interactions Absorption of nadifloxacin after application of nadifloxacin to the human skin is very low (see 5.2 Pharmacokinetic properties) and therefore interaction with systemic medication given concurrently is unlikely. There is no evidence to indicate that the efficacy of systemically administered drugs is influenced by the topical use of nadifloxacin Cream. nadifloxacin may cause skin irritation and therefore it is possible that the concomitant use of peeling agents, astringents or products containing irritating substances such as aromatic and alcoholic agents may result in increased skin irritation.
Drug Pregnancy Interaction For nadifloxacin cream, no clinical data on exposed pregnancies are available. Animal studies do not indicate direct or indirect harmful effects with respect to pregnancy, embryonal, foetal development, parturition or postnatal development Caution should be exercised when prescribing to pregnant women.
Drug Breast feeding Interaction Nadifloxacin is known to be excreted in milk and therefore nadifloxacin Cream should not be used during lactation. Under no circumstances must breast-feeding women apply nadifloxacin on their chest
Drug Machinery Interaction Neither the pharmacodynamic profile nor clinical experience suggest any effect on the ability to drive or use machines.

Drug Dose nadifloxacin Cream should be applied to the acne lesions twice daily as a thin film, i.e. once in the morning and once in the evening before retiring, after cleaning and carefully drying the affected areas. Care should be taken to avoid the eyes and lips. To avoid infections,nadifloxacin cream should be applied with a cotton bud. nadifloxacin should not be used with occlusive dressing. Treatment with nadifloxacin Cream should be applied for up to 8 (eight) weeks. nadifloxacin should not be used in patients under 14 years of age.
Excess Drug Consumption nadifloxacin Cream is not to be taken orally and is for cutaneous use only. Excessive repetitive applications do not accelerate or improve therapeutic outcome but rather involve the risk of marked redness or discomfort. In rats and mice oral nadifloxacin showed very low acute toxicity with minimum lethal doses exceeding 5000 mg/kg body weight. Nevertheless, an appropriate method of gastric emptying should be considered unless the amount of nadifloxacin accidentally ingested is small.
