Tube, 10 g
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Apply Sparingly to the affected area once or twice daily until improvement occurs and discontinue when control is achieved. In the more responsive conditions, this may be within a few days. Treatment should not exceed two consecutive weeks and the total dose should not exceed 50 g per week as there is a Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis suppressing potential. Reconsider the diagnosis if there is no improvement after two weeks of treatment. If long-term corticosteroid treatment is needed, a low potency preparation should be used. The product, Elopro Clobetasol propionate cream can be used within 35 days after opened.
