Protopic 0.1% Ointment 60 Gm

Tacrolimus monohydrate 0.1% ointment What Tacrolimus ointment is used for:

  • Tacrolimus monohydrate, is an immunomodulating agent.
  • Tacrolimus ointment is used to treat moderate to severe atopic dermatitis in adults who are not adequately responsive to or are intolerant of conventional therapies such as topical corticosteroids and in children (2 years of age and older) who failed to respond adequately to conventional therapies such as topical corticosteroids.
  • Once moderate to severe atopic dermatitis is cleared or almost cleared after up to 6 weeks treatment of a flare, and if you are experiencing frequent flares (i.e. 4 or more per year), it may be possible to prevent flares coming back or prolong the time you are free from flares by using Tacrolimus ointment twice weekly.
  • In atopic dermatitis, an over-reaction of the skin’s immune system causes skin inflammation (itchiness, redness, dryness). Tacrolimus alters the abnormal immune response and relieves the skin inflammation and the itch.
