Analpram HC

Analpram HC Side Effects Center

Medical Editor: Charles Patrick Davis, MD, PhD

Analpram HC is a topical corticosteroid and anti-itching combination drug indicated for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic (itching) manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses. Analpram HC is available in generic form as hydrocortisone acetate and pramoxine. Rarely and infrequently reported side effects include burning, irritation, dryness, contact dermatitis, and skin atrophy. Analpram HC is for external use only.

Analpram HC is supplied in four preparations: 1 oz tube, 4 gm tubes and 1 oz and 4gm Advanced Kits. Analpram HC is generally applied to the affected area as a thin film three to four times daily depending on the severity of the condition. No warning or drug interactions have been reported with Analpram HC. Serious side effects may include intra-cranial hypertension and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression. Analpram HC and other topical corticosteroids 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. It is not known whether topical administration of Analpram HC could result in sufficient systemic absorption to produce detectable amounts in breast milk. Administration of topical corticosteroids to children should be limited to the least amount compatible with an effective therapeutic regimen because chronic corticosteroid therapy may interfere with the growth and development of children. Parents of pediatric patients should be advised not to use tight-fitting diapers or plastic pants on a child being treated in the diaper area, as these garments may constitute occlusive dressings.
