Diprolene Ointment

INDICATIONS

DIPROLENE Ointment is a super-high potency corticosteroid indicated for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses in patients 13 years and older. The total dose should not exceed 50 g per week because of the potential for the drug to suppress the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Apply a thin film of DIPROLENE Ointment (betamethasone dipropionate) to the affected skin once or twice daily. DIPROLENE Ointment (betamethasone dipropionate) is a super-high potency topical corticosteroid. Treatment with DIPROLENE Ointment (betamethasone dipropionate) should be limited to 50 g per week.

As with other corticosteroids, therapy should be discontinued when control is achieved. If no improvement is seen within 2 weeks, reassessment of diagnosis may be necessary.

DIPROLENE Ointment (betamethasone dipropionate) should not be used with occlusive dressings. Diprolene Ointment (betamethasone dipropionate) should not be applied to the diaper area if the patient requires diapers or plastic pants as these garments may constitute occlusive dressing.
