Tri-Luma Patient Information including If I Miss a Dose

What happens if I miss a dose (Tri-Luma)?

Use the missed dose as soon as you remember, or wait until the next night to apply the medication. Do not use extra medicine to make up the missed dose.

What happens if I overdose (Tri-Luma)?

An overdose of fluocinolone, hydroquinone, and tretinoin topical applied to the skin is not likely to cause life-threatening symptoms.

What should I avoid while using fluocinolone, hydroquinone, and tretinoin topical (Tri-Luma)?

Avoid exposure to sunlight or artificial UV rays (sunlamps or tanning beds). This medication can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight and sunburn may result. Use a sunscreen (minimum SPF 15) and wear protective clothing if you must be out in the sun.

Your skin may be more sensitive to weather extremes such as cold and wind. Protect your skin with clothing and use a moisturizing cream or lotion as needed.

Avoid using skin products that can cause irritation, such as harsh soaps, shampoos, or skin cleansers, hair coloring or permanent chemicals, hair removers or waxes, or skin products with alcohol, spices, astringents, or lime. Do not use other medicated skin products unless your doctor has told you to.

What other drugs will affect fluocinolone, hydroquinone, and tretinoin topical (Tri-Luma)?

Before using this medication, tell your doctor if you also use other medications that can make you more sensitive to sunlight, including:

  • a diuretic (water pill);
  • a tetracycline antibiotic, including minocycline (Dynacin, Minocin, Vectrin), doxycycline (Doryx, Monodox, Vibramycin, Vibra-Tabs), demeclocycline (Declomycin), and others;
  • a fluoroquinolone antibiotic such as ciprofloxacin (Cipro), levofloxacin (Levaquin), and others;
