Important Safety Information
Protopic Ointment is a prescription ointment used to treat moderate to severe eczema. Protopic is for use after other prescription medicines have not worked or when a doctor recommends that other prescription medicines should not be used. Protopic should be used for short periods, and, if needed, treatment may be repeated with breaks in between. Protopic is available in two strengths. Adults may use either Protopic Ointment 0.1% or 0.03%. Children 2 to 15 years of age should only use Protopic Ointment 0.03%. Protopic should not be used on children younger than 2 years of age.
WARNING: The safety of using Protopic, and drugs like it, for a long period of time is not known. A very small number of people who have used Protopic have had cancer (for example, skin or lymphoma). However, a link with Protopic has not been shown. Patients should avoid using Protopic continuously for a long time and apply Protopic only to areas with eczema. If the eczema does not improve within 6 weeks, patients should talk to their doctor.
Protopic should not be used by patients who are allergic to any of its ingredients. The most common side effects with the use of Protopic are stinging, burning, or itching.
Patients should avoid natural or artificial sunlight (sun lamps or tanning beds). Patients should not use Protopic if they have a skin infection on the area of skin to be treated. The skin being treated should not be covered with bandages, dressings, or wraps.
Only your doctor can weigh the risks and benefits and decide if Protopic is right for you. Please see the Medication Guide and talk to your doctor if you have any questions.
