CLOBEX Lotion, 0.05% is for topical use only, and not for ophthalmic, oral or intravaginal use.
CLOBEX Lotion, 0.05% should be applied to the affected skin areas twice daily and rubbed in gently and completely.
The total dosage should not exceed 50 g (50 mL or 1.75 fl. oz.) per week because of the potential for the drug to suppress the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis.
CLOBEX Lotion, 0.05% contains a topical corticosteroid; therefore treatment should be limited to 2 consecutive weeks for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses and up to 2 additional weeks in localized lesions (less than 10% body surface area) of moderate to severe plaque psoriasis that have not sufficiently improved after the initial 2 weeks of treatment with CLOBEX Lotion, 0.05%.
Unless directed by physician, CLOBEX Lotion, 0.05% should not be used with occlusive dressings.
