Sodium Sulfacetamide 10% Sulfur 5% Emollient Cream

Rx Only

DESCRIPTION: Sodium sulfacetamide is a sulfonamide with antibacterial activity while sulfur acts as a keratolytic agent. Chemically sodium sulfacetamide is N-[(4-aminophenyl) sulfonyl]-acetamide, monosodium salt, monohydrate. The structural formula is:

Each gram of Sodium Sulfacetamide 10% Sulfur 5% Emollient Cream contains 100 mg of Sodium Sulfacetamide, USP and 50 mg of Sulfur in a base containing BHT, Ceteareth-20, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Disodium EDTA, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Ethylparaben, Fragrance, Glyceryl Monostearate SE, Methylparaben, Phenoxyethanol, Propylene Glycol, Propylparaben, Purified Water, Sodium Thiosulfate and Xanthan Gum.

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY: Sodium Sulfacetamide exhibits antibacterial activity. It is believed to block bacterial growth by acting as a competitive antagonist of para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA). While absorption through intact skin has not been determined for sodium sulfacetamide, it is estimated that 1% of topically applied sulfur is absorbed. Although the exact mode of the keralytic activity of sulfur is unknown, it is reported to result from the interaction of sulfur with the cysteine content of keratinocytes. In combination with sulfacetamide, sulfur has been reported to inhibit P. acnes, thereby reducing the associated inflammation.

WARNINGS: Although rare, sensitivity to sodium sulfacetaminde may occur. Therefore, caution and careful supervision should be observed when prescribing this drug for patients who may be prone to hypersensitivity to topical sulfonamides. Systemic toxic reactions such as agranulocytosis, acute hemolytic anemia, purpura hemorrhagica, drug fever, jaundice and contact dermatitis indicate hypersensitivity to sulfonamides. Particular caution should be employed if areas of denuded or abraded skin are involved.

PRECAUTIONS: General - If irritation develops, use of the product should be discontinued and appropriate therapy instituted. Patients should be carefully observed for possible local irritation or sensitization during long-term therapy. The object of this therapy is to achieve desquamation without irritation, but sodium sulfacetamide and sulfur can cause reddening and scaling of the epidermis. These side effects are not unusual in the treatment of acne vulgaris, but patients should be cautioned about the possibility.

Information for patients - Avoid contact with eyes, eyelids, lips and mucous membranes. If accidental contact occurs, rinse with water. If excessive irritation develops, discontinue use and consult your physician.
