CNL8 (ciclopirox topical solution, 8%) nail lacquer should be used as a component of a comprehensive management program for onychomycosis.  Removal of the unattached, infected nail, as frequently as monthly, by a health care professional, weekly trimming by the patient, and daily application of the medication are all integral parts of this therapy. Careful consideration of the appropriate nail management program should be given to patients with diabetes (see PRECAUTIONS).

Nail Care By Health Care Professionals:  Removal of the unattached, infected nail, as frequently as monthly, trimming of onycholytic nail, and filing of excess horny material should be performed by professionals trained in treatment of nail disorders.

Nail Care By Patient:  Patients should file away (with emery board) loose nail material and trim nails, as required, or as directed by the health care professional, every seven days after CNL8 (ciclopirox topical solution, 8%) nail lacquer is removed with alcohol. CNL8 (ciclopirox topical solution, 8%) nail lacquer should be applied once daily (preferably at bedtime or eight hours before washing) to all affected nails with the applicator brush provided. CNL8 (ciclopirox topical solution, 8%) nail lacquer should be applied evenly over the entire nail plate.

If possible, CNL8 (ciclopirox topical solution, 8%) nail lacquer should be applied to the nail bed, hyponychium, and the under surface of the nail plate when it is free of the nail bed (e.g., onycholysis).

CNL8 (ciclopirox topical solution, 8%) nail lacquer should not be removed on a daily basis. Daily applications should be made over the previous coat and removed with alcohol every seven days. This cycle should be repeated throughout the duration of therapy.
