Medically reviewed by Drugs.com. Last updated on June 23, 2020.
Generic name: clobetasol propionate 0.5mg in 1g
Dosage form: cream
Apply a thin layer of TEMOVATE E® (clobetasol propionate emollient cream) Emollient, 0.05% to the affected skin areas twice daily and rub in gently and completely (see INDICATIONS AND USAGE).
TEMOVATE E® Emollient is a super-high potency topical corticosteroid; therefore, treatment should be limited to 2 consecutive weeks, and amounts greater than 50 g/week should not be used.
In moderate to severe plaque-type psoriasis, TEMOVATE E® Emollient applied to 5% to 10% of body surface area can be used for up to 4 weeks. The total dosage should not exceed 50 g/week. When dosing for more than 2 weeks, any additional benefits of extending treatment should be weighed against the risk of HPA suppression. As with other highly active corticosteroids, therapy should be discontinued when control has been achieved. If no improvement is seen within 2 weeks, reassessment of diagnosis may be necessary. Treatment beyond 4 consecutive weeks is not recommended. Use in pediatric patients under 16 years of age has not been studied.
TEMOVATE E® Emollient should not be used with occlusive dressings.
