Corticosteroids spray over the counter

Abstract: Psoriasis is a common and difficult condition to treat. Corticosteroids and other agents are often used. Zinc pyrithione has been used for other related conditions. This study compares the use of combined micronized clobetasol propionate and zinc pyrithione (DermaZinc™ prescription strength) together VS control cream and generic clobetasol propionate alone. The one month study was double-blind controlled with treatments applied on either side of the body in a randomized fashion. There were 36 patients enrolled in the study. Of those, one was disqualified due to possible improper usage of the two test products DermaZinc™ Spray compounded with 50mg micronized Clobetasol Propionate VS generic Clobetasol Propionate, and three were disqualified due to substantial lapse of time between appointments. The psoriasis was examined for the following parameters: erythema, scaling, and thickness. The results demonstrate that the DermaZinc™ Spray compounded with 50mg micronized Clobetasol Propionate was significantly more effective than the generic clobetasol propionate alone for each parameter. In addition, the DermaZinc™ Spray compounded with 50mg micronized Clobetasol Propionate cleared lesions faster compared to generic Clobetasol Propionate. We conclude that there is a synergistic effect of using corticosteroids with zinc pyrithione in the treatment of psoriasis.

Initial dose based on previous asthma drug therapy and disease severity; 100 mcg via oral inhalation once daily is the usual recommended starting dose for patients not on an inhaled corticosteroid. After 2 weeks of therapy, if asthma symptoms are uncontrolled, increase dose to 200 mcg via oral inhalation once daily. Max: 200 mcg once daily. Administer at the same time each day. The maximum beneficial effect may not be achieved for up to 2 weeks or longer after starting treatment. Titrate to the lowest effective dose once asthma stability is achieved.

Mometasone furoate increased chromosomal aberrations in an in vitro Chinese hamster ovary-cell assay, but did not increase chromosomal aberrations in an in vitro Chinese hamster lung cell assay. Mometasone furoate was not mutagenic in the Ames test or mouse- lymphoma assay, and was not clastogenic in an in vivo mouse micronucleus assay and a rat bone marrow chromosomal aberration assay or a mouse male germ -cell chromosomal aberration assay. Mometasone furoate also did not induce unscheduled DNA synthesis in vivo in rat hepatocytes.

Elimination: The elimination rate of intravenous administered fluticasone propionate is linear over the 250-1000mcg dose range and are characterized by a high plasma clearance (CL=/min). Peak plasma concentrations are reduced by approximately 98% within 3-4 hours and only low plasma concentrations were associated with the terminal half-life. The renal clearance of fluticasone propionate is negligible (<%) and less than 5% as the carboxylic acid metabolite. The major route of elimination is the excretion of fluticasone propionate and its metabolites in the bile.
