Dosage and Administration
Protopic Ointment (Tacrolimus Monohydrate) needs to be applied exactly as your doctor tells you. This ointment should be applied to areas of skin affected by eczema, and it is generally only used for short periods of time. In some cases, patients may be told to repeat treatment, while taking breaks in between treatment periods. It is likely that your doctor will tell you to apply the least amount of ointment possible required to control your symptoms, and you will also be told to avoid swimming or bathing right after applying the ointment, so as to prevent washing it off.

  • Headaches
  • Burning, redness, or itching at the application site

Inform your doctor immediately if any symptoms occur that worry you or if more serious side effects appear such as swelling of the glands, signs of a skin infection, crusting of the hair follicles, or intense pain at the site of application. These conditions may need emergency medical assistance or adjustments to your dosage to prevent more health problems from occurring.

Precautions
Do not apply Protopic Ointment (Tacrolimus Monohydrate) to skin that is broken or severely damaged. It is also recommended to prevent it from contacting mucous membranes such as the eyes, ears, nose, or mouth as this may cause unexpected complications. Do not apply the medication if you have infected eczema, genetic skin defects, skin cancer, or an underactive immune system.

Strictly use Protopic Ointment (Tacrolimus Monohydrate) as prescribed and follow all instructions provided by your doctor. Safe, suitable, and optimum dosage can vary and is dependent on the patient`s health and medical history, as well as the condition you are treating.
