Neo-Synalar Cream Description
NEO-SYNALAR® cream is intended for topical administration. The active component is the corticosteroid fluocinolone acetonide, which has the chemical name pregna-1,4-diene-3,20-dione,6,9-difluoro-11,21-dihydroxy-16,17-[(1-methylethylidene)bis (oxy)]-,(6α,11β,16α)-, and the antibacterial neomycin sulfate. Fluocinolone acetonide has the following chemical structure:
The cream contains neomycin sulfate 5 mg/g (3.5 mg/g neomycin base) and fluocinolone acetonide 0.25 mg/g in a water-washable aqueous base of butylated hydroxytoluene, cetyl alcohol, citric acid, edetate disodium, methylparaben and propylparaben (preservatives), mineral oil, polyoxyl 20 cetostearyl ether, propylene glycol, simethicone, stearyl alcohol, water (purified) and white wax.
Indications and Usage for Neo-Synalar Cream
NEO-SYNALAR® cream is indicated for the treatment of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses with secondary infection. It has not been demonstrated that this steroid-antibiotic combination provides greater benefit than the steroid component alone after 7 days of treatment (see WARNINGS section).
Topical corticosteroids are contraindicated in those patients with a history of hypersensitivity to any of the components of the preparation. This product should not be used in the external auditory canal if the eardrum is perforated.
If local infection should continue or become severe, or in the presence of systemic infection, appropriate systemic antibacterial therapy, based on susceptibility testing, should be considered.
Because of the concern of nephrotoxicity and ototoxicity associated with neomycin, this combination product should not be used over a wide area or for extended periods of time.
There are articles in the current medical literature that indicate an increase in the prevalence of persons sensitive to neomycin.
Neo-Synalar Cream Dosage and Administration
NEO-SYNALAR® cream is generally applied to the affected area as a thin film from two to four times daily depending on the severity of the condition.
Since NEO-SYNALAR® cream is a water-washable vanishing cream, it is easily applied and leaves no traces.
