More Instructions for Flurandrenolide Lotion

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you forget a dose, apply it as soon as possible, unless it is almost time for the next dose. In this case, simply skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not use a double dose. Skipping a dose now and then is unlikely to cause a serious problem.
 

How Does It Work?

Flurandrenolide lotion is part of a group of medications known as glucocorticoids, which are a type of corticosteroid (or "steroid" for short). Although glucocorticoids have numerous effects in the body, they are used mostly for their anti-inflammatory or immune-suppressing properties. Flurandrenolide lotion works by decreasing inflammation and suppressing an overactive immune system.
