Fluocinonide Drug Information

A wide variety of skin conditions can be treated with fluocinonide (Lidex®, Vanos®), including:
 
This medicine comes in many forms, including a cream, gel, and ointment. It is applied to the affected skin one to four times a day.
 
Most people tolerate it well, and if side effects do occur, they tend to be minor and easy to treat. Burning, irritation, and dryness are some of the most common side effects of this drug. Long-term use -- which is generally not recommended -- increases your risk of side effects like diabetes and Cushing's syndrome.
 
Before using this drug, it is important to review its safety information. Fluocinonide may not be suitable for everyone, so make sure your healthcare provider knows if you have any other medical conditions or are taking any other type of medicine, including nonprescription drugs, herbal supplements, or vitamins.
