Actikerall How to Take

Fluorouracil - salicylic acid is a combination of two medications. Together they are used to reduce the growth of skin lesions called Actinic Keratosis on the face, forehead, and balding scalp. These lesions are caused by sun damage to the skin. If not treated, they may become cancerous.

Fluorouracil belongs to the class of medications antineoplastics. It works by interfering with cell division and growth to slow down the growth of cells. It is most active in cells that are growing quickly, such as skin cells affected by actinic keratosis. Salicylic acid is a keratolytic: it breaks down the outer layer of the skin to allow fluorouracil to be absorbed more effectively.

Actikerall may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Actikerall may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Actikerall may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Actikerall for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Actikerall, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Actikerall without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Actikerall to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Actikerall if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Actikerall Dosage

The usual adult dose of fluorouracil - salicylic acid is 1 application of the solution to the lesions, once daily. Several lesions may be treated at a time, but the area being treated should not be larger than 25 cm² (5 cm × 5 cm). A total of 10 lesions may be treated at a time.

Fluorouracil - salicylic acid should only come into contact with the lesion and a very small area of healthy skin surrounding the lesion.

Clean the affected area with warm water and wait until the skin has completely dried before applying the solution.

Actikerall comes in a bottle with a brush applicator attached to the cap. Wipe the brush on the neck of the bottle before applying it to the affected area. After applying the solution to the lesion, let the solution dry on the skin, uncovered. A white film will form over the affected area. This improves the absorption of the medication into the lesion and protects the lesion from dirt and debris. Do not cover the treatment area with any type of dressing. Before applying the next dose, peel the film off the lesion to expose it to the next dose of medication. Warm water may also help remove the film.

Do not allow Actikerall to come in contact with the eyes, the inside of the nose or mouth, or the genitals. Close the lid of the bottle tightly after using to prevent it from drying out. Do not use Actikerall if it dries out or forms any crystals.

Actikerall usually starts to work within 6 weeks. Continue to use the medication for up to 12 weeks or until the lesions have completely cleared up. It may take up to 8 weeks after stopping the medication for the lesions to completely heal.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to use Actikerall exactly as prescribed by your doctor.

If you miss a dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Actikerall at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children. Actikerall is flammable. Keep it away from fire or flames. If there is any medication left in the bottle 3 months after opening it, safely discard the remaining medication.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
