It is important to use Dermovate (Clobetasol-propionate) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, apply it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not apply 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 Dermovate (Clobetasol-propionate) at room temperature, protect it from light, and keep it out of the reach of children. The spray is flammable and should be kept away from heat or flame.

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.

Dermovate Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Dermovate (Clobetasol-propionate).

Inform all of your doctors that you are using topical (skin-applied) corticosteroids.

Absorption: When clobetasol 17 - propionate is used over extensive areas for prolonged periods and under dressings that don't breathe, it is possible that enough medication will absorb into the bloodstream to cause unwanted side effects. Therefore, it is advisable to use Dermovate (Clobetasol-propionate) for brief periods only and to stop using it as soon as the problem clears. Talk to your health care provider about how long you should use Dermovate (Clobetasol-propionate).

Diabetes: When clobetasol 17-propionate is used over large areas of the body for prolonged periods or under dressings that don't breathe it is possible that enough medication will absorb into the bloodstream to affect blood sugar levels. If you have diabetes, your doctor should closely monitor your condition while you are using clobetasol 17-propionate, as it may affect blood sugar control (either increase or decrease blood sugar levels).

Eyes: Use Dermovate (Clobetasol-propionate) with care on lesions close to the eye. Getting the medication in the eye can increase the risk of increased eye pressure, Glaucoma, or Cataracts.

Infection: Topical corticosteroids may increase the risk of developing a skin infection. Contact your doctor if you notice any increased redness, swelling, heat or pain around the area where the medication is applied as these are possible signs of infection.

Medical treatment: Inform all health professionals involved in your care that you have been using a topical (skin-applied) corticosteroid.

Thinning of skin: Using topical corticosteroid medications for a long period of time can cause skin to thin or soften or cause stretch marks. Your doctor may recommend you stop using Dermovate (Clobetasol-propionate) once in a while or to apply to one area of the body at a time. Suddenly stopping corticosteroid medication may cause psoriasis to return.

Pregnancy: Dermovate (Clobetasol-propionate) should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while using Dermovate (Clobetasol-propionate), contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: Dermovate (Clobetasol-propionate) may pass into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are using clobetasol 17-propionate, it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

The safety and effectiveness of using Dermovate (Clobetasol-propionate) have not been established for children. Its use by children is not recommended.

Seniors: People over the age of 65 may need to use a smaller amount of Dermovate (Clobetasol-propionate) or use it less often.
