Your doctor may have suggested Efudex (Fluorouracil-topical) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles.

Efudex 

Dosage

Wash the area to be treated with soap and water, then dry the area thoroughly. Apply the cream to the affected area twice a day with a nonmetal applicator (e.g., a cotton swab) or while wearing a suitable glove. Apply a thin layer, enough to cover the entire affected area of the skin. If fingertips are used to apply, wash your hands well with soap and water immediately afterwards.

Avoid contact with the eyes, eyelids, corners of the nose and mouth, easily irritated areas, or other areas where treatment is not intended. If you apply the medication near the eyes, nose, or mouth, take care to avoid getting the medication in these sensitive areas.

Efudex (Fluorouracil-topical) will cause the skin to become severely inflamed and irritated, but continue to use it for the length of time recommended by your doctor, usually for 2 to 4 weeks. Complete healing of the treated area may take 1 to 2 months after stopping treatment. If the area becomes severely irritated, contact your doctor.

Many things can affect the dose of a 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 using the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to use Efudex (Fluorouracil-topical) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, apply it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If more than a few hours have passed, 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, or you have missed more than one dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Efudex (Fluorouracil-topical) at room temperature and protect it from light, heat, and moisture. Keep it out of the reach of children.

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.

Efudex 

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 Efudex (Fluorouracil-topical).

Covering the affected area: Applying this cream and then covering it with a dressing that doesn't allow air to contact the skin may increase skin irritation caused by Efudex (Fluorouracil-topical). If you are unsure whether to cover the affected area, call your doctor for advice.

Dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD) deficiency: The enzyme dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase breaks down fluorouracil in the body. Efudex (Fluorouracil-topical) should not be used by people with a known DPD deficiency since accumulation of fluorouracil can result in severe side effects.

Sunlight exposure: Fluorouracil may increase your sensitivity to the sun. Prolonged exposure to sunlight, sunlamps, wind, and cold should be avoided during treatment as these may cause more irritation. If you cannot avoid exposure to sunlight, use sunscreen products with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher, and wear protective clothing over treated areas if possible. The sunscreen should be reapplied after swimming. If Sunburn occurs, stop using the medication and call your doctor for advice.

Pregnancy: Efudex (Fluorouracil-topical) should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Efudex (Fluorouracil-topical), contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: It is not known if fluorouracil passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are using Efudex (Fluorouracil-topical), it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.
