discreet-packaging

Discreet Packaging

Your privacy is important. That's why we send your medication inside a plain delivery box so no one will know what's inside.

Luxiq Dosage

Luxiq (Betamethasone-valerate) is usually applied 2 times daily, morning and evening, for up to 4 weeks or according to your doctor's instructions.

Shake the can, hold it upside down, and dispense a small amount of medication (typically a dollop the size of a golf ball) onto a clean plate or surface. Do not dispense it directly onto hands because the foam will melt upon contact with warm skin. Pick up small amounts of foam with your fingers and gently massage into the affected area until the foam disappears and allow the areas to dry naturally. Enough medication should be applied to completely cover the affected area with a thin layer of foam.

When applying medication to the scalp, move hair away so that the foam can be applied directly to each affected area. Wash your hands immediately after applying the medication. Do not wash or rinse the treated areas immediately after applying medication.

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 using the medication without consulting your doctor.

Avoid applying the medication in or near the eyes.

It is important to use Luxiq (Betamethasone-valerate) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss an application, apply it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next application, skip the missed application 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 Luxiq (Betamethasone-valerate) upright at room temperature, avoid storing in an upside down position, and keep it out of 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.

Luxiq Warnings

Before you begin using Luxiq (Betamethasone-valerate), 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 Luxiq (Betamethasone-valerate).

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 that you stop using Luxiq (Betamethasone-valerate) once in a while. Suddenly stopping corticosteroid medication may cause psoriasis to return.

When it is used during pregnancy, the smallest amount should be used for the shortest time. If you become pregnant while using Luxiq (Betamethasone-valerate), contact your doctor immediately.
