Terms & Conditions of Program
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
Alcortin A is a prescription medication used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including:
Alcortin A contains several active ingredients and can potentially treat different skin conditions that are autoimmune, bacterial, or fungal.
The usual dosage of Alcortin A is three to four times daily as directed by your healthcare provider.
The active ingredients in Alcortin A are iodoquinol, hydrocortisone acetate, and aloe vera leaf.
Iodoquinol is an anti-infective agent that works against bacteria and fungi. The mechanism for its anti-infective properties is unclear.
Hydrocortisone is a corticosteroid that reduces inflammation. Many skin conditions are caused by the inflammation and activation of the immune system. Hydrocortisone works by reducing the chemical signals leading to inflammation. It also increases the absorption of Alcortin A.
Known drug-drug interactions with Alcortin A include:
Do not mix Alcortin A with other topical medications, including prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) treatments.
Alcortin A should only be used externally; do not ingest.
Keep away from eyes and other sensitive areas.
Use with caution if you have a history of kidney or liver problems.
Tell your doctor if you have a history of thyroid disease or osteoporosis.
Long-term use of hydrocortisone cream may increase the risk of certain side effects, like skin sensitization.
Ask your doctor and pharmacist about all precautions that apply to you.
