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.
LOCOID (hydrocortisone butyrate) is a prescription lotion that can be used to treat atopic dermatitis in patients who are three years or older.
LOCOID is a topical corticosteroid medication that reduces inflammation, redness, itching, and other immune reactions in skin cells. LOCOID induces phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins, which prevent inflammation.
Apply a thin layer to the affected area twice daily and rub gently into the area. Stop treatment when dermatitis has resolved.
The active ingredient in LOCOID is hydrocortisone butyrate.
There are no known drug interactions with topical LOCOID lotion, cream, or ointment.
Wait 10-15 minutes for LOCOID to absorb into the skin before applying other topical medications.
If there is no improvement in two weeks, stop treatment and tell your doctor. LOCOID is not intended to be used for longer than two weeks.
Not for use in the mouth, eyes, or vagina.
Do not wrap the area with an occlusive dressing after applying LOCOID.
Use caution if you have a history of Cushing’s syndrome, hyperglycemia, and glucosuria.
Your doctor should monitor for HPA axis suppression if you are using LOCOID over a large area of the body.
The most common LOCOID cream side effects are application site reactions. LOCOID ointment and lotion have the same side effect.
Other side effects may include:
