Protopic - Overview

Protopic is a medication used in the treatment of atopic dermatitis (eczema) in some people. People who need a Protopic ointment prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider in the area who can prescribe Protopic cream when appropriate to do so.

What Is Protopic Used For?

Protopic is a medication that has the active ingredient tacrolimus. Protopic is generally used as a second-line treatment for atopic dermatitis in adults and some children who have moderate or severe chronic symptoms. Protopic may work by blocking the activation of T-lymphocytes by engaging an intracellular protein in the cells that leads to the inhibition of calcineurin. Other effects of Protopic cream may include preventing degranulation of basophils and mast cells and interfering with cytokines that activate T cells. Despite these observations, the mechanism of action by which Protopic works is not fully understood. Protopic cream is used in managing symptoms related to severe eczema in both adults and children. Protopic is similar to the medication Elidel.

Protopic - Price, Coupon and Dosage

The branded version of Protopic is expensive, costing almost $300 for Protopic 0.1% cream at many pharmacies. Protopic coupons may be available using a copay card or online. Occasionally, some insurance plans will also cover the costs associated with a Protopic cream prescription, depending on the benefits and the indication. In adults, Protopic cream is typically rubbed into the skin twice per day for six weeks or until symptoms resolved. However, Protopic regimens may be prescribed differently from patient to patient as determined by one's prescribing medical provider. Protopic is available as Protopic 0.1% and Protopic 0.3% creams and ointments. Protopic tubes typically contain 30 grams, 60 grams, or 100 grams of medication and should be stored at 25° C.

Can I Buy Protopic Online?

Protopic ointment and cream requires a prescription before it can be dispensed by a pharmacy in the United States. As a result, Protopic OTC is not available and one cannot just buy Protopic online. The first step to getting Protopic ointment is consulting with a medical provider. People who need a Protopic cream prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Protopic ointment or cream when appropriate to do so.

Protopic - Side Effects

Protopic is a strong medication and, prior to using Protopic, it is important to discuss possible side effects and concerns with one's pharmacist and medical provider. Side effects that can result from a Protopic prescription include redness, irritation, pain and atrophy at the application site. Infection, rash, and a burning sensation on the skin can also occur after Protopic use. Protopic and alcohol should not be used together. People with a known hypersensitivity to Protopic or ingredients in the formulation should not use the medication.
