Tacrolimus Ointment - Overview
Tacrolimus is a medication used for short-term management of non-continuous treatment of atopic dermatitis and eczema in people who have not responded well to other treatments. People in need of a tacrolimus cream prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe tacrolimus ointment when appropriate to do so.
Tacrolimus - Mechanism of Action
Tacrolimus, marketed under the name Protopic, is an immunosuppressant medication originating from Streptomyces tsukubaensis. Tacrolimus belongs to a class of medications known as topical calcineurin inhibitors and is meant for application to the skin. It is not well understood how tacrolimus works in the setting of atopic dermatitis but it is thought that tacrolimus interferes with immune system components such as T-lymphocytes and cytokines (and block their release from cells). This interference may suppress the immune's system activity, reducing symptoms related to atopic dermatitis.
Tacrolimus Cream - Cost and Coupon
As Protopic, tacrolimus is present as tacrolimus 0.03% or tacrolimus 0.1% per gram of Protopic ointment in addition to other ingredients. Tacrolimus, as Protopic, is barely absorbed into the blood after topical application of the ointment. After oral administration, most tacrolimus is excreted from the body in the feces with an elimination half-life of over 30 hours. One 30 gram tube of tacrolimus 0.1% ointment is moderately expensive, costing approximately $80 at many pharmacies. Tacrolimus ointment coupons are available online and some insurance plans may cover the cost of a tacrolimus cream prescription. Tacrolimus (Protopic) should be stored at 25° C.
Can I Buy Tacrolimus Online?
Tacrolimus is a prescription medication and is not available over the counter. One cannot just buy tacrolimus online legitimately without first consulting a licensed medical provider in the US. People in need of a tacrolimus prescription, however, can use Push Health to connect with a provider who can prescribe tacrolimus when safe to do so.
Tacrolimus - Side Effects
Tacrolimus can cause side effects in certain people. Side effects associated with tacrolimus use include skin burning, flu-like symptoms, itching, headache and redness. People with an allergy or hypersensitivity to tacrolimus or similar medications should not use it. Tacrolimus and alcohol should not be used concomitantly. Questions about side effects that may result from tacrolimus use should be directed to a medical provider and pharmacist prior to starting the medication.
