Fusidic acid.
Description
Each gram contains: Fusidic Acid 20 mg, Cream base q.s.
Action
Pharmacology: Fusidic acid/Sodium Fusidate is a steroidal antibiotic with a bacteriostatic activity, mainly against gram positive bacteria.
Fusidic acid/Sodium Fusidate inhibits bacterial protein synthesis although, in contrast to drugs such as the macrolides or tetracyclines, it does not bind to the bacterial ribosome, but inhibits a factor necessary for translocation of peptide subunits and elongation of the peptide chain. It is capable of inhibiting protein synthesis in mammalian cells but exerts a selective action against susceptible infecting organisms because of poor penetration into the host cells.
Indications/Uses
Fusidic Acid/Sodium Fusidate is indicated, either alone or in combination with systemic therapy, in the treatment of skin infections caused by Staphylococci.
Dosage/Direction for Use
Fusidic Acid/Sodium Fusidate is applied to the affected area 2-3 times daily, generally for a period of 7 days.
Or as prescribed by the physician.
Adverse Reactions
Fusidic Acid/Sodium Fusidate is remarkably well tolerated and there is an extremely low frequency of hypersensitivity reactions.
