Application during pregnancy and lactation
Pimafucin can be used in the therapy of pregnant and nursing women, since there is no evidence that it can have a negative effect on the development of a fetus or a breastfed baby of a mother receiving treatment with this drug.
Method of administration and dosage
Apply the cream to the affected skin 1-4 times a day daily. The duration of therapy is usually 2-3 weeks.
Due to the fact that Pimafucin has low adsorption, the possibility of drug overdose is virtually zero.
At the very beginning of treatment with Pimafucin, the patient may develop diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, but these symptoms disappear very quickly and do not require discontinuation of the drug.
With local use of Pimafucin, the patient may experience a burning sensation and itching in the area of application of the cream.
Storage conditions and periods
The drug is stored in a cool, dark place, out of the reach of children. Shelf life is 4 years. Regardless of the dosage form, it is strictly forbidden to use Pimafucin after the end of the storage period, as this can cause irreparable harm to health.
