Presentation and Status in Health Basket
LOCERYL should be applied to the affected nails once or twice a week.
To apply the lacquer, the following recommendations should be carefully complied with:
a) Before the first application of LOCERYL, the nails should be thoroughly cleaned. Using a nail file, the affected areas of the nail (particularly the surface), are filed down as much as possible. Care must be taken not to file the periungual skin.
b) The surface of the nail should then be cleansed and degreased using a cleansing swab provided, and all remaining lacquer removed.
c) The lacquer is applied over the entire surface of the affected nail with one of the reusable applicators and the applicator cleaned before treating another nail to avoid contaminating the lacquer. The applicator must not be wiped off on the edge of the bottle.
d) The applicator is cleaned with one of the swabs provided. The bottle must be kept tightly closed.
The same process is repeated for each affected nail.
Treatment should be continued without interruption until the nail is regenerated and the affected area is cured clinically and free of any fungus.
The required duration of treatment depends essentially on intensity and localization of the infection and the growth rate of the nails. In general, it is six months for finger nails and nine to twelve months for toenails.
• The same nail files must not be used for healthy nails.
• Before each new application, the affected nail is filed if necessary, and always cleaned with the cleansing swabs to eliminate any remaining lacquer.
• When working with organic solvents (thinners, white spirit, etc.), waterproof gloves must be worn to protect the layer of LOCERYL medicated nail lacquer on the nails.
Topical treatment of onycomycosis caused by dermatophytes, yeast and moulds.
Hypersensitivity to the active substance or to one of the ingredients.
Avoid LOCERYL coming into contact with the eyes, ears and mucous membranes.
LOCERYL must be used with precaution in patients suffering from conditions with a predisposition to onychopathies (peripheral circulatory problems, diabetes, immune system diseases) and in patients with dystrophy of the nails or who have nails that are seriously damaged (more than two thirds of the nail plate is affected). In this case, systemic treatment should be considered.
Do not apply ordinary nail lacquer or other cosmetics to treated nails.
Do not light a cigarette or expose to fire until the medicine has dried completely.
In the absence of data, the use of LOCERYL is not recommended for patients under the age of 18.
Reactions to the product are rare.
See prescribing information for full details.
The data available to date does not suggest the existence of clinically significant interactions.
Pregnancy and Lactation
It is not expected that amorolfine will produce any effects during pregnancy or breastfeeding because systemic exposure is negligible. Amorolfine may be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
No systemic signs of overdose are expected after topical application of LOCERYL.
In the event of accidental swallowing, appropriate measures to treat the symptoms should be taken.
