FAQs

Q. What precautions should I take while using Canflo BN?

Canflo BN should not be used on the face and contact with eyes should be avoided. Do not apply a bandage or dressing on the area being treated, as this will increase absorption of the medicine and increase the risk of side-effects. This medicine should only be used for the condition it is prescribed for. Do not use it for any other condition without consulting your doctor. Do not give it to other people even if their condition appears to be the same.

Q. How to use Canflo BN?

Canflo BN should be used as advised by the doctor or as per the instructions on the label of the medicine. Apply a thin layer of Canflo BN to cover the affected areas. The dose would depend on the condition for which it is prescribed. Wash your hands after using Canflo BN, unless it is used for treating infection of the hands. Avoid contact with the eyes.

Q. What would happen if I use a higher than the recommended dose of Canflo BN and for long periods?

The dosage and duration of Canflo BN should be strictly according to the doctor’s advice. This medicine contains clobetasol which when used in higher doses and for longer periods can get absorbed in the blood and cause adrenal suppression and Cushing's syndrome. It can cause weight gain, high blood pressure and rounding of the face. Its application can cause a change in color of skin at the site of application. Veins beneath the skin become visible because of the thinning and weakening of the skin. There could also be an increased hair growth. If you experience an increased severity of your symptoms, please consult your doctor for re-evaluation.

Q. What are the instructions for the storage and disposal of Canflo BN?

Keep this medicine in the container or the pack it came in, tightly closed. Store it according to the instructions mentioned on the pack or label. Dispose of the unused medicine. Make sure it is not consumed by pets, children and other people.

Q. What are the contraindications associated with the use of Canflo BN?

Use of Canflo BN is considered to be harmful for patients with known allergy to any of the components or excipients of this medicine.

Consult your doctor before using it for any condition.
